Several genes and chromosomal loci have been identified for rare arrhythmias such as Brugada Syndrome, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, long QT syndrome, etc.
Other indications included aborted SCD, long QT syndrome with family history of SCD, hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy with family history of SCD, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, recurrent syncope, bradycardia, and refractory paroxysmal atrial flutter.
A third type of known irregularity is arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD), in which fatty tissue has replaced normal heart muscle.
The third type is so rare that we don't discuss it much and the final type is arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, a rare disorder which damages the right side of the heart.
For example, in young athletes (younger than 35 years) the vast majority of sudden deaths are due to underlying cardiovascular abnormalities including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, congenital coronary anomalies and arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD).
