The Nordic ARVC Registry
The registry was launched in June 2010 and has been recruiting patients with ARVC previously diagnosed using 1994 Task Force Criteria (TFC) and followed in one of the eight tertiary care centers in Denmark, Norway or Sweden. The registry has also been prospectively including newly diagnosed patients after 2010 with definite ARVC according to 2010 TFC, and their genotype-positive family members. Several ongoing sub-studies.
Incident atrial fibrillation in low risk groups – an interdisciplinary project of determinants and prognosis
Incident atrial fibrillation in low risk groups – an interdisciplinary project of determinants and prognosis. Collaboration with Associate Professor Christina Catherine Dahm and Professor Kim Overvad, Department of Public Health, Aarhus University.
This project will address research questions on the etiology and prognosis of AF arising from clinical treatment of AF patients, using the Danish Diet, Cancer and Health study, a population-based cohort (n=57053). There are more than 5000 AF cases through December 2017 – all genotyped.
