Sudden cardiac death: epidemiology, pathogenesis and management.
TLDR
The advancement in molecular autopsy and genetic testing, the role of target temperature management, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and transvenous and subcutaneous implantable cardioverter devices (ICDs) are described.
Secondary prevention of sudden cardiac death
Sudden Cardiac Death in Systemic Sclerosis: Diagnostics to Assess Risk and Inform Management
TLDR
The need for a future research agenda that addresses the underlying epidemiology of SCD in SSc and the current understanding of how each of these mechanisms may contribute to cardiac death is highlighted.
Successful resuscitation of sudden cardiac death: education matters
TLDR
The study conducted by Møller et al shows that survival following SCD depends on one’s socioeconomic status, among other factors, and it is of major importance to improve the quality of bystander intervention.
Sudden cardiac death: an update
TLDR
Advances in diagnostic tools, disease‐specific therapy and defibrillator technology are improving outcomes for patients and their families but there is still much progress to be made in risk stratification and personalise patient care.
Antihypertensive therapy and sudden cardiac death, should we expect the unexpected?
TLDR
The purpose of this review was to present the relationship between HTN, LVH, and SCD and to describe the potential association between antihypertensive pharmacotherapy and risk of SCD.
Sudden Cardiac Death—A New Insight Into Potentially Fatal Genetic Markers
TLDR
This study analyzed clinical, ECG and laboratory data, as well as results of genetic testing analysis in family members to elucidate potential genetic etiology of SCD in this family.
Sudden cardiac death in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction: an updated review
TLDR
There is a great unmet need in the field of SCD in HFpEF regarding risk stratification and appropriate device therapy with ICD implantation and this article aims at clarifying the mechanisms, risk factors, and prevention ofSCD inHFpEF.

Sudden cardiac death: epidemiology and risk factors
TLDR
The incidence, temporal trends, and triggers of SCD, and its demographic, clinical, and genetic risk factors are reviewed and the available evidence supporting the use of public-access defibrillators is discussed.
The spectrum of epidemiology underlying sudden cardiac death.
TLDR
The wide-ranging spectrum of epidemiology underlying SCD within both the general population and in high-risk subsets with established cardiac disease is reviewed placing an emphasis on recent global trends, remaining uncertainties, and potential targeted preventive strategies.
Incidence of sudden cardiac death in China: analysis of 4 regional populations.
Risk stratification for sudden cardiac death.
TLDR
Noninvasive techniques and measurements, such as T-wave alternans, signal-averaged electrocardiography, nonsustained ventricular tachycardia, heart rate variability, and heart rate turbulence, have been proposed as useful tools in identifying patients at risk for SCD.
Prospective Study of Sudden Cardiac Death Among Women in the United States
TLDR
These prospective data suggest that, as in men, coronary heart disease risk factors predict risk of sudden cardiac death in women and that SCD is usually an arrhythmic death, and prevention of atherosclerosis or ventricular arrhythmias may reduce the incidence of SCD in women.
Sudden Cardiac Death Caused by Coronary Heart Disease
TLDR
Despite a rapidly developing base of knowledge about the tachyarrhythmic manifestations of acute coronary syndromes and chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy, especially during the past 25 years, important challenges remain for the prediction and prevention of SCD caused by coronary heart disease (CHD).
Risk Factors of Sudden Cardiac Death in the Young: Multiple-Year Community-Wide Assessment
TLDR
Sports was a trigger of SCA in a minority of cases, and, in most patients, SCA occurred without warning symptoms, suggesting the potential role of public health approaches that screen for cardiovascular risk factors at earlier ages.
Global and Regional Patterns in Cardiovascular Mortality From 1990 to 2013
TLDR
Global trends and regional variation in premature mortality attributable to CVD are described and the limitations of existing models of epidemiological transitions for explaining the observed distribution and trends of CVD mortality are described.
