Brief Summary:
In many of the patients with cardiomyopathy, the etiology is not clear . In about 30% there is a family history of cardiomyopathy .Our aim is to study the genetics basis for these patients with cardiomyopathy with no clear etiology and who have a first degree family relative with cardiomyopathy as well.
