A genetic origin in diseases like the long QT syndrome, the Brugada syndrome, or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy have been identified over the past years. These diseases have in common that they may result in sudden cardiac death of the patient. Recognition of patients based on their phenotype and application in clinical practice of the knowledge acquired on the genetic basis may have a major impact on how we approach them. In the long QT syndrome several mutations have been identified both in the… CONTINUE READING
