Answer

Patients with Brugada syndrome are prone to develop ventricular tachyarrhythmias that may lead to syncope, cardiac arrest, or sudden cardiac death. [10, 11, 12] Infrahisian conduction delay and atrial fibrillation may also be manifestations of the syndrome. [13, 14]

About 5% of survivors of cardiac arrest have no clinically identified cardiac abnormality. About half of these cases are thought to be due to Brugada syndrome. [15]
