Discover even more about the genetics of cardiovascular conditions

Backed by over 20 years of experience and over one million tests, GeneDx offers an unmatched depth of patient data and variant interpretation in the cardiogenetics field.

Expertise when you need it most

Whether you have a patient presenting with a specific cardiac condition or a patient whose clinical picture is more complex, our testing menu provides a range of options to meet your needs. We are experts at helping you identify current genetic testing guidelines for various cardiac indications, the benefits and limitations of the current testing methodologies, and the implications of genetic test results for your patients and their families. Our focus is on high quality, accurate result reporting. This is supported by internal and published data to make you feel confident when using our results to influence the management and treatment of your patients.

Where we can help you diagnose

  • Childhood-and early-onset cardiovascular disease
  • Multiple affected family members/generations
  • Sudden cardiac arrest/sudden cardiac death
  • Postmortem molecular analysis
  • Arrhythmias (long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia)
  • Cardiomyopathies (hypertrophic, dilated, left ventricular non-compaction, arrhythmogenic, restrictive)
  • Familial thoracic aortic aneurysm/dissection and related disorders (Marfan syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome, etc.)
  • Connective tissue disorders
  • Familial hypercholesterolemia/dyslipidemias
  • Congenital heart defects

Support every step of the way

Utilize our genetic counselors who specialize in cardiac indications to help you identify which patients may benefit from genetic testing. A patient’s personal and family histories, which may include various cardiac conditions, do not always reveal obvious indicators for test selection. We can help you take a diagnosis-focused approach to genetic testing to maximize the benefit to your patients and help answer your pre- and post-test questions. Virtual genetic counseling services are also available for your patients so you don’t have to navigate the process alone.

Discover our cardiology test menu

We offer various targeted cardiology panels. These are supplemented with preselected reflex testing options and custom ordering options. This enables both specific and comprehensive testing approaches and reduce testing costs.

Postmortem cardiology testing: partners in the search for answers

At times, the most informative person to test in a family is deceased. Postmortem genetic testing affords an opportunity to help establish the cause of sudden unexplained death and supplement findings on postmortem exam to determine whether family members may be at risk for a heritable disorder. Additionally, we work together with healthcare providers and medical examiners/coroners to help navigate the complexities of the postmortem genetic testing process. This includes discussion of available specimen types and testing strategies.
