(redirected from Brugada)

Brugada syndrome

A family of autosomal dominant conditions which manifest themselves in young individuals—especially from southeast Asia—with no known heart problems or defects, who suffer sudden cardiac death or aborted sudden cardiac death.
 
EKG
Right bundle branch block; persistent ST-segment elevation in V1 to V3, unexplained by electrolyte disturbances; ischaemia; structural heart disease.
 
Management
Implantable defibrillator.
