Brief Summary:

This is a joint project by Sahlgrenska University Hospital: Sahlgrenska, Östra and Mölndal.

Our objective is to diagnose and map patients with well phenotyped cardiomyopathies (CMP) including in depth clinical and molecular phenotyping to enable earlier and specific treatment. The project will serve as:

  1. resource for diagnostic and therapeutic trials
  2. common biomaterial bank
  3. resource for detailed molecular analyses on patients' biomaterials and patient specific symptoms and examination results
