Overview

This tutorial seeks to equip the learner with the state of the art regarding the diagnostic evaluation and therapeutic strategies for patients with congenital long QT syndrome (LQTS) which is the most common cardiac channelopathy. Key pearls and pitfalls regarding the 12-lead ECG and LQTS genetic testing will be covered in order to minimize both the underdiagnosis and overdiagnosis of this potentially lethal syndrome. This program will also enhance your ability to personalize and tailor your patient's LQTS treatment program so that they can live and thrive despite the diagnosis.

Objectives

  • Recognize the “face” (phenotype) of congenital long QT syndrome (LQTS)
  • Critique the various diagnostic modalities used in the evaluation of LQTS and understand their limitations
  • Assess the currently available treatment options for the various LQT syndromes and evaluate their efficacy
