The Durrer Center manages a couple of catalogues, they are listed below. By clicking on the link the catalog will open in a new window.
Durrer Center studies Catalogue:
This catalogue gives an overview of all the studies that are stored at the Durrer Center. This catalogue can be used by researchers to find interesting cohorts/samples for their study.click here for the Durrer Center study collection
Patients with primary cardiac arrhythmia syndromes (ion channelopathies) or secondary cardiac arrhythmia syndromes (cardiomyopathies) with a known mutation are included in the GENCOR catalogue. Patients with structural congenital heart defects (e.g. Tetralogy of Fallot, aortic coarctation, ventricular septal defect and atrial septal defects, aortic valvar stenosis) or Marfan syndrome are excluded from participation.
Cardiac Tissue Biobank Utrecht:
The Cardiac Tissue Biobank Utrecht combines clinical and genetic data with cardiac tissue collected by the departments of pathology and cardiology from UMC Utrecht starting from the 1980’s. Included biobank materials are cardiac tissue (e.g. biopsies, heart slices), fibroblast cell cultures, plasma, and DNA. In total, more than 500 patients with an ischemic or non-ischemic cardiomyopathy who underwent a heart transplantation or left ventricular assist device implantation are included in the Cardiac Tissue Biobank Utrecht.
