Cardiac Genetic Testing

Identifying factors of cardiovascular disease and managing them is a crucial part of a heart-healthy lifestyle. Some risks for heart conditions are passed from one generation to the next. These hereditary or genetic risk factors may increase the chance of developing heart disease.

Our cardiac genetic testing offers a comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessment that focuses on family history and genetics along with personal and environmental factors:

  • Heart attacks and “Sudden Unexplained Death,” especially at young ages
  • Family members with pacemakers or internal cardiac defibrillators (ICDs)
  • Fainting
  • Heart murmur
  • Abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia)
  • Heart surgeries
  • Heart failure
  • Aortic aneurysms
