Testing Strategy


Inherited cardiomyopathies are a group of genetically heterogeneous cardiac diseases that are relatively common in the general population They are associated with heart failure and sudden cardiac death and have a substantial genetic component. Familial inheritance is common and typically follows an autosomal dominant pattern, though other inheritance are also observed. The predominant forms are hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), followed by arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) and left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC).
