Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Inherited cardiac conditions (ICCs) are heritable cardiac disorders that can affect many individuals in the family and are often associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac death. The major types of ICCs are cardiomyopathies, inherited arrhythmia syndromes, and aortopathy syndromes. ICCs can affect individuals of any age, including young children, but much of the data available on diagnosis and management are extrapolated from adult cohorts. In the last few years, there have been significant advances in our understanding of the genetic basis of ICCs and on clinical evaluation and management. Novel therapeutic approaches are now entering the clinical arena, and detailed knowledge of the early, paediatric stages of ICCs is essential. This Special Issue, titled Clinical and Genetic Characterisation of Paediatric Inherited Cardiovascular Disease, aims to provide a state-of-the-art update on the current understanding of ICCs in children and address some of the current knowledge gaps. We are delighted to invite original research contributions in addition to invited review articles for this Special Issue.
