Brugada Syndrome is characterized by arrhythmogenic risk that may be exacerbated by different metabolic and pharmacological factors. Since its first description, knowledge of this syndrome and its detection by physicians belonging to different specialties have gradually increased. The risk of arrhythmias is well known to increase in the postoperative period, and this risk is particularly accentuated in patients with Brugada Syndrome. The purpose of this review is to analyze the relationship between this syndrome and anesthesia; establish recommendations for the safe management of these patients in the surgical setting; and update the relevant concepts regarding the safety of drug administration in individuals with Brugada Syndrome.
