Not a treatment. : Heart transplantation is not a treatment for brugada syndrome. The cause of death is a lethal cardiac arrhythmia. Treatment is a implantable cardiac defibrillator. Some recent studies suggest Quinidine may be helpful but only after a defibrillator..

General Surgery 56 years experience
.? What?.: The syndrome as written is not familiar. But heart transplant is indicated for incorrect able heart failure of multiple originations. Lvads = left ventricular assist device may be used as temporary or destination therapy depending on the specific patient situation.
Dr. Rick Koch
Cardiology 22 years experience
Brugada syndrome: Usually requires icd placement for avoidance of sudden cardiac death due to arrhythmia.
