111年2月23日(三)12:00於3樓和氣會議室舉辦「研究發想會」,由台大醫學院莊志明教授主講「年輕成人及兒童猝死症-focus on SADS(sudden arrhythmia death syndrome)之基因臨床應用」,歡迎有興趣的同仁前往聆聽。

本次講座摘要:
Unexpected sudden cardiac death in the young (SCDY) always brings parents, families, school members and caregivers tremendous grieve over their lost and causes substantial loss of social productivity. According to Caucasian studies, 75% of SCDY is not caused by coronary artery disease. Most of them are caused by inheritable sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS) including long QT Syndrome, short QT Syndrome, Brugada syndrome, arrhythmogenic Right ventricular cardiomyopathy, catecholamine Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia, early repolarization syndrome, and hypertrophy cardiomyopathy. The prevalence of these diseases ranges from 1/1000 to 1/10000. According to 2011 American/European Heart Rhythm guidelines, genetic testing has become one of standard care in clinical practice. For patients, genetic testing can help doctors diagnose, adjust medications and predict prognosis. For family members, genetic testing can early identify the high risk family members and treat them as early as possible or avoid unnecessary anxiety. Many genes have been reported to cause SCDY in Caucasian populations. In this talk, we will talk about the state-of-art genetics in SADS and clinical application.
