[…] guidelines of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), a moderate criterion for pathogenicity (Richards et al., ).A meta‐analysis of DES mutations revealed that about 50% of the DES mutation carriers developed cardiomyopathy and about 60% had a conduction disease with atrioventricular block (van Spaendonck‐Zwarts et al., ). Desmin is highly expressed in cells of the Purkinje […]
