Abstract

Background: Brugada syndrome (BrS)-type electrocardiogram (ECG) is concealed by complete right bundle-branch block (CRBBB) in some cases of BrS. Clinical significance of BrS masked by CRBBB is not well known. Methods and Results:We reviewed an ECG database of 326 BrS patients who had type 1 ECG with or without pilsicainide. “BrS masked by CRBBB” was defined on ECG as
