Marijuana is the most common drug of abuse in the United States. Marijuana acts on cannabinoid receptors CB1, CB2 and another distinct endothelial receptor. Marijuana is known to cause tachycardia, hypotension and hypertension. Various arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, II degree AV block, ventricular fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, asystole and brugada pattern associated with marijuana use have been reported. We here present an interesting case of Type I Brugada pattern in electrocardiography (ECG) in a 36 year old healthy African American male who presented after smoking four joints...

KCNE5 is an X-linked gene encoding KCNE5, an ancillary subunit to voltage-gated potassium (KV ) channels. Human KCNE5 mutations are associated with atrial fibrillation (AF)- and Brugada syndrome (BrS)-induced cardiac arrhythmias that can arise from increased potassium current in cardiomyocytes. Seeking to establish underlying molecular mechanisms, we created and studied Kcne5 knockout ( Kcne5-/0 ) mice. Intracardiac ECG revealed that Kcne5 deletion caused ventricular premature beats, increased susceptibility to induction of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (60 vs...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The resting 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) has been used in the evaluation of young asymptomatic individuals to detect pre-existing heart disease, but systematic ECG use is controversial and there are no data on this population in our environment. We aimed to determine the prevalence and spectrum of electrocardiographic findings in a population of secondary school students. METHODS: We conducted an observational, cross-sectional study of resting ECG findings in all 13 to 14-year-old secondary school students in a region of the province of Gerona between 2009 and 2017...

Brugada syndrome is typically an autosomal dominant genetic disorder with variable expression, characterized by three specific electrocardiogram (ECG) patterns. While Type I Brugada ECG pattern is used as a classic marker for the disease, it is generally masked from ECG except in special cases such as malaria-induced fever. This vignette highlights a unique clinical scenario that can lead to the unmasking of Brugada type 1 pattern. < Learning objective: Brugada syndrome is associated with ventricular arrhythmias which if left untreated can result in syncope or premature death...

BACKGROUND: A spontaneous coved-type ST segment elevation in the electrocardiogram (ECG) has long been recognized as a risk stratification tool in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS). This Type-I ST segment elevation is known to exhibit high dynamicity, fluctuating between coved-type and non-coved ST segment elevation. Our objectives in this study were to: 1) Compare ECG parameters in patients with spontaneous coved-type (Type-I) vs. non-coved-type ST segment ECGs; 2) Determine the variability of these ECG parameters with repeated measurements; and 3) Assess the predictive value of ECG parameters in these two groups during follow-up...

A 50-year-old woman visited the emergency department with a high fever due to pneumonia. Incessant monomorphic ventricular tachycardia occurred and was terminated by intravenous lidocaine. Her ECG during sinus rhythm demonstrated ST segment elevation suggestive of Brugada syndrome (BS). An intensive examination could not detect any structural disease, and typical coved-type ST elevation was unmasked by a pilsicainide injection leading to a diagnosis of BS. An ICD was implanted for secondary prevention of ventricular arrhythmia...

The Brugada syndrome (BrS) is characterized by coved-type ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads on the electrocardiogram (ECG) and increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). While it is an inheritable disease, determining the true prevalence is a challenge, since patients may report no known family history of the syndrome, present with a normal spontaneous ECG pattern at the time of examination, and test negative for all known BrS-causative genes. In fact, SCD is often the first indication that a person is affected by the syndrome...

BACKGROUND: The second-generation cryoballoon (CB) is effective in achieving pulmonary vein isolation. Continuous monitoring would eliminate any over- or underestimated freedom from atrial fibrillation (AF) postablation. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to differentiate between arrhythmias occurring after cryoballoon ablation (CBA), detecting true AF in symptomatic patients and detecting silent subclinical AF. METHODS: Between June 2012 and January 2015, 54 patients with a preexisting cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) who had undergone CBA for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) were included in our retrospective study...

INTRODUCTION: Reliable markers to predict sudden cardiac death (SCD) in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) remain elusive, but echocardiogram (ECG) parameters may help stratify patients. Given their roles as markers for myocardial dispersion especially in high risk populations such as those with Brugada syndrome, we hypothesized that the Tpeak to Tend (TpTe) interval and TpTe/QT are independent risk factors for SCD in ESRD. METHODS: Retrospective chart review was conducted on a cohort of patients with ESRD starting hemodialysis...

Brugada syndrome (BS) is an inherited cardiac ion channelopathy that is a rare, but treatable, cause of sudden cardiac death (SCD). There are many studies that explore the management of symptomatic BS, but few trials have been conducted regarding management of asymptomatic Brugada patients. Asymptomatic BS patients are shown to be at increased risk (0.5%-1.5%) for SCD compared to the general population and account for nearly 20% of deaths from SCD in patients with structurally normal hearts. Treatment for asymptomatic BS patients is often debated with the current guidelines allowing for management decisions to be made on a case-by-case basis...

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), is a heritable condition that is an important, and under-recognized cause of sudden cardiac death. Microscopically, it is represented by fibrofatty replacement of myocardium involving the right ventricular inflow area, apex, and infundibulum. Common clinical manifestations of ARVC include palpitations, syncope, chest pain, dyspnea, and sudden cardiac death. This is a case of a 25-year-old male with a history of thalassemia, and tonic-clonic seizure status post head trauma with cystic encephalomalacia in left parietal lobe who described recurrent syncope...

Brugada syndrome (BrS) is an inherited channelopathy disease, caused by genetic changes in transmembrane ion channels. It has an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in the absence of a structural heart disease. We report a case in which the presenting electrocardiogram (EKG) exhibited a type 1 Brugada-like pattern during an adrenal crisis with transformation into a type 2 Brugada-like pattern as the crisis improved.

Introduction: A previous genome-wide association study found three genetic loci, rs9388451, rs10428132, and rs11708996, to increase the risk of Brugada Syndrome (BrS). Since the effect of these loci in the general population is unknown, we aimed to investigate the effect on electrocardiogram (ECG) parameters and outcomes in the general population. Materials and Methods: A cohort of 6,161 individuals (median age 45 [interquartile range (IQR) 40-50] years, 49% males), with available digital ECGs, was genotyped and subsequently followed for a median period of 13 [IQR 12...

Brugada syndrome (BrS) is an inherited disease associated with ST elevation in the right precordial leads, polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (PVT), and sudden cardiac death in adults. Mutations in the cardiac sodium channel account for a large fraction of BrS cases. BrS manifests in the right ventricle (RV), which led us to examine the biophysical and molecular properties of sodium channel in myocytes isolated from the left (LV) and right ventricle. Patch clamp was used to record sodium current (INa ) in single canine RV and LV epicardial (epi) and endocardial (endo) myocytes...

INTRODUCTION: Mutations within SCN5A are found in a significant proportion (15-30%) of Brugada syndrome (BrS) cases and impair sodium transport across excitable cardiac cells that mediate ventricular contractions. Genetic testing offers a means to clinically assess and manage affected individuals and their family members. METHODS AND RESULTS: The proband at age 44 years old exhibited a syncopal event during exercise, and presented later with a spontaneous type-I BrS pattern on 12‑lead resting electrocardiogram (ECG)...
