Directed by John Lynn Jefferies, MD, the Cardiomyopathy Clinic features a team of pediatric and adult cardiologists and cardiovascular genetic experts. They investigate all forms of pediatric and adult cardiomyopathy, including hypertrophic dilated or restrictive cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia / cardiomyopathy and left ventricular noncompaction. The team can also diagnose complex forms of heart muscle disease associated with genetic syndromes, inborn errors of metabolism or mitochondrial disorders.
The Cardiomyopathy and Advanced Heart Failure Clinic utilizes the Heart Institute Diagnostic Lab to provide viral PCR and genetic testing for DNA mutations associated with cardiomyopathy. Our genetic counselor can help patients and physicians interpret the results.
