1,332 Possible Causes for Risk of Sudden Death

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Patients were judged to be at high risk for sudden death; had received ICDs; underwent evaluation at 42 referral and nonreferral institutions in the United States, Europe,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In 2% of patients, a concomitant left ventricular apical aneurysm is observed, which increases the risk of sudden death and adverse HCM-related events.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical risk stratification is used to estimate the risk of sudden death and to target effective prophylactic treatment with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sudden Cardiac Death

    The risk of sudden cardiac death was proportional to the number of metabolic syndrome components. 2017 The Authors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The lifetime risk of sudden cardiac death at 30years of age is higher by 30% in individuals with hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] sudden death.[nejm.org]

  • Brugada Syndrome

    Future studies should be more directed on modulating factors and their impact on patients' risk for sudden death to help physicians in risk stratifying their patients and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These observations have important implication for identification of patients at risk for sudden death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The role of programmed ventricular stimulation in identifying patients with Brugada syndrome at the highest risk for sudden death is uncertain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nonsustained Ventricular Tachycardia

    Abstract Patients with coronary artery disease, nonsustained ventricular tachycardia (VT), and left ventricular dysfunction have an increased risk for sudden cardiac death[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Many physicians believe that electrocardiographic characteristics of nonsustained ventricular tachycardia correlate with the risk for sudden death in survivors[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] AIMS: Stratifying risk of sudden death is a major issue in the management of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

    To test whether alcohol is a risk factor for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract This article reviews updated advice and factual material from the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare on reducing the risk of sudden infant death syndrome[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sharing a bed with your baby increases the risk of sudden infant death syndrome, UK study shows Advice to mothers that it is safe to sleep with their babies should be reconsidered[doi.org]

  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

    Here we report a Chinese kindred of WPW syndrome whose unique clinical features consist of a high risk of sudden cardiac death due to atrial fibrillation, causing a rapid[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] So we know that, as in this example, there is a 0.6% risk of sudden death in a certain population of WPW patients at risk.[doctorslounge.com] Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome and the Risk of Sudden Cardiac Death. Doctors Lounge Website. Available at: . Accessed October 10 2010.[web.archive.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    However, there is a small subset of patients who are at increased risk of sudden premature death.[barnesjewish.org] […] cardiac death Clinical risk assessment Models for estimating sudden cardiac death Prevention of sudden cardiac death Risk of sudden death in children Symptomatic bradycardia[escardio.org] People with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are at higher risk for sudden death than people without the condition. Sudden death can occur at a young age.[medlineplus.gov]

  • Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia

    In most cases, ARVD is inherited in an autosomal-dominant pattern and clinically is characterized by ventricular arrhythmias with an increased risk of sudden death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] From a treatment perspective, placement of ICDs in specific subsets of patients with ARVD/C who are at increased risk of sudden death is important.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of sudden death and pathologically by fibrofatty replacement of the myocardium.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Common Cold

    […] of death due to sudden airway obstruction and other complications, including septic arthritis, meningitis, empyema, and mediastinitis.[emedicine.com] Orbital cellulitis Subperiosteal abscess Orbital abscess Frontal and maxillary osteomyelitis Subdural abscess Meningitis Brain abscess Epiglottitis Epiglottitis poses a risk[emedicine.com]

  • Ventricular Arrhythmia

    None of these groups had an increase in the risk of sudden death from cardiac causes.[dx.doi.org] […] of sudden death from ventricular fibrillation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nevertheless, high-intensity exercise is associated to a higher risk for sudden death, even in apparently healthy people.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
