Resumen

ASENJO G, René et al. Sudden death due to ventricular fibrillation: A case of Brugada syndrome?. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 1998, vol.126, n.7, pp.814-821. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98871998000700009.

We report a 47 years old male who was recuperated from a sudden death, and in whom the cardiological assessment showed a right bundle branch block and a fluctuating ST segment elevation from V1 to V3. During the electrophysiological study, a polymorphic tachycardia and a ventricular fibrillation were induced. Procainamide administration enhanced ST segment alterations in right precordial leads, and isoproterenol normalized the EKG. All these disturbances are similar to the condition described by Brugada brothers. The patient was treated with an internal implantable defibrillator, without the use of antiarrhythmic drugs and is well after four months of follow up.
