Several clinical, electrocardiographic (ECG) and electrophysiological markers have been proposed to provide optimal risk stratification in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS). Of the different markers, only a spontaneous type 1 ECG pattern has clearly shown a sufficiently high predictive value. This review article highlights specific ECG markers based on depolarization and/or repolarization that have been associated with an increased risk of arrhythmic events in patients with BrS. 

Figures and Topics from this paper

Temporal Variability in Electrocardiographic Indices in Subjects With Brugada Patterns
TLDR
Temporal variability in ECG indices may provide additional value for risk stratification in patients with Brugada pattern, and the relationship between temporal variability of ECG markers and arrhythmic outcomes is evaluated. Expand
Wide QRS complex and the risk of major arrhythmic events in Brugada syndrome patients: A systematic review and meta‐analysis
TLDR
Assessment of the correlation of wide QRS complex with MAE by a systematic review and meta‐analysis of previous studies found it to be useful as a predictor of MAE in BrS patients. Expand
Automated Electrocardiogram Analysis Identifies Novel Predictors of Ventricular Arrhythmias in Brugada Syndrome
TLDR
Automated ECG analysis revealed novel risk markers in Brugada syndrome that should be validated in larger prospective studies. Expand
An Open Invitation to Join the International Brugada Electrocardiographic Indices Registry
TLDR
The Brugada Electrocardiographic Indices Registry will evaluate the disease life course, risk factors, and prognosis in a large series of BrugADA patients and provide insights for improving risk stratification. Expand
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
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
Ventricular Tachyarrhythmia Risk in Paediatric/Young vs. Adult Brugada Syndrome Patients: A Territory-Wide Study
TLDR
Clinical and ECG presentation of BrS vary between the paediatric/young and adult population in BrS, and risk stratification and management strategies for younger patients should take into consideration and adopt an individualised approach. Expand
Management of acute toothache in patient with Brugada syndrome
TLDR
The aim of this report was to give to dental practitioners an update on this theme and to describe multidisciplinary approach adopted in Complex Operative Unit of Odontostomatology of University of Bari Aldo Moro. Expand
Territory-wide cohort study of Brugada syndrome in Hong Kong: predictors of long-term outcomes using random survival forests and non-negative matrix factorisation
TLDR
Machine learning techniques using NMF and RSF significantly improves overall risk stratification performance and the NMF-RSF showed the best predictive performance compared with RSF and Cox regression models. Expand
Tpeak‐Tend, Tpeak‐Tend/QT ratio and Tpeak‐Tend dispersion for risk stratification in Brugada Syndrome: A systematic review and meta‐analysis
Brugada syndrome is an ion channelopathy that predisposes affected subjects to ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation (VT/VF), potentially leading to sudden cardiac death (SCD). Tpeak‐Tend intervals,Expand

Differences in 12‐Lead Electrocardiogram Between Symptomatic and Asymptomatic Brugada Syndrome Patients
TLDR
Standard 12‐lead electrocardiogram (ECG) would give useful information for identifying patients at risk of severe arrhythmias with Brugada syndrome. Expand
Predictors of Atrial Tachyarrhythmias in Subjects with Type 1 ECG Pattern of Brugada Syndrome
TLDR
Investigation whether various 12‐lead electrocardiogram (ECG) and electrophysiological parameters may help to differentiate subjects with a high probability to develop ATs in patients with Brugada syndrome. Expand
Noninvasive Risk Stratification of Subjects with a Brugada‐Type Electrocardiogram and No History of Cardiac Arrest
TLDR
A noninvasive strategy to detect a high‐risk group in a long‐term follow-up study of subjects with a Brugada‐type ECG, and no history of cardiac arrest is sought. Expand
Electrocardiographic parameters and fatal arrhythmic events in patients with Brugada syndrome: combination of depolarization and repolarization abnormalities.
TLDR
The combination of depolarization and repolarization abnormalities in BrS is associated with later VF events and the combination of these abnormalities is useful for detecting high- and low-risk BrS patients. Expand
Risk stratification in Brugada syndrome: Clinical characteristics, electrocardiographic parameters, and auxiliary testing.
TLDR
The value of electrophysiologic studies for predicting spontaneous VF remains controversial, and this includes programmed stimulation protocols that avoid a third extrastimuli or stimulation from the right ventricular outflow. Expand
Methods for Improving the Diagnosis of a Brugada ECG Pattern
TLDR
A case that is suspicious but not diagnostic for Brugada syndrome is presented and the application of ECG methodologies for increasing or decreasing suspicion for a diagnosis of BrS is discussed. Expand
A New Electrocardiographic Marker of Sudden Death in Brugada Syndrome: The S-Wave in Lead I.
TLDR
The presence of a wide and/or large S-wave in lead I was a powerful predictor of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias in patients with BrS and no history of cardiac arrest at presentation. Expand

  • 2012
TLDR
An extensive review of the literature identified case reports that were classified according to their suspected etiological mechanism and the term Brugada phenocopy is proposed to describe conditions that induce Brugda‐like ECG manifestations in patients without true BrugADA syndrome. 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
Epsilon-like waves and ventricular conduction abnormalities in subjects with type 1 ECG pattern of Brugada syndrome.
TLDR
Specific ECG markers that reflect ventricular conduction delay in ARVC/D are commonly observed in subjects with spontaneous or drug-induced type 1 ECG pattern of BS as well, suggesting that depolarization abnormalities may be related to subtle underlying structural abnormalities. Expand
