Drug-induced Brugada syndrome (BrS) represents a great challenge for the prescribing clinicians as well as for those involved in the development of novel pharmaceuticals and in the regulatory bodies responsible with monitoring drug safety. Apart from well-known cardiac agents (mainly Class I antiarrhythmics), an increasing number of noncardiac agents, including psychotropic and anesthetic drugs, have been shown to induce the characteristic Brugada electrocardiogram pattern predisposing to fatal… CONTINUE READING
