New classification system for cardiomyopathy
Date:12/3/2013

Leading cardiologists at The Mount Sinai Hospital have contributed to the development of a new classification system called MOGE(S) for cardiomyopathies, the diseases of the heart muscle which can lead to heart enlargement and heart failure.

The new cardiomyopathy classification system was published simultaneously on November 18 by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) and Global Heart, the journal of the World Heart Federation. The Mount Sinai Hospital co-authors include: Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, Director of Mount Sinai Heart and Physician-in-Chief at The Mount Sinai Hospital; Sean Pinney, MD, Director of the Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation Program at The Mount Sinai Hospital and Jagat Narula, MD, PhD, Director of Cardiovascular Imaging Program at The Mount Sinai Hospital.

The document endorsed by the World Heart Federation is a result of the monumental effort of a 17-member international committee of widely acclaimed investigators (including cardiologists, geneticists, pathologists and imagers). The committee was chaired by Dr. Narula, who also led the development of the classification system.

MOGE(S) classification system and its easy-to-use online web application tool for physicians: http://moges.biomeris.com can assist in the diagnosis and management of each individual cardiomyopathy patient by helping to classify his or her following five cardiomyopathic disorder attributes including:

  • Morphofunctional characteristic, or observable clinical traits

  • Organ involvement

  • Genetic inheritance pattern

  • Etiological, or explicit genetic defect cause

  • Stage of heart failure (optional)

The new system uses a more comprehensive, descriptive nomenclature to explain each individual patient's cardiomyopathy using a configuration of letters as a descriptive lan
