Clinic for Heart Genetics

The field of heart genetics has become more and more important in recent years. With the new technologies of next-generation sequencing (NGS), our knowledge about the genetic basis of hereditary heart diseases has expanded vastly. Additionally, new NGS-based diagnostic tools now allow comprehensive and rapid genetic testing in patients with hereditary disorders of the heart. This, in turn, adds to our understanding of the various clinical features of these disorders and increasingly impacts treatment strategies. It is thus more and more important to follow a multidisciplinary approach in the management of patients with hereditary heart diseases.

We offer a genetic counselling clinic for hereditary heart disease specifically targeted to patients who either have a heart disease that is clinically suspected to be genetic or a family history of such a disease. The clinic is held together with cardiologists at the Heart Center of the University Medical Center Göttingen.
