Hereditary cardiovascular diseases – a multimodel approach for preventing sudden cardiac death

The Centre for Cardiovascular Genetics (CCG) constitutes a collaboration between four clinical departments at the University Hospital of Umeå, dedicated to clinical work and research in families with inherited cardiovascular diseases. Our centre offers unique research possibilities through the large patient cohorts from the family clinic at CCG, where Long QT syndrome (LQTS), Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and Heritable Thoracic Aortic Diseases (HTAD) are the most common diagnoses. The general aim of our research is to prevent sudden cardiovascular death by investigating pathophysiological mechanisms and correlating genetic findings (genotype) to the observable characteristics (phenotype) of patients with life threatening hereditary cardiovascular diseases.
