Inherited Cardiac Diseases
There are over 250,000 people with inherited cardiac diseases in the UK. The most feared complication of many of these diseases is sudden death in the first three decades of life. Early detection and risk stratification has the potential to prevent catastrophies and identify other family members who might be affected. I specialise in inherited cardiac diseases and have a particular interest in cardiomyopathy, ethnic differences in cardiovascular disease, ion channel disorders and Sudden Arrhytthmic Death Syndrome (SADS). Our tertiary consultant-led inherited cardiac disease clinic (ICDC) at St George's Hospital evaluates patients with familial cardiac conditions. The clinic is nationally reputed and supports the S.E London area and receives referrals throughout UK.
