Conditions and Treatments

 

The Inherited Arrhythmia Clinic in Madison, Wisconsin, was established to meet the needs of individuals and families with possible inherited arrhythmia syndromes, and our physicians and staff bring together expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of these syndromes.

 

Common Conditions We Treat

  • Long QT Syndrome (LQTS): The most common form of inherited arrhythmia, this condition leaves patients at risk for developing a rapid chaotic arrhythmia called Torsades de Pointes and may lead to fainting spells or, in some patients, cardiac arrest and possibly sudden death. Learn more about Long QT Syndrome
  •  

  • Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC): A disease that causes the myocardium (muscular wall of the heart) to break down over time, which increases the risk of an abnormal heartbeat. Learn more about Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy
  •  

  • Brugada Syndrome: An inherited arrhythmia during which the ventricles (lower chambers of the heart) beat too quickly to allow blood to circulate efficiently in the body. Learn more about Brugada Syndrome
  •  

  • Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT): A congenital condition that occurs in patients with no structural heart problems and may cause syncope (fainting) or even sudden cardiac death and may be prevalent during exercise or extreme emotional states.

  • Idiopathic Ventricular Fibrillation
