A Bit About Me

Welcome to the AICC

Inherited cardiovascular conditions (ICCs) is a term used to describe a variety of inherited, familial diseases of the heart and great vessels. The main types affect the heart muscle (called the cardiomyopathies), the electrics of the heart (channelopathies) and the major blood vessel coming from the heart (aortopathies). Each of these diseases in some cases can be life threatening. 

This website is intended to support clinicians and anyone involved in the care of someone with an ICC. It hopes to provide the opportunity for you to access relevant, high quality information about these conditions. 

The Association of Inherited Cardiac Conditions (AICC) is a National organisation which brings together a network of expertise from all over the UK, who work together with patient representatives, healthcare professionals and voluntary organisations to support improvements in the diagnosis, treatment and outcomes of people with ICCs. We aim to deliver standardised quality care across the UK which is accessible for all and to benchmark care delivery according to evidence based guidelines and audits of practice. 

"For 15 years the Association of Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions (AICC) has led the way in providing education, research support, and a voice for the whole community of doctors, nurses, genetic counsellors, patients and others seeking to improve the care of those with ICCs. The landscape of Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions is changing rapidly. Over the next 15 years, together, we will build further upon this fantastic work!" ​

Join our annual meeting and training events to collaborate and learn from world-leaders in the field of inherited cardiovascular conditions. We are keen to grow and develop. If you would like anything to be included here, or if there are any upcoming events that you think would be helpful to other patients and/or clinicians, please get in touch via the 'Contact us' section or aicc@bcs.com
