Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Brugada syndrome is an inherited arrhythmia associated with characteristic ST elevation in the right precordial leads and sudden cardiac death. The average age of sudden cardiac death is 40 years; reported pediatric cases remain rare. Genetic testing and increased disease awareness may result in many more children being diagnosed with Brugada syndrome.
