Inherited cardiovascular diseases are conditions that run in families and affect various portions of the heart, including the heart muscle, the electrical system, the blood vessels, or cholesterol and lipid levels. These genetic diseases are often rare and may go undiagnosed unless you receive care from a cardiology team that specializes in these conditions.
The Stanford Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease offers the comprehensive care you and your family need. Leading specialists in cardiology, genetics, and nursing offer expert interpretation of test results and can recognize subtle clues that lead to an accurate diagnosis for you and your family. They help you understand your test results and which of your relatives might also need to have their hearts checked.
