Clinical Approach to Sudden Cardiac Death Syndromes

Clinical cardiologists are encountering an important challenge in the care of families with inherited cardiac diseases. The majority of the inherited cardiac diseases causing sudden death express themselves at variable ages in the form of altered muscle function – for instance hypertrophic or dilate...
