Quite simply, we demonstrate that estrogen promotes major cardiac events - such as polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (pVT) and SCD - while progesterone prevents them when LQT2 is a factor.
Mutations in the human RYR2 gene have been associated with two inherited cardiac diseases: arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy type 2 (ARVD2; OMIM 600996) and stress-induced polymorphic ventricular tachycardia [ventricular tachycardia, stress-induced, polymorphic (VT-SIP); OMIM 604772] (5-10).

The inherited cardiac channelopathies, including Long QT Syndrome (LQTS), Brugada Syndrome (BrS) and Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT), are the cause of death for over 30% of Sudden Unexplained Deaths (SUDS) and 10-15% of autopsy-negative Sudden Infant Deaths (SIDS).
