Cardiovascular Genetics

The Cardiovascular Genetics Program specializes in genetic screening, evaluation, counseling and treatment for all forms of inherited cardiovascular disease. A multidisciplinary team composed of nationally recognized physicians and scientists apply the latest cardiovascular genetic research discoveries directly to patient care.

Cardiovascular Genetics

Under the direction of Arya Mani, MD, patients have access to the full range of cardiac services at Yale-New Haven Hospital Heart and Vascular Center.

Conditions treated:

  • Familial Aortic Aneurysms, Marfan Syndrome And Connective Tissue Disorders
  • Familial Coronary Artery Disease
  • Familial Dilated And Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
  • Familial Hyperlipidemia
  • Familial Hypertension
  • Inherited Arrhythmias

The Cardiovascular Genetics Program combines the best of standard treatments and the latest in testing to diagnose and treat inherited forms of cardiovascular disease. Through genetic testing, our physician scientists are able to diagnose those who are at risk for heart disease before it has developed. We also provide current therapy recommendations to prevent or delay heart disease in those who are at risk. In addition, patients are offered the opportunity to participate in research-based studies.
