Brugada Syndrome (BrS) is a channelopathy that can also cause dangerous ventricular arrhythmias. Patients with BrS can have an abnormal pattern on their ECG.
The genetic changes that cause some channelopathies may guide your physician to choose one specific medication. If a known disease-causing genetic mutation (change in the gene’s sequence or pattern) is found in a patient, it can help direct future testing in other family members to determine their risk of developing the disease.
Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is an abnormality of the heart’s electrical conduction system which can be associated with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT).
