OBJECTIVES Our objective in this study was to evaluate Tpeak-Tend interval (Tp-e) and other electrocardiographic parameters as risk factors for recurrence of life-threatening cardiac events in patients with the Brugada syndrome (BS). BACKGROUND The Tp-e interval in the electrocardiogram (ECG) has been reported to predict life-threatening arrhythmias in(More)
The Brugada syndrome is the most frequent electrical cause of sudden death in patients with structurally normal heart. It is characterized by ST segment elevation in V1-V3 leads, pseudo right bundle branch block and proneness for episodes of life-threatening ventricular cardiac arrhythmias. The aim of this study was to characterize patients with Brugada(More)
Throughout the 13 years of recognizing the Brugada syndrome as a separate entity, there has been a search for invasive and non-invasive markers for detecting risk of life-threatening arrhythmic events, particularly for asymptomatic individuals in whom the first manifestation may be sudden cardiac death. Hence, the preclinical diagnosis is pivotal for(More)
We present a Brugada syndrome patient who suffered an aborted sudden death. The ajmaline test (1 mg/kg body weight) induced accentuated alternans ST-segment elevation in V1-V2 without ventricular arrhythmias. It could represent silent ischaemia not detected before, failure of myocardial regions to repolarize in alternate beats due to transmural dispersion(More)
