Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Genetic variants associated with arrhythmias [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Genome-wide association study of arrhythmias

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Biospecimens to be collected: DNA, RNA, plasma, & serum. Also tissue may be collected.

Estimated Enrollment: 2000
Actual Study Start Date: March 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Patients with arrhythmias
Control Subjects
Subjects that do not have a history of cardiac arrhythmias.

Detailed Description:
The long-term objective of this research is to find genes and biologic pathways causing arrhythmia syndromes and other diseases or conditions. In order to achieve this objective the investigators will collect comprehensive phenotypic data and corresponding blood and/or tissue samples into a biorepository registry of patients, presenting for cardiac arrhythmia evaluation and/or treatment, and control subjects without arrhythmias. This biorepository will be composed of two parts: 1) An Arrhythmia Biorepository of blood and tissue from patients undergoing arrhythmia procedures, cardiac surgery, or inpatient or outpatient evaluations for arrhythmias, and 2) A Collaborative Sample Biorepository for de-identified samples and data from outside institutions and clinical trials.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients undergoing arrhythmia procedures, cardiac surgery or inpatient or outpatient evaluations for arrhythmias at the Cleveland Clinic or from outside collaborative institutions or from other clinical trials.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female at least 18 years old
  • Subjects with a history of or current cardiac arrhythmia, family members of subjects with cardiac arrhythmias, or no cardiac arrhythmia if a Control Subject.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects previously enrolled in the Arrhythmia BioBank
