The degenerative changes of Alzheimer's Disease lead to patches or plaques in the brain and the entanglement of nerve fibers (neurofibrillary tangles). For example, in patients with HCM, recurrent episodes of exercise-induced myocardial ischemia during intensive training may result in cell death and myocardial replacement fibrosis, which in turn enhances ventricular electrical instability. 34 In patients with ARVC, regular and intense physical activity may provoke right ventricular volume overload and cavity enlargement, which in turn may accelerate fibrofatty atrophy. 35 In Marfan syndrome, the hemodynamic stress placed on the aorta by increased blood pressure and stroke volume during intense activity (particularly with rapid acceleration and deceleration) may promote and increase the rate of aortic enlargement. 36 However, in the majority of patients with Brugada syndrome, the malignant ventricular arrhythmias occur at rest and, in many cases, at night as a consequence of an increased vagal activity and/or withdrawal of sympathetic activity. 7,37,38 Enhanced adrenergic drive such as occurs during sports activity could have an inhibitory effect and theoretically reduce sudden death risk.
