A novel cardiac ryanodine receptor gene (RyR2) mutation in an athlete with aborted sudden cardiac death: a case of adult-onset catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia

Abstract

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) in athletes <35 years of age are mostly due to congenital or acquired cardiac malformations or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. However, ion channelopathies such as catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) or long-QT syndromes, which are less frequently observed, are also potential pathogenesis of SCD in young… (More)
