Does a heart condition run in your family? You’re not alone. In fact, about 1.3 million Americans have some form of an inherited heart or vascular disease. But know this: Every condition listed here is treatable. Whatever your risk may be, genetic testing or cardiovascular screening is the first step to identify and address that risk or rule it out.

Aortic and Vascular Diseases

An aortic and vascular disease is any disease of the aorta or blood vessels. The aorta is your body’s main artery, and it can be affected by a variety of conditions, including aneurysm and dissection.


A cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle. Most cardiomyopathies take place when your heart muscle becomes enlarged, thick or rigid. This weakens the muscle over time, which can lead to arrhythmias or heart failure. Symptoms can be nonexistent or sudden and severe. Treatments range from complex surgery to simple lifestyle changes.

Primary Arrhythmias

An arrhythmia is a problem with your heart’s rhythm. Arrhythmias occur when the electrical impulses that coordinate heartbeats are not working properly, making the heart beat too quickly, too slowly or inconsistently. Many arrhythmias are harmless, but some can cause troublesome or even fatal symptoms.
