Brugada syndrome: A comprehensive review of pathophysiological mechanisms and risk stratification strategies
TLDR
Evidence from computational modelling, pre-clinical and clinical studies illustrates that molecular abnormalities found in BrS lead to alterations in excitation wavelength (λ), which ultimately elevates arrhythmic risk. Expand
Specific Cardiovascular Diseases and Competitive Sports Participation: Channelopathies
TLDR
This chapter will review the principal features of these diseases, with a primary focus on diagnosis and clinical management, and recommends restriction from competitive sport should be applied. Expand
Electrocardiographic conduction and repolarization markers associated with sudden cardiac death: moving along the electrocardiography waveform.
TLDR
A review of novel ECG indices including ventricular ectopic QRS interval, the f99 index and EntropyXQT, which integrates mathematical and physical calculations for determining the risk markers, seeks to encapsulate the development of old and new ECG markers along with their associated utility and shortcomings in clinical practice. Expand
High risk electrocardiographic markers in Brugada syndrome
TLDR
Specific ECG markers based on depolarization and/or repolarization that have been associated with an increased risk of arrhythmic events in patients with BrS are highlighted. Expand
Higher Dispersion Measures of Conduction and Repolarization in Type 1 Compared to Non-type 1 Brugada Syndrome Patients: An Electrocardiographic Study From a Single Center
TLDR
Higher levels of dispersion in conduction and repolarization are found in type 1 than non-type 1 BrS patients, explaining the higher incidence of arrhythmias in the former. Expand
Meta-analysis of Tpeak-Tend and Tpeak-Tend/QT ratio for risk stratification in congenital long QT syndrome.
TLDR
This meta-analysis showed that Tpeak-Tend interval is significant higher in individuals who are at elevated risk of adverse events in congenital LQTS, offering incremental value for risk stratification. Expand
T-Wave Indices and Atherosclerosis
TLDR
This review provides a comprehensive overview on how Tpeak-Tend is altered in different atherosclerotic conditions such as hypertension, stable coronary artery disease, acute coronary obstruction, and coronary slow flow as well as inflammatory diseases affecting the arterial tree. Expand

TLDR
The interval from the peak to the end of the electrocardiographic T wave (T peak − Tend) and (Tpeak − Tend)/QT ratio, were strong risk markers for Brugada patients with life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. Expand
Tpeak-Tend interval and Tpeak-Tend/QT ratio in patients with Brugada syndrome.
TLDR
Assessment of the Tpeak-Tend intervals or the TpTe/QT ratio in lead V1 is potentially useful as a non-invasive risk marker for BrS patients with life-threatening arrhythmias. Expand
Increased Tpeak-Tend interval is highly and independently related to arrhythmic events in Brugada syndrome.
TLDR
The Tpe interval in the precordial leads is highly related to malignant ventricular arrhythmias in this large cohort of patients with BS, and this simple electrocardiographic parameter could be used to refine risk stratification. Expand
Arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy and Brugada syndrome: Diseases of the connexome
TLDR
Data is summarized in support of the notion that the cardiac intercalated disc is the host of a protein interacting network, called “the connexome”, where molecules classically defined as belonging to one particular structure actually interact with others, and together, control excitability, electrical coupling and intercellular adhesion in the heart.

The pathophysiological mechanism underlying Brugada syndrome: depolarization versus repolarization.
This Point/Counterpoint presents a scholarly debate of the mechanisms underlying the electrocardiographic and arrhythmic manifestations of Brugada syndrome (BrS), exploring in detail the availableExpand
Abnormal expression of cardiac neural crest cells in heart development: a different hypothesis for the etiopathogenesis of Brugada syndrome.
TLDR
Bruada syndrome is a new arrhythmoenic syndrome consisting of syncopal episodes or sudden eath caused by malignant ventricular tachyarrhythmias in atients devoid of clear-cut evidence of structural cardiac ompromise. Expand
