Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Young competitive athletes are perceived by the general population to be the healthiest members of society. The possibility that highly trained athletes may have a potentially serious cardiac condition that can predispose to life-threatening tachyarrhythmias or sudden cardiac death seems paradoxical. Thus, differentiating the benign, exercise-induced physiologic changes from true pathologic conditions with risk of sudden death is critical for developing appropriate screening strategies to reduce the risk of these adverse events.
