Updates on Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death in Athletes

April 15, 2019 | 7:30 am5:00 pm CDT

Global leaders are convening in London to discuss the current state of Sport Cardiology and attempt to propose a new standard. Additionally, a sub-section will deal with a specific update of the pathophysiology and severity methods in anomalous coronary arteries, as based on IVUS imaging. Several clinical cases of CAAs will be discussed by physicians in training and experts.

The primary mission of Sport Cardiology is to prevent Sudden Cardiac Death(SCD) during exertion. However: The current status of History and Physical exam capacity to prevent SCD is close to zero, by itself.


Basic questions being discussed at the symposium:

  • Do we agree that: prevention of SCD in athletes is possible (always?), but the basic current standard of screening (H&P) is failing?
  • What needs to be clarified to improve statistical data in SCD of athletes? The issue of the prevalence of carriers with hr-CVC.
  • Do we know what is the real incidence of SCD with “normal-autopsy”? (5% or 30% or 40%?). What are the missing causes?
  • How can we improve autopsy results (severity of CVC at autopsy)?
  • Human rights considerations, Athletes and families rights, Mandates for schooling systems, Insurance Companies and
  • States should clearly promote a more effective preventive policy and each should be accountable.


The specific targeted audience includes General cardiologists, Sport cardiologists, Interventional cardiologists, CV pathologists, Cardio-radiologists, Cardiovascular Surgeons and others. To join this group of unique visionaries for revealing reviews and productive discussions register online.
