About Cardiomyopathy & Genetics
Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, also known as the myocardium, in which the actual muscle cells and surrounding tissues are sick.
In some cases, cardiomyopathy may be inherited due to a genetic change or mutation.
Cincinnati Children’s is offering this live, online question and answer session to answer your questions about genetic testing, treatment and prognosis for inherited forms of cardiomyopathy. During this event, our co-hosts, John Lynn Jefferies, MD, and Ivan Wilmot, MD, will answer questions from you and other families online in real-time.
