The MOGE(S) classification system for cardiomyopathies was developed from the need to describe these heart muscle diseases by integrating phenotype description as well as genetic information.
The proposed nomenclature assists in the description of cardiomyopathy by helping to classify the following five cardiomyopathic disorder attributes: Morpho-functional phenotipe, Organ involvement, Genetic inheritance, Etiology and functional Status. To do this it is supported by a easy-to-use web application (http://moges.biomeris.com) that can be used on a computer, mobile phone, or other electronic device by medical professionals in daily clinical practice for a descriptive and comprehensive classification of a patient’s individual cardiomyopathy type (figura 1). The flexible MOGE(S) system facilitates the transition of description of cardiomyopathies from the pre-genetic to the genetic era and ensures the capture of an enormous amount of data that could be lost if not systematically registered.Figura 1: The MOGE(S) web application
