Ablation of a life-threatening arrhythmia in a patient with Brugada syndrome
Brugada syndrome is an autosomal dominant arrhythmogenic disease associated with an increased risk of ventricular fibrillation and sudden cardiac death. The mainstay of treatment in high-risk patients is an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), however radiofrequency ablation has been proposed over the past decade as an additional therapy in patients with recurrent ICD firing.
We report a case of Brugada syndrome with an electrical storm which was successfully managed by radiofrequency ablation.
