Abstract

Ion channelopathies are a frequent cause of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in patients with structurally normal hearts. These are generally Mendelian inherited electrical disorders with variable penetrance and expressivity. The ability to predict the development of life threatening arrhythmias in these patients is challenging. This chapter will present an update on the genetics, the role of genetic testing, and management of the inherited cardiac channelopathies with a focus on the relatively more common syndromes associated with an increased risk of SCD.
