- Autosomal dominant long qt syndrome
Autosomal dominant long QT syndrome is caused by abnormalities of the heart’s electrical conduction system. LQTS occurs if there is any defect in the ion channels, causing a delay in the time it takes for the electrical system to recharge after each heartbeat.Treatment is aimed at preventing symptoms such as syncope or cardiac arrest.For most individuals affected by Autosomal dominant long QT syndrome, the tr Read More
- Emery-dreifuss syndrome
Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) or emery-dreifuss syndrome is a rare, often slowly progressive genetic disorder affecting the skeletal and cardiac muscles that make up the arms, legs, face, neck, spine, and heart. The following can determine your susceptibility to EDMD:Age: Rarely does EDMD start before age five, with the average onset age falling between five and ten years.Genetic mutations: E Read More
- Long qt syndrome type 1
The potassium ion channels in the heart do not function properly in long QT syndrome type 1, which causes interference with the electrical activity of the heart. In people with LQT1, emotional stress or physical activity, especially swimming, can cause arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats).LQT1 patients are more likely to experience torsades de pointes, the most dangerous type of ventricular tachycardia. Altho Read More
- Surdocardiac syndrome -- jervell and lan...
Surdo Cardiac syndrome - Jervell and Lange-Nielsen is a rare genetic disorder that causes abnormal electrical impulse passage in the heart. It is most common during fetal development as a result of a genetic mutation, and it can cause arrhythmias, fainting, seizures, and cerebral palsy. Although there is no cure, treatments are available to help manage symptoms and prevent complications.The severity of these sympto Read More
