The long-term outlook (prognosis) for people with Brugada syndrome varies because the condition is very unpredictable. The condition manifests primarily during adulthood, and causes a high risk of ventricular arrhythmias and sudden death. The average age of sudden death is approximately 40 years. Affected people with a history of sudden cardiac arrest and/or fainting have an increased risk for subsequent episodes compared to people with no symptoms.
