Researchers link gene mutations to Ebstein's anomaly
Date:2/16/2011

ients who were not related to each other for mutations in MYH7. In eight of the study participants, the researchers identified mutations in this gene. Six of these patients also suffered from the myocardial disease LVNC in addition to Ebstein's anomaly.

"From these results we conclude that one mutation can lead to different congenital heart diseases. These can even occur concurrently, as here with Ebstein's anomaly and LVNC," said Dr. Klaassen. "In these cases we recommend that other family members also undergo cardiac examinations and genetic testing, since the risk for heart arrhythmia or heart failure is increased in mutation carriers even if they are not known to have a congenital heart defect. The earlier the mutations encoding the structural proteins of the heart are recognized, the better: close monitoring, long-term ECG recording and drug treatment can be conducted at an early stage. This means that physicians can advise and treat their patients more effectively."
