Abstract

This article outlines the up-to-date understanding of the molecular basis of disorders that cause sudden death. Several arrhythmic disorders that cause sudden death have been well-described at the molecular level, including the long QT syndromes and Brugada syndrome; this article reviews the current scientific knowledge of these diseases. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a myocardial disorder that causes sudden death also has been well-studied. Finally, a disorder in which myocardial abnormalities and rhythm abnormalities coexist, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, is described.
