Inherited Cardiomyopathy 

Yale-New Haven's Inherited Cardiomyopathy Program offers patients a full range of diagnostic, treatment and management services as well as extensive multidisciplinary support for adults and children with all types of cardiomyopathy.

Inherited Cardiomyopathy
The Cardiomyopathy Program is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive care to patients with inherited heart disease. Partnering with University College London's William McKenna, MD, a world-renowned clinician and scholar in inherited cardiomyopathy, patients and their families are cared for by Yale-New Haven cardiologists and geneticists specially trained in inheritable heart diseases. We offer the latest imaging techniques and treatment strategies, including clinical evaluation, diagnosis, screening, risk assessment and treatment process.

Finding cardiomyopathy while it can still be treated


Doctors in the cardiomyopathy clinic use early detection and follow-up in an effort to reduce sudden cardiac death cases to as close to zero as possible, and to delay the onset of symptomatic and advanced heart failure.

Cardiomyopathies we treat:

  • Familial dilated cardiomyopathy
  • Hypertrophic cardiolmyopathy
  • Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
  • Restrictive cardiomyopathy
  • Left ventricular non-compaction
  • Glycogen storage diseases
  • Cardiac rhythm disturbances such as long QT syndrome and Brugada syndrome
