Is every condition you find curable?


Most conditions that cause sudden cardiac death in young individuals are not curable. However, we can identify individuals who are likely to die and reduce the risk of sudden death. Many of these conditions also cause symptoms that can be debilitating and these symptoms can be treated with drug treatment such as beta blockers. There are very few conditions that are curable, these include Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, anomalous coronary arteries, atrial septal defects and those people with significant valve abnormalities such as aortic stenosis or severe mitral regurgitation.
