He completed his cardiology internship and residency at the University of Paris Descartes. He specialises in the clinical management of patients with cardiomyopathies with a specific expertise in neuromuscular diseases. Key areas of clinical and fundamental research for Pr. Wahbi are the prevention of heart failure and sudden death, the study of molecular mechanisms underlying cardiomyopathy and development of innovative therapies in patients with neuromuscular conditions.
This webinar gives a global overview of cardiovascular involvement in neuromuscular conditions, its impact on patient prognosis and the potential preventives approaches that can be implemented. A number of specific neuromuscular cardiomyopathies will be presented in detail, including those observed in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, myotonic dystrophy type 1 and laminopathies .
