BACKGROUND Brugada syndrome is an arrhythmogenic disease characterized by an ECG pattern of ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death as a result of ventricular fibrillation. Controversy exists with regard to risk stratification and therapeutic management, particularly in asymptomatic individuals. (More)
(I-MIBG) Imaging in Brugada Syndrome To the Editor: We read with interest a recent article in Circulation by Wichter et al1 on cardiac autonomic dysfunction in Brugada syndrome. The authors demonstrated that regionally reduced iodine-123-metaiodobenzylguanidine (I-MIBG) uptake in the inferior and septal left ventricular wall was present in 8 (47%) of 17(More)
The congenital long-QT syndrome (LQTS) is a heritable disorder associated with corrected QT (QTc)-interval prolongation on the ECG and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death from torsade de pointes polymorphic ventricular tachycardia. Mutations in multiple genes, primarily encoding ion channel subunits have been identified in patients with the disorder.(More)
