The Cardiomyopathy Clinic implements various diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for the management of patients suffering from rare structural heart disorders and cardiomyopathies.
The Cardiomyopathy Clinic at MITERA Hospital Adult Cardiology Department implements various diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for the management of patients suffering from rare structural heart disorders and cardiomyopathies (hypertrophic, dilated, restrictive, non-compacted myocardium, arrhythmogenic dysplasia, etc.). Our main objective is to ensure and establish a well-rounded guidance through a series of specialized tests, including echocardiogram, stress tests, special biochemical analysis and heart MRI, as well as genetic guidance for patients and their relatives.
The management and long-term monitoring of the Cardiomyopathy Clinic patients is performed by a team of highly skilled specialists and is based on a specific testing and monitoring protocol applied in similar cardiomyopathy centers across the European Union in accordance with the most up-to-date scientific and clinical guidelines and consensus updates. In the context of its operation, the Cardiomyopathy Clinic also raises awareness among patients, healthcare professionals and the general public about these rare conditions, in order to facilitate the prompt diagnosis of the underlying cardiac disorder and referral of these patients to dedicated centers for further testing and follow-up. Experimental and clinical research, as well as national and international collaborations play a vital role, as they guarantee the quality of the Cardiomyopathy Clinic, its scientific staff and the activities they undertake.
Finally, the Cardiomyopathy Clinic aims to offer comprehensive services for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of inherited cardiovascular diseases closely linked to sudden death in young individuals who require special care.
