Four decades of progress in understanding the electrogenesis, clinical value and recording methods of the epsilon wave have been achieved since it was first recognized in 1977. According to the new 2010 Task Force criteria, epsilon waves are a major criterion in the diagnosis of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. Epsilon waves can be observed in the right precordial leads when a relevant intramyocardial conduction defect is present in the right ventricle. In this paper, we summarize the progress, challenge, and controversies in the definition of epsilon waves.
