Sudden cardiac arrest (SCD) is a catastrophic cardiovascular event most commonly occurring as a consequence of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in adults suffering from acute myocardial infarction (MI) or its late consequences. Several studies have demonstrated the role of family history of SCD in the determination of risk of SCD and VF; however, the genetic underpinnings of SCD and VF remain largely unknown. Raha Pazoki identifies genetic risk factors for the occurrence of VF.
