Flecainide toxicity: cause and contribution to death



Flecainide toxicity: cause and contribution to death



Legal Medicine 3(4): 233-236



In this report, we describe in detail one fatality in which flecainide toxicity was considered to be the primary cause of death and discuss the possible contribution of flecainide in another case. The concentration of flecainide in postmortem specimens is discussed in relation to other drugs as well as some of the difficulties associated with the interpretation of postmortem drug levels.
