Genetic Heart Disease Treatment
Fletcher Allen is committed to the comprehensive evaluation and care of adults with genetic forms of heart disease.
Marfan syndrome, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and hereditary hemorrhagic telangectasia are all autosomal dominant disorders. Thus, first degree relatives of the patients have a 50% chance of also having the disorder.
When needed, we work closely with the genetics staff to evaluate both the patient and the family. A wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic options are available for the optimal treatment and management of patients with genetic forms of heart disease.
