Although for many years the Brugada syndrome has been labelled as a purely electrical disease in the structurally normal heart, the evolution of imaging techniques has enabled the discovery of subtle morphofunctional alterations in some of the Brugada syndrome patients. We will use new echocardiographic techniques to assess cardiac function in these patients and new parameters will be evaluated for their prognostic value as risk stratificators.
