Abstract

Inherited cardiac channelopathies are frequent causes of arrhythmogenic syncope and sudden cardiac death in young adults. When timely diagnosed and treated properly, they can be well controlled with anti-arrhythmic therapy and ICDs. Adequate risk stratification is crucial in the management of these diseases. As the individual arrhythmogenic risk can change over time, regular follow-ups are indicated. An increasing understanding of the genetic and pathophysiologic mechanisms of these diseases leads to the development of more targeted (mechanism-based) therapies.
