Core Tip The review underlines the different incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and the reason of this discrepancy as well as the different kind of approach to competitive athletes in Italy and United States. We emphasize the importance of electrocardiogram (ECG) as a simple and economical diagnostic tool, considering the opportunity of implementing the pre-participation screening (PPS) with echocardiogram, in order to detect mild structural cardiac diseases. After a cost-effectiveness analysis we finally suggest an innovative proposal in order to further prevent SCD: a rapid but focused echocardiogram assessment during the first PPS in addition to physical examination and ECG.
