Our aim is to provide patients with information about future cardiac-related risks related to underlying inherited cardiac disorders. Any information gained in this panel can be used to give a better understanding of each individual’s cardiac health. It will also allow the physician and patient to develop a medical management plan to help reduce or prevent adverse cardiac-related events.
Genetic testing for inherited cardiac conditions is recommended by several medical societies including the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and Heart Rhythm Society.
