Probable cause of Bronny James’ cardiac arrest episode said to be a ‘Congenital Heart Defect’

News & Politics

A congenital heart defect has been named as the probable cause behind the sudden cardiac arrest that Bronny James, the son of NBA superstar LeBron James, suffered earlier this year.

“After a comprehensive initial evaluation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center led by Dr. Merije Chukumerije and follow-up evaluations at the Mayo Clinic led by Dr. Michael J. Ackerman and Atlantic Health/Morristown Medical Center led by Dr. Matthew W. Martinez, the probable cause of Mr. James’ sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) has been identified. It is an anatomically and functionally significant Congenital Heart Defect which can and will be treated,” a James family spokesperson noted in a statement.

“We are very confident in Bronny’s full recovery and return to basketball in the very near future. We will continue to provide updates to media and respectfully reiterate the family’s request for privacy,” the statement added.

The 18-year-old experienced cardiac arrest while practicing, a statement from a family spokesperson noted last month.
