Hubert Shaw (Editor)

Series: Congenital Disorders – Laboratory and Clinical Research
BISAC: MED010000

Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a sudden cardiac death disease characterized by right bundle-branch block with ST segment elevation in the lead V1 and V2 in the absence of any structural diseases. This syndrome is highly associated with sudden cardiac death, especially in young adults. It is associated with a history of SCD in up to four first-degree family members.

The authors of this book examine Brugada Syndrome (BS), and its possible link to arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy. Furthermore, Type 1 ECG is considered a diagnostic sign for the Brugada Syndrome and its clinical significance is explored in this book. Lastly, the book presents the readers with a case report of a patient with Brugada syndrome characterized by an abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG).
