Primary prevention of sudden cardiac death in "true electrical" heart diseases

In patients with "true electrical" phenomena, in which the likelihood of sudden cardiac death increases, the expediency of primary prophylaxis raises much less doubt and discussion than in patients with coronary artery disease complicated by ventricular arrhythmias.

Primary prevention of sudden cardiac death in "true electrical" heart diseases

  1. Prevention of sudden cardiac death in the "sports heart"
    The abnormalities of the cardiovascular system in many athletes consist in increasing the mass of the LV, cavity, wall thickness, or a combination of these factors. The cardiovascular causes of sudden cardiac death in athletes vary significantly with age. At the age of over 35, the predominant cause of death is CHD. Conversely, athletes younger than 35 years old are the main reason
  2. Prevention of sudden cardiac death in disorders of the cardiac conduction system
    Sudden cardiac death can be the result of bradyarrhythmias in 15–20% of cases. If conduction disturbances are caused by an irreversible structural abnormality in patients with conduction disturbances, sudden cardiac death can be caused by ventricular tachyarrhythmia. The driver of the heart rate certainly improves the condition of patients with bradyarrhythmias and can reduce mortality. Recommendations for
  3. Prevention of sudden cardiac death in HCM
    HCM is a common heart disease, the prevalence of which among adults is 1: 500. Sudden unexpected death in this disease is the most terrible consequence that occurs in different periods of life, but especially often at a young age and in patients without symptoms of the disease. The main task of cardiologists is to identify a small
  4. Ways to prevent heart disease, reducing the tendency to the occurrence of sudden cardiac death
    In order to prevent a large contingent of the population, it is necessary to recommend general advice regarding lifestyle (taking into account the cost / benefit ratio of treatment). The greatest opportunity to reduce the number of sudden cardiac death in a population is to reduce the prevalence of CHD. Populations at high risk should be identified separately. Identification and treatment of such
  5. Prevention of sudden cardiac death with DCM
    DCM is a chronic disease of the heart muscle, characterized by dilatation of the LV and deterioration of the systolic function. Epidemiological studies have established that the detection rate is about 20 cases / 100 thousand people per year, the prevalence is 38 cases / 100 thousand people per year. In 40% of cases, a family history is possible with a predominance of autosomal dominant inheritance,
  6. Prevention of sudden cardiac death in patients with arrhythmogenic dysplasia of the pancreas
    Arrhythmogenic dysplasia of the pancreas or right ventricular cardiomyopathy is a myocardial disease characterized by focal or global fibrotic changes in the pancreatic myocardium with or without an increase in LV and with preservation of the thickness of the interventricular septum. The prevalence of this disease is completely unknown, approximately in the range of 1: 1 thousand -1: 10 thousand population. For this pathology is characteristic
  7. Prevention of sudden cardiac death with WPW syndrome
    The prevalence of WPW syndrome is 0.1–0.2%. Its presence can lead to sudden cardiac death. This happens if the paroxysm of atrial fibrillation causes very rapid activation of the ventricles through an additional AV pathway with a short anterograde period of refractoriness and provokes ventricular fibrillation. Sudden cardiac death with WPW syndrome is rare but dramatic.
  8. Prevention of sudden cardiac death in aortic stenosis
    Aortic stenosis may be a congenital abnormality, as well as acquired after an acute rheumatic attack or due to an age-related degenerative process (senile aortic stenosis). Usually, the history of aortic stenosis is characterized by a long asymptomatic period during which the degree of stenosis increases. In 1968, Ross and Braunwald showed that the risk of sudden cardiac death in
  9. Prevention of sudden cardiac death in mitral valve prolapse
    Mitral valve prolapse is a fairly common pathology of valve leaflets, which has fuzzy echo-CG criteria. After clarifying its echoCG criteria, the prevalence of this pathology has noticeably decreased. The latest data from the Framingham study showed that in a non-randomized group of ambulatory patients, the prevalence of mitral valve prolapse was 1-3% at 3491
  10. Prevention of sudden cardiac death in various clinical conditions
    Considering that most cases of sudden cardiac death occur outside the clinics, in which appropriate conditions can be provided for resuscitation, the probability of saving these patients is very low. In addition, even after successful resuscitation, the possibility of a repeated episode of sudden cardiac death throughout the year for those who are not receiving adequate therapy.
  11. Prevention of sudden cardiac death in catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia
    Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia as a clinical syndrome was first described by Kumel in 1978 and more in detail by Lyndhardt in 1995. This disease is characterized by adrenergically induced polymorphic ventricular tachycardia in a structurally normal heart. Patients are usually referred to a cardiologist in connection with the occurrence of syncopal states, family history
  12. Prevention of sudden cardiac death with abnormal coronary artery discharge
    Anomalies of the coronary arteries are rare. The prevalence of these anomalies in the general population is unknown. According to various sources, they are detected in 0.3-1.2% of patients undergoing coronary angiography. The most common coronary anomaly is a. сircumfleha (as a rule, the vessel departs from the right coronary sinus). No adverse events were observed in this group. However, the beginning of the left coronary artery from the right or
