Testing and Family Screening Lacking Among Young Victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest

PARIS, FRANCE--Less than 4% of relatives of young cardiac arrest victims receive information on family screening that could prevent further deaths, according to research presented today at ESC Congress 2019 together with the World Congress of Cardiology. (1)

“When a patient under 45 dies from sudden cardiac arrest, the probability of an inherited cardiac disease is highly likely and accurately identifying the cause is crucial for relatives,” said study author Dr Ardalan Sharifzadehgan of the Paris Sudden Death Expertise Centre (Paris-SDEC), France.
