The Cardiac Sarcoidosis Clinic sees patients who are referred by their physician for one of the following reasons:
- patients with diagnosed cardiac sarcoidosis for treatment and follow-up,
- younger patients (less than 60 years of age) who have unexplained, new onset, significant cardiac electrical conduction system disease in which cardiac sarcoidosis may be a cause,
- unexplained arrhythmias originating from the ventricle (lower chamber of the heart) in which cardiac sarcoidosis may be a cause,
- patients already diagnosed with sarcoidosis elsewhere in the body who are being investigated for possible sarcoidosis in the heart (cardiac sarcoidosis).
What to Expect
Your doctor must refer you to the clinic. Prior to coming in for your appointment, expect to have some tests ordered. You will receive information from the clinic regarding any special preparations.
