          Abstract

          Postmortem genetic testing (molecular autopsy) for the common long QT syndrome (LQTS) and catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) genes reveals a pathogenic mutation in up to 30% of sudden unexplained death (SUD). The role of additional cardiac arrhythmia and cardiomyopathy genes in SUD is largely unknown.
