The association with SCN5A gene mutations in the long QT syndrome (40) has made some authors recommend using sevoflurane (15,17) as it has no effect on QT length, unlike halothane and isoflurane (41).
Variant of SCN5A sodium channel implicated in risk of cardiac arrhythmia.
SCN5A mutations associated with an inherited cardiac arrhythmia, long QT syndrome.
The researchers describe a small mutation in SCN5A that appears in two families with this disorder.

These studies showed 3 families with a mutation in the SCN5A gene, which is the same gene known to be responsible for the LQ[T.
The remainder may have mutations in KCNE1 or KCNE2 encoding minx (8) and MiRP1 (4), respectively, or in the SCN5A gene encoding the SCN5A [Na.
In addition, the FAMILION DCM Test is the only DCM panel to include SCN5A and ANKRD1, two genes known to account for 5% of gene mutations in familial DCM patients.
The Sodium Channel Analysis provides analysis for variants only for the SCN5A gene and is appropriate in cases of suspected Brugada Syndrome.
