Carolina Bongini and colleagues analyze the prevalence and clinical correlates of atrial fibrillation (AF) in relation to genotype in a large hypertrophic cardiomyopathy(HC) cohort. They concluded that, in patients with HC, genetic testing cannot be used in clinical decision making with regard to management strategies for AF,  genotype is not predictive of onset or severity of AF, and exceptions are represented by rare genes suggesting specific molecular pathways for AF in genetic cardiomyopathies.

about Alamut

"We are very grateful for the work you do with Alamut and continuing to improve it. We use it on daily basis to help us interpret variants for clinical tests including our technicians, analysts, genetic counselors and lab directors. Alamut has the comprehensive information available for interpreting variants and great documentation. I’ve recommended Alamut to many customers who ask me about the tools that I use. Many thanks to you for making this possible."
