Clinical and Electrocardiographic Differences in Brugada Syndrome With Spontaneous or Drug-Induced Type 1 Electrocardiogram.

Circ J 2019 Jan 12. Epub 2019 Jan 12.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center.

Background: Spontaneous type 1 electrocardiogram (ECG) in the right precordial lead is a dominant predictor of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in Brugada syndrome (BrS). In some BrS patients with VF, however, spontaneous type 1 ECG is undetectable, even in repeated ECG and immediately after VF. This study investigated differences between BrS patients with spontaneous or drug-induced type 1 ECG. Read More

Front Cardiovasc Med 2018 18;5:184. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Leon H. Charney Division of Cardiology, NYU School of Medicine, New York, NY, United States.

Plakophilin-2 (PKP2) is a component of the desmosome complex and known for its role in cell-cell adhesion. Recently, alterations in the gene have been associated with different inherited cardiac conditions including Arrythmogenic Cardiomyopathy (ACM or ARVC), Brugada syndrome (BrS), and idiopathic ventricular fibrillation to name the most relevant. However, the assessment of pathogenicity regarding the genetic variations associated with is still a challenging task: the gene has a positive Residual Variation Intolerance Score and the potential deleterious role of several of its variants has been disputed.

Electrophysiological Basis for Early Repolarization Syndrome.

Front Cardiovasc Med 2018 6;5:161. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

Heart Rhythm Management Centre, Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium.

During last centuries, Early Repolarization pattern has been interpreted as an ECG manifestation not linked to serious cardiovascular events. This view has been challenged on the basis of sporadic clinical observations that linked the J-wave with ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. The particular role of this characteristic pattern in initiating ventricular fibrillation has been sustained by clinical descriptions of a marked and consistent J-wave elevation preceding the onset of the ventricular arrhythmia.

Mechanisms Underlying the Actions of Antidepressant and Antipsychotic Drugs That Cause Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

Arrhythm Electrophysiol Rev 2018 Aug;7(3):199-209

Lankenau Institute for Medical Research Wynnewood, PA, USA.

A number of antipsychotic and antidepressant drugs are known to increase the risk of ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. Based largely on a concern over the development of life-threatening arrhythmias, a number of antipsychotic drugs have been temporarily or permanently withdrawn from the market or their use restricted. While many antidepressants and antipsychotics have been linked to QT prolongation and the development of torsade de pointes arrhythmias, some have been associated with a Brugada syndrome phenotype and the development of polymorphic ventricular arrhythmias.

Sudden cardiac arrest in patients without overt heart disease: a limited value of next generation sequencing.

Pol Arch Intern Med 2018 12 7;128(12):721-730. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

INTRODUCTION Unexplained sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), occurs in up to 10% of patients and is often attributed to an inherited arrhythmia syndrome. Family screening and genetic testing may help clarify the cause of unexplained SCA. OBJECTIVES We aimed to assess the usefulness of clinical evaluation and genetic testing in patients after unexplained SCA and in their families. Read More

Brugada Syndrome: anaesthetic considerations and management algorithm.

Minerva Anestesiol 2018 Oct 30. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Pediatric Arrhythmia Unit, Department of Cardiology, Sant Joan de Déu Hospital, Barcelona, Spain.

Brugada syndrome is characterized by arrhythmogenic risk that may be exacerbated by different metabolic and pharmacological factors. Since its first description, knowledge of this syndrome and its detection by physicians belonging to different specialties have gradually increased. The risk of arrhythmias is well known to increase in the postoperative period, and this risk is particularly accentuated in patients with Brugada syndrome. Read More

Use of microminipigs for unveiling unknown mechanisms of azithromycin-induced cardiovascular death.

J Pharmacol Sci 2018 Nov 17;138(3):198-202. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Department of Pharmacology, Toho University Graduate School of Medicine, 5-21-16 Omori-nishi, Ota-ku, Tokyo, 143-8540, Japan; Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Medicine, Toho University, 5-21-16 Omori-nishi, Ota-ku, Tokyo, 143-8540, Japan. Electronic address:

Although azithromycin can suppress cardiac I, I, I, I and I, its onset mechanisms for cardiovascular death have not been fully investigated. We examined electropharmacological effects of azithromycin in intravenous doses of 0.3, 3 and 30 mg/kg using microminipigs under the halothane anesthesia (n = 4), which provided plasma concentrations of 3.

Brugada Syndrome Manifesting Only During Fever in Patient with Septic Shock Secondary to Post-Obstructive Pneumonia.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Nov 3;19:1311-1316. Epub 2018 Nov 3.

Department of Cardiology, Camden Clark Medical Center, Parkersburg, WV, USA.

BACKGROUND Brugada syndrome is a cardiac disorder associated with sudden death due to sodium channelopathy, most commonly the SCN5a mutation. There are 3 different patterns of electrocardiogram (ECG) changes characterized as type I, II, and III. ECG patterns consist of variations of incomplete RBBB and ST elevation in anterior precordial leads only. Read More

Channelopathies That Lead to Sudden Cardiac Death: Clinical and Genetic Aspects.

Heart Lung Circ 2019 Jan 4;28(1):22-30. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Heart Centre AMC, Department of Clinical and Experimental Cardiology, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York, NY, USA.

Forty per cent (40%) of sudden unexpected natural deaths in people under 35 years of age are associated with a negative autopsy, and the cardiac ion channelopathies are the prime suspects in such cases. Long QT syndrome (LQTS), Brugada syndrome (BrS) and catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) are the most commonly identified with genetic testing. The cellular action potential driving the heart cycle is shaped by a specific series of depolarising and repolarising ion currents mediated by ion channels. Read More

Efficacy of Endocardial Ablation of Drug-Resistant Ventricular Fibrillation in Brugada Syndrome.

Circ Arrhythm Electrophysiol 2018 Aug;11(8):e005631

Cardiovascular Division, Faculty of Medicine, Tsukuba University, Ibaraki, Japan (A.K.T., S.A., E.S., Y.K., K.K., T.K., X.D., K.T., M.I., H.Y., N.M., Y.S., A.N., K.A.).

Background Both endocardial trigger elimination and epicardial substrate modification are effective in treating ventricular fibrillation (VF) in Brugada syndrome. However, the primary approach and the characteristics of patients who respond to endocardial ablation remain unknown. Methods Among 123 symptomatic Brugada syndrome patients (VF, 63%; syncope, 37%), ablation was performed in 21 VF/electrical storm patients, the majority of whom were resistant to antiarrhythmic drugs.
