State of the Art Review on Genetics and Precision Medicine in Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy
Patel V, Asatryan B, Siripanthong B, et al. State of the art review on genetics and precision medicine in arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy. Int J Mol Sci. 2020;21(18).
Arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM) is an inherited cardiomyopathy characterised by ventricular arrhythmia and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). Numerous genetic determinants and phenotypic manifestations have been discovered in ACM, posing a significant clinical challenge. Further to this, wider evaluation of family members has revealed incomplete penetrance and variable expressivity in ACM, suggesting a complex genotype-phenotype relationship. This review details the genetic basis of ACM with specific genotype-phenotype associations, providing the reader with a nuanced perspective of this condition; whilst also proposing a future roadmap to delivering precision medicine-based management in ACM.
