The BMJ this week features an article by Hans Van Brabant and colleagues from the Belgian Health Care Knowledge Centre in Brussels on the debate over pre-participation screening of young people to reduce sudden cardiac deaths in young athletes. The review article and accompanying commentary consider the evidence behind the 2015 decision by the UK National Screening Committee not to recommend pre-participation ECG screening.
