Answer

To date, the only treatment that has proven effective in treating ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation and preventing sudden death in patients with Brugada syndrome is implantation of an automatic implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD). [18] Radiofrequency catheter ablation has been recently reported as an effective new treatment. [3, 4, 5, 6, 7] No pharmacologic therapy has been proved to reduce the occurrence of ventricular arrhythmias or sudden death.
