General Anesthetic Management for Patient with Brugada Syndrome: A Case Report
Keywords:Brugada syndrome, Cardiomyopathy, General anesthesia, Tonsillectomy, Ventricular arrhythmia
Brugada syndrome is an arrhythmogenic cardiopathy characterized by electrocardiography (ECG) pattern of the presence of an atypical right bundle branch block pattern with ST segment elevation in the precordial leads (V1-V3). It is sometimes associated with sudden deaths caused by ventricular arrhythmia. Here, we are reporting a case of a 43-year-old male patient with Brugada syndrome who underwent a tonsillectomy under general anesthesia without any complications.
