Identifying the Underlying Genetic Cause of Inherited Arrhythmia Syndromes In Early Childhood

Principle Investigator: Dr Jodie Ingles

Project Institution: Centenary Institute, Sydney

Heart disease in children results in significant symptoms and can ultimately lead to arrhythmias and premature death. One form of heart disease in children relates to abnormalities in the electrical activity of the heart, many of which are inherited. Inherited arrhythmia syndromes can be difficult to diagnose on standard clinical tests, making clinical screening of family members challenging. Better understanding of the genetics may be useful in predicting clinical outcomes of affected children, but most importantly, can more accurately determine risk to other family members. The proposed study will use the latest genetic technologies to identify the genetic causes and to use these results in clinical care.
