Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sudden death is a relative concept, but generally refers to death occurring soon after symptom onset. In this review, cardiac causes of sudden death, designated coronary and noncoronary, are addressed. In the coronary category, coronary artery anomalies and altered coronary tone are discussed, while myocardial causes, valvular causes, aortic dissection and conduction system are outlined as part of noncoronary causes of sudden death. Sudden death in athletes and exercising youth also receives special comment.
