Sudden cardiac death in patients with myocarditis: Evaluation, risk stratification, and management

American Heart Journal

Fatima Ali-AhmedSana M Al-Khatib

Abstract

Myocarditis is a major cause of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in young adults. Cardiac magnetic resonance is the established tool for the diagnosis of myocarditis, and late gadolinium enhancement detected on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is the stronge...read more

Heart Rhythm & Arrythmias

Heart arrhythmias, also known as irregular heartbeat or cardiac dysrhythmia, are a group of conditions where the heartbeat is irregular (dysrhythmia), too slow (bradycardia), or too fast (tachycardia). Discover the latest research on heart rhythm and arrythmias here.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Heart Transplantation

Heart transplantation is a surgical means of replacing a recipient's heart with a healthier organ. Find the latest research in heart transplantation here.

Anti-Arrhythmic Drug Therapies

Anti-arrhythmic drugs are used to prevent abnormal heart rhythms. These medications are used in conditions including, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation and atrial fibrillation. Discover the latest research on anti-arrhythmic drug therapies here.

Myocarditis

Myocarditis is an acute or chronic inflammatory disease of the myocardium which can be viral, postinfectious immune or primarily organ-specific autoimmune. Discover the latest research on myocarditis here.

Antiarrhythmic Agents: Mechanisms of Action

Understanding the mechanism of action of antiarrhythmic agents is essential in developing new medications as treatment of cardiac arrhythmias is currently limited by the reduced availability of safe and effective drugs. Discover the latest research on Antiarrhythmic Agents: Mechanism of Action here.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
