Background Reports on the incidence and causes of sudden cardiac death among young athletes have relied largely on estimated rates of participation and varied methods of reporting. We sought to investigate the incidence and causes of sudden cardiac death among adolescent soccer players in the United Kingdom. Methods From 1996 through 2016, we screened 11,168 adolescent athletes with a mean (±SD) age of 16.4±1.2 years (95% of whom were male) in the English Football Association (FA) cardiac screening progra...
Recent lines of evidence suggest that, as in other countries, sudden cardiac death (SCD) is more common in the Japanese dialysis clinical setting than we previously thought.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a primary cardiac disease characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy, myocyte hypertrophy and irregularities and interstitial fibrosis in the absence of any cardiac or systemic diseases and may lead to sudden cardiac death (SCD). Galectin-3 is a β-galactoside-binding lectin that has been associated with cardiac fibrosis and inflammation. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between serum galectin-3 levels and the criteria for 5-year sudden death risk, re...
Cardiac-related diseases contributed approximately 50-60% of sudden natural death cases. This study aimed to describe the cardiac troponin T (cTnT) findings in post mortem subjects irrespective of the cause and manner of death, and the possible use of post mortem serum cTnT as a modality in investigating sudden natural death.
Unexplained sudden cardiac death (SCD) may be attributable to cardiogenetic disease. Presence or absence of autopsy anomalies detected following premature sudden death direct appropriate clinical evaluation of at-risk relatives towards inherited cardiomyopathies or primary arrhythmia syndromes, respectively. We investigated the relevance of non-diagnostic pathological abnormalities of indeterminate causality (uncertain) such as myocardial hypertrophy, fibrosis, or inflammatory infiltrates to SCD.
Although the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular conditions have significantly improved over the past decade, whether they have reduced the incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD) is not known. We sought to evaluate the temporal trends of SCD in a large unselected population.
Cases of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in young and apparently healthy individuals represent a devastating event in affected families. Hereditary arrhythmia syndromes, which include primary electrical heart disorders as well as cardiomyopathies, are known to contribute to a significant number of these sudden death cases. We performed postmortem genetic analyses in young sudden death cases (aged
The authors report for the first time a novel mutation in the FLNC gene associated with cardiac arrhythmias in two half-siblings. The FLNC gene on chromosome 7q32 encodes filamin C, which stabilizes the actin network within the cardiomyocyte. The proband is an 8-year-old asymptomatic patient with frequent premature ventricular contractions noted on serial monitoring. Interestingly, the proband and his half-brother harbored a heterozygous 13 base pair deletion that resulted in a frameshift mutation and intro...
The new European Society of Cardiology guidelines for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) define the estimation of sudden cardiac death (SCD) risk as an integral part of clinical management. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is recommended (class IIa) when the risk is ≥ 6%.
The article covers the development of the problem of sudden cardiac death prevention with the implantable cardioverter-defibrillators from the moment of creation of these devices to our days. The current concept of primary prevention of sudden cardiac death, based on the severity of manifestation of heart failure and left ventricular dysfunction, is not effective enough. Its practical application is difficult because it requires mass application of implantable defibrillators, with low predictive accuracy of...
Sudden infant death syndrome is the leading cause of death during the first year of life. A large part of cases remains without a conclusive cause of death after complete autopsy. In these situations, cardiac arrhythmia of genetic origin is suspected as the most plausible cause of death. Our aim was to ascertain whether genetic variants associated with sudden cardiac death might be the cause of death in a cohort of infants died suddenly. We analyzed 108 genes associated with sudden cardiac death in 44 post-...
Assessment of the relationship between the ambulatory electrocardiography-based micro T-wave alternans and the predicted risk score of sudden cardiac death at 5 years in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Micro T-wave alternans (MTWA) has been associated with poor arrhythmic prognosis in various cardiac disorders. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between the presence of MTWA and the predicted 5-year risk of sudden cardiac death (HCM Risk-SCD) among patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM).
Sudden death of young athletes is often the first clinical manifestation of underlying cardiac pathology. It is defined as an unexpected natural, non traumatic and non iatrogenic event. International screening policies and recommendations to avoid sudden cardiac death vary considerably. Certain studies suggest a benefit from systematic screening of young adults (12‑35 years old) engaging in sports. We chose to evaluate the current approach to screening for lethal pathologies in athletes in Geneva, as well...
Sleep duration has been shown to be associated with all-cause mortality, however its relationship with cause-specific fatal events remains uncertain. We examined the relationship between sleep duration and risk of fatal coronary heart disease (CHD), sudden cardiac death, cancer related death and all-cause mortality.
To study the epidemiological and pathological features of sudden death （SD） in Yunnan Province and to provide scientific evidence for prevention and forensic identification of sudden death.
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the leading cause of death in young athletes during sports.
To summarise and synthesise the current evidence regarding the effectiveness of drug interventions to prevent sudden cardiac death (SCD) and all-cause mortality in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).
Reliable markers to predict sudden cardiac death (SCD) in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) remain elusive, but echocardiogram (ECG) parameters may help stratify patients. Given their roles as markers for myocardial dispersion especially in high risk populations such as those with Brugada syndrome, we hypothesized that the Tpeak to Tend (TpTe) interval and TpTe/QT are independent risk factors for SCD in ESRD.
Mortality in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) occurs predominantly from cardiovascular disease (CVD) and sudden cardiac death (SCD). Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by periodic airflow limitation associated with sleep arousal and oxygen desaturation and is prevalent in patients with ESRD. Whether OSA increases the risk for SCD, cardiovascular and all-cause mortality among hemodialysis patients remains unknown.
Sudden death is an important but under-recognized consequence of stroke. Acute stroke can disturb central control of autonomic function, and result in cardiac dysfunction and sudden death. Previous study showed that bilateral common carotid artery ligation (BCCAL) in spontaneously hypertensive stroke-prone rats (SHRSP) is a well-established model for forebrain ischemic sudden death. This study aims to investigate the temporal dynamic changes in electrical activities of the brain and heart and functional int...
Background Short QT syndrome ( SQTS ) is a rare inheritable disease associated with sudden cardiac death. Data on long-term outcomes of families with SQTS are limited. Methods and Results Seventeen patients with SQTS in 7 independent families (48% men; median age, 42.4 years; corrected QT interval, 324.9±40.8 ms) were followed up for 13.5±2.5 years. A history of sudden cardiac death was documented in 71% of families. A large number of them showed sudden cardiac deaths at a younger age, with a predomina...
Biomarkers have shown promising results in risk assessment of cardiovascular events. Their role in predicting the risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) is not well established. We tested the performance of several biomarkers in risk assessment for SCD in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and preserved left ventricular function.
The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) is a new device used for the prevention of sudden cardiac death. Best practices in the perioperative management of the S-ICD are not established; therefore, clinicians typically deactivate the device during surgery, with reinterrogation and activation postoperatively. This could put the patient at risk for being discharged with the device "off." We present two cases where electromagnetic interference was appropriately detected by the S-ICD and ...
Sudden Unexpected Infant Deaths (SUID) is defined as a combination of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Unknown Cause of Death (UCD) and Accidental Suffocation and Strangulation in Bed (ASSB). Overall rates from 2000 to 2015 have been trending down. Racial differences in occurrence are seen.
We aimed to describe families with genetic epilepsy with febrile seizures plus (GEFS+) in which individuals suffered sudden unexpected death. The Epilepsy Pharmacogenomics Research Database was reviewed for GEFS + families in which at least one individual had suffered sudden death, and two families were identified. In Family A, five males had febrile seizures and one girl had febrile seizures plus. The latter died at 22 months of age and was classified as definite SUDEP. Molecular genetic testing identi...
