Prediction of sudden and non-sudden cardiac death in post-infarction patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction by periodic repolarization dynamics: MADIT-II substudy.

To test the value of Periodic Repolarization Dynamics (PRD), a recently validated electrocardiographic marker of sympathetic activity, as a novel approach to predict sudden cardiac death (SCD) and non...

Association of Polymorphism in SCN5A, GJA5, and KCNN3 Gene with Sudden Cardiac Death.

We studied association of single-nucleotide SCN5A (rs1805124), GJA5 (rs35594137), and KCNN3 (rs13376333) polymorphisms and sudden cardiac death. Humans died suddenly from cardiac causes (N=379) and un...

Cardiovascular causes of maternal sudden death. Sudden arrhythmic death syndrome is leading cause in UK.

This study aims to determine the causes of sudden cardiac death during pregnancy and in the postpartum period and patients' characteristics. There are few studies in the literature.

Sudden cardiac death and sarcoidosis of the heart in a young patient.

Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disease of unknown etiology affecting any organ, microscopically characterized by noncaseating granulomata. Cardiac involvement in sarcoidosis has been reported. It migh...

Prediction of sudden cardiac death in patients with chronic heart failure by regional washout rate in cardiac MIBG SPECT imaging.

The sympathetic nervous system provides an important trigger for major arrhythmic events through regional heterogeneity of sympathetic activity, which could be evaluated by SPECT imaging as the region...

Sudden death is a major problem in industrially developed countries. Despite a decline in ischemic heart disease mortality and the progress has been made in resuscitation, treatment of sud...

Imaging Techniques for Identifying Factors of Sudden Cardiac Death Risk

Sudden cardiac death is a tragic event that strikes all age groups and is unfortunately increasing in prevalence. Because it is difficult to predict those at highest risk, this study is d...

Genetic Determinants of Sudden Cardiac Death

To evaluate whether sequence variants and selected cardiac ion channel genes are associated with risk of sudden cardiac death in the general population.

Evaluating the Genetic Factors That May Lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (The GenSCA Study)

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a sudden, unexpected loss of heart function. It is a leading cause of death, and more than 400,000 people in the United States die each year as a result of S...

Quantitive LGE Mass in Prediction of SCD in NICM Patients With Severe Cardiac Dysfunction

The purpose of this study is to establish a quantitative LGE mass based scoring system (including LGE mass on cardiac magnetic resonance , clinical features, specific medical histories, et...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)

Inflammatory processes of the muscular walls of the heart (MYOCARDIUM) which result in injury to the cardiac muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Manifestations range from subclinical to sudden death (DEATH, SUDDEN). Myocarditis in association with cardiac dysfunction is classified as inflammatory CARDIOMYOPATHY usually caused by INFECTION, autoimmune diseases, or responses to toxic substances. Myocarditis is also a common cause of DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY and other cardiomyopathies.

A sudden CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA (e.g., VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION) caused by a blunt, non-penetrating impact to the precordial region of chest wall. Commotio cordis often results in sudden death without prompt cardiopulmonary defibrillation.

Autosomal dominant syndrome characterized by cardiac and cutaneous MYXOMAS; LENTIGINOSIS (spotty pigmentation of the skin), and endocrinopathy and its associated endocrine tumors. The cardiac myxomas may lead to SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH and other complications in Carney complex patients. The gene coding for the PRKAR1A protein is one of the causative genetic loci (type 1). A second locus is at chromosome 2p16 (type 2).

An autosomal dominant defect of cardiac conduction that is characterized by an abnormal ST-segment in leads V1-V3 on the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM resembling a right BUNDLE-BRANCH BLOCK; high risk of VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA; or VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION; SYNCOPAL EPISODE; and possible sudden death. This syndrome is linked to mutations of gene encoding the cardiac SODIUM CHANNEL alpha subunit.
