Contact the Inherited Cardiac Arrhythmia Program

A major feature of many inherited heart conditions is arrhythmia, which is a disturbance in heart rhythm . This condition includes the heart rhythm disturbance (arrhythmic) syndromes, such as long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome and catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, where rhythm disturbances are the only feature. The condition also includes cardiomyopathies (where arrhythmias are associated with heart muscle conditions), such as arrhythmogneic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The arrhythmia associated with these conditions can lead to palpitations, syncope (black-outs) and sudden cardiac death, often in response to specific triggers.
