Medical Management for Hereditary Cardiomyopathies with John L. Jeffries, MD, MPH, FACC, FAHA, FAAP, FHFSA, FRCPE

  • Genetic triggers of cardiovascular disease are increasingly recognized as significant drivers of phenotypic pathology. Genetics play a major role in the development of channelopathies, aortopathies, and nonischemic cardiomyopathies. This lecture will provide information regarding the current understanding of genetic drivers of dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy, and arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy.
