Ischemia-induced Brugada phenocopy
Letter to the Editor
Journal of Electrocardiology
A 65-year-old man with history of schizoaffective disorder was admitted with a suspicion for syncope. ECG changes consistent with type-1 Brugada pattern were noted on admission. A personal history of angina was reported buta family history of sudden cardiac death or ICD implantation was denied. A fixed perfusion defect and hypokinesis of the distal infero-lateral wall were reported on a pharmacological stress test prompting a coronary angiography. A stent was deployed across a 95% stenosis of the dominant mid right coronary artery with satisfactory results. Resolution of the Brugada type pattern was noted on ECGs repeated after the stenting.
