MARQUEZ, Manlio F. et al. Next generation sequencing for molecular confirmation of hereditary sudden cardiac death syndromes. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2015, vol.85, n.1, pp.68-72. ISSN 1665-1731.

Hereditary sudden cardiac death syndromes comprise a wide range of diseases resulting from alteration in cardiac ion channels. Genes involved in these syndromes represent diverse mutations that cause the altered encoding of the diverse proteins constituting these channels, thus affecting directly the currents of the corresponding ions. In the present article we will briefly review how to arrive to a clinical diagnosis and we will present the results of molecular genetic studies made in Mexican subjects attending the SCD Syndromes Clinic of the National Institute of Cardiology of Mexico City.

Keywords : Arrhythmias; Hereditary sudden cardiac death syndromes; Right ventricle arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy; Brugada syndrome.
