Cardiomyopathy & Advanced Heart Failure Clinic
The Cardiomyopathy and Advanced Heart Failure Clinic within the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s provides consultative care for diagnosing and managing all forms of cardiomyopathy in children.
Held each weekday, the Cardiomyopathy and Advanced Heart Failure Clinic provides a thorough clinical assessment for patients of all ages with heart muscle dysfunction. Patients may be screened utilizing ultrasonography or magnetic resonance imaging. Personal and family histories are obtained and the family is counseled regarding a possible underlying genetic basis of the heart muscle disease and associated inheritance patterns. Metabolic and molecular genetic testing are used to identify causes in select patients.
