Abstract

Sports eligibility and disqualification for patients with cardiac diseases are important considerations for adult and pediatric cardiologists. The 2005 guidelines that addressed this have recently been revised and updated and the new guidelines advocate for a shared decision making approach where the well-informed athlete and family participate in the discussion. In this review, we focus on the benefits of sports participation and review the revised guidelines related to sports participation in patients with channelopathies and cardiomyopathies.
