Rare cardiovascular diseases

Istituto Cardiocentro Ticino offers patients of the Swiss Italian Canton a full service for prevention, diagnosis and the best treatment for any cardiac disease, including cardiovascular diseases with genetic origins. These genetical pathologies are considered rare because they often affect less than 5 persons per 10’000 inhabitants, although it might be that the prevalence of these diseases are underestimated due to the absence of proper diagnosis.
