Brugada syndrome was first described in 1992 as right precordial ST-segment elevation in patients with structurally normal hearts and sudden cardiac death. Brugada Syndrome is one of the most common reasons for sudden cardiac death (4-12%) and is a hereditary disease
with an autosomal dominant pattern of transmission with nearly 300 pathogenic variants in 19 responsible genes published. The present review focuses on the diagnosis, genetics, risk stratification, and management of patients with Brugada Syndrome.
