An electrocardiogram showed that her initial rhythm was atypical atrial flutter with an excessively wide QRS complex of 280 milliseconds, and QRS morphology (lead aVR) was suggestive of potential flecainide
toxicity (Figure 1a).
Previous studies demonstrated that elimination of the arrhythmogenic substrate associated with disappearance of the Brugada ECG pattern as confirmed by flecainide
testing indicates successful outcome [2, 7].
In this study, we evaluate the efficacy of carvedilol and flecainide
in abolishing [Ca.sup.2+] abnormalities in CPVT patient-specific hiPSC-derived CMs carrying different mutations in RYR2.
A negative test does not rule out the presence of a latent Brugada Syndrome, since a previous study showed that flecainide
testing has 77% sensibility and 80% specificity .
