Genetics can contribute to the prognosis of Brugada syndrome: A pilot model for risk stratification

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Brugada syndrome is an inherited arrhythmogenic disorder leading to sudden death predominantly in the 3-4 decade. To date the only reliable treatment is the implantation of a cardioverter defibrillator; however, better criteria for risk stratification are needed, especially for asymptomatic subjects. Brugada syndrome genetic bases have been only partially understood, accounting for
