Abstract

Brugada syndrome is a rare channelopathy characterized by an increased risk of sudden cardiac death. Patients with confirmed Brugada pattern and a history of palpitations without major events should be scheduled for risk stratification.

We, therefore, described our flowchart in order to assess his sudden cardiac death risk.
