Risk stratification in Brugada syndrome in young patients remains challenging. We investigated the clinical characteristics, prognosis, and risk in young patients with the Brugada syndrome. We studied 95 patients with the Brugada syndrome aged /=4 conferred a 5-year event probability of 30% that increased to 53% if the score was >/=6. In conclusion, our study validated a model to predict risk in young patients with the Brugada syndrome, which takes into account 4 clinical measures.
