Genomics England (the 100,000 genomes project) includes one condition relevant to Vascular Surgery - Thoracic aneurysm or dissection. If you have any patients suspected of a familial thoracic aneurysm or dissection then they can be entered into the project. Only by having enough patients in the project will a meaningful analysis of the genomics related to thoracic aortopathies be possible.
Referral is very simple, all you have to do is get permission from the patient and write to one of the referral centres. Click HERE for the link. Each referral centre has a number of recruitment sites so there is usualy one close by.
