Updates on the Genetic Paradigm in Heart Failure

Current Treatment Options in Cardiovascular Medicine
Andrew N Rosenbaum, Naveen Pereira


The rapidly evolving field of cardiovascular genetics has already improved the care of patients with heart failure and families. The purpose of the current review is to describe the most and provide the most pertinent updates in the field of heart failure genetics. Recent advanced in heart failure genetics have begun to not only increase the yield of testing through improving technology and use of whole exome or whole genome screening, but also enabled the improving technology and increasing use of whole exome or whole genome screening, but also enabled an enhanced understanding of the implications of results of genetic testing. For instance, new data have described differential responses to heart failure therapies based on genetic testing. Additionally, variant analysis by locus in genetic cardiomyopathies has facilitated a much-improved prognostic understanding of phenotype. Recent years have seen advancements in the understanding of the genetics of rare disorders, including pediatric-onset cardiomyopathies, previously under-investigated; restrictive cardiomyopathies; and non-compaction cardiomyopathy. The last few years have heralded not only a broader understanding of the scope of the genetics of heart failure, but have als...Continue Reading

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
