TESTING FOR HEREDITARY HEART DISEASE

Assessing Your Genetic Cardio Risks

Cardiac arrest, which is not to be confused with a heart attack, happens when the entire heart stops beating. A heart attack is when the blood supply to the heart muscle is interrupted. This is the leading cause of non-traumatic death in the United States with genetic causes making up 25 percent of cardiac arrests.

Cardiovascular disorders affect the vessels of the heart and blood which carry oxygen and nutrients through the body. Cardiovascular disorders can occur on several factors, including genetic inheritance.

Mutations in genes can affect how the heart cells communicate, the intensity can affect how the heart cells communicate, the intensity of the heart muscle, and the influence of the heart rhythm disease that results in rapid irregular heartbeats. The detection of these genetic factors plays a significant part in the prognosis, treatment, and thus outcome of the disease.

Our Inherited Cardio Panel

Our genetic cardiac panels targets 235 genes with established associations to 17 inherited cardiac disorders including cardiomyopathy, arrhymia, high cholesterol and hypertriglyceridemia, aortopathy and more. This assay is performed using genomic DNA obtained from a swab in the cheek.

Medical associations like the American Heart Association (AHA), American College of Cardiology (ACC), and the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) advocate genetic testing for inherited heart disease.

When to consider genetic testing:

Genetic testing could be recommended if you (or a family member) has a known or suspected diagnosis of one or more of the following:

Genetic Cardiovascular Disorders Testing may:

  • Stop or confirm a proper diagnosis
  • Identify risk for other health issues related to the disorder
  • Provide valuable knowledge for those with a good test outcome to get the best management plan
  • All members of a family at risk to undergo genetic testing
  • Provides Family Planning options

What are the benefits of Genetic Testing?

  • Set or confirm a specific diagnosis
  • Issue an description of the root cause of your cardiac condition
  • Make informed medical decisions and offer an opportunity to implement approaches for risk management
  • Know whether you are at risk of having an underlying disorder affecting more than one organ or system in your body (multisystem conditions);
  • Identify other at-risk families that are advised to undergo genetic testing.
