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.

Commonly prescribed drugs, such as antibiotics, psychotropic agents and histamine HI-receptor antagonists, can prolong cardiac repolarization and might trigger a polymorphic ventricular tachycardia called torsades de pointes (1).
The cause of death was given as catecholamine polymorphic ventricular tachycardia.
Less than 2% of patients treated with Corvert developed sustained polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, a potentially life-threatening arrhythmia of the ventricles also seen with other antiarrhythmic agents.
Cardiac channelopathies are rare, inherited heart conditions including Long QT Syndrome (LQTS), LQTS large Deletion Duplication, Short QT Syndrome (SQTS), Brugada Syndrome (BrS) and Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT).
Monomorphic and propafenone-induced polymorphic ventricular tachycardia in Brugada syndrome: a case report.
As with other antiarrhythmic agents used to treat atrial fibrillation and flutter, a potentially life-threatening side effect associated with Corvert is the development in a small number of patients of sustained polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (PVT), an arrhythmia of the ventricles.
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).
