Pediatric Cardiac Genetics

Many cardiovascular disorders including congenital heart disease can occur in families and can be passed from one generation to the next. While all physicians within the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at the University of Michigan have experience in treating patients with familial heart disease, there are several clinics which are specifically designed to meet the needs of families with inherited forms of heart disease. These clinics include the Multidisciplinary Pediatric Neuromuscular Disorders Clinic for patients with myopathy and muscular dystrophy; the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Clinic; the Cardiac Transplant Clinic for the evaluation and management of patients with heart failure, including those with familial cardiomyopathies; the Prevention Clinic which treats patients with hypertension, obesity and high cholesterol; and the Arrhythmia Clinic that serves all patients with abnormal heart rhythms some of which may be inherited. In addition, there is a Pediatric Cardiovascular Genetics Clinic for the assessment of patients with all other genetic and inherited cardiac disorders including DiGeorge, Marfan's, Holt-Oram, and Noonan's syndromes and all chromosomal abnormalities.
