Factors linked with increased risk of cardiac arrest for adolescents with certain heart condition

risk for a life-threatening event; those with 2 or more syncopal episodes in the last 2 years had about 18 times the risk. Among individuals with syncope in the past 2 years, -blocker therapy was associated with a 64 percent reduced risk.

"In summary, we identified 3 important factors for estimating the risk of life-threatening events in adolescent patients with suspected LQTS: timing and frequency of recent syncope, the duration of the QTc interval, and sex. This clinically oriented risk-stratification approach might serve as a useful guide for prophylactic treatment decisions to reduce the risk of sudden death in patients with LQTS during the high-risk teenage years," the authors write.
