Inherited Ventricular Arrhythmia (RR IVA)

Arrhythmia, Sudden death


A research team led by Dr Kathryn Meurs described the genetic variant associated with Inherited Ventricular Arrhythmia in Rhodesian Ridgebacks (RR IVA). However, based on the results of genetic testing of more than one hundred RR dogs, it was found that the variant is too common in RR and does not explain ventricular arrhythmia in an Rhodesian Ridgeback population. Therefore, genetic testing does not seem to be useful or beneficial.
