Celebrating the challenge of cardiac arrhythmias

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The field of cardiac arrhythmias has matured dramatically over the past 15 years, initially spurred on by the studies performed on the genetics of arrhythmia disorders. Once the genetic basis of disorders such as the long QT syndrome (LQTS) and Brugada syndrome (BrS) was discovered to occur due to disruption in ion channel encoding genes, basic electrophysiologists joined the fray, opening up a new area of study with significant clinical relevance. This book is a result of such bedside-to-bench collaboration.
