    Hi there--

    I have never coded this before but doing a little research it looks like this is a form of nonischemic cardiomyopathy. Its sometimes called arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy and can be abbreviated as ARVD/C.
    If it was me, I think I would code this as 425.4.
