About this book


This book delineates the state of the art for the diagnosis and treatment of J wave syndromes and covers basic science, translational and clinical aspects of these syndromes. The J wave syndromes, consisting of Brugada and Early Repolarization Syndromes, have high visibility in cardiovascular medicine. Although experimental evidence for a heightened risk for sudden cardiac death associated with early repolarization was reported at the turn of the century, the clinical impact has not fully appreciated until very recently.

Written by leading experts in their respective fields who have contributed prominently to the literature concerning these topics, J Wave Syndromes: Brugada and Early Repolarization Syndromes resolves existing confusion in the clinical community that has led to inappropriate, ineffective, and frequently over-aggressive treatment. The authors also take time to discuss where future research needs to be directed.
