Inherited Heart Disorders

Inherited heart (also called cardiac) disorders are due to a change in a gene that can be passed on through our parents’ genes. Some changes in genes impact how the heart is formed or functions. The effects of an inherited cardiac disease within families can be very serious. Identification of a gene mutation can help support effective treatment and management and also support genetic risk assessment and testing of close relatives.
