Research

Researchers at Mayo Clinic conduct clinical and laboratory research in genetics, causes, new diagnostic tests and treatments for long QT syndrome. Doctors also conduct research in identifying those at risk of sudden death in long QT syndrome and genetic testing for long QT syndrome. Staff in the Windland Smith Rice Sudden Death Genomics Laboratory study long QT syndrome and other causes of sudden cardiac death.

Mayo's research team has studied the genetics of long QT syndrome extensively. Recent investigations include such topics as studying the linking of genetic variation in calcium-handling proteins to long QT syndrome, and studying two new syndromes — triadin knockout syndrome (TKOS) and arrhythmic bileaflet mitral valve prolapse syndrome.
