Abstract

We are reporting on a 53 year old man with proven Brugada syndrome and ICD implantation for resuscitation in context of polymorphic VT. After recurrent arrhythmia he was treated with Amiodarone. This showed to have a protective effect despite various reports suggesting avoiding Amiodarone in Brugada syndrome.
