Brugada syndrome is a genetic disease leading to sudden cardiac death, which is characterized by a spontaneous or induced ST-segment elevation with right bundle branch block in V1-3 leads in electrocardiography in those without any structural heart disease. As there is a limited number of experiences on anesthetizing patients with Brugada syndrome, no consensus report for clinical practice has been available yet. In this systematic review, we discussed the anesthesia techniques, and the effects and safety of anesthesia applied in this rarely seen heart disease.
