Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) is an inherited heart rhythm disorder characterized by the occurrence of potentially life-threatening polymorphic ventricular tachyarrhythmias in conditions of physical or emotional stress. The underlying cause is a dysregulation in intracellular Ca handling due to mutations in the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca release unit. Recent experimental work suggests that sinus bradycardia, which is sometimes observed in CPVT patients, may be another primary defect caused by CPVT mutations. Herein, we review the pathophysiology of CPVT and discuss the role of sinus node dysfunction as a modulator of arrhythmia risk and potential therapeutic target.
