Suppression of recurrent electrical storms with Quinidine in a Filipino patient with Brugada Syndrome: a case report.

See More

Brugada Syndrome is an inherited form of arrythmogenic disease associated with a coved-type
ST-segment elevation in right precordial leads and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) due to ventricular fibrillation (VF) in young and otherwise healthy adults. Electrical storm is malignant but is rare in patients with Brugada Syndrome. We describe a patient who was diagnosed with Brugada Syndrome with repetitive discharges of ICD during episodes of ventricular  tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation. The patient was given oral quinidine, which successfully suppressed the recurrence of electrical storms.
