Suspected genetic disease

Cardiology panels

Suspected genetic disease

In both cardiomyopathies and channelopathies, the identification of the pathogenic variant allows the disease to be confirmed and prevention measures to be taken for both the patient and their relatives.

Unexplained sudden death

The likelihood that a young case of sudden death is of genetic origin means that other relatives may be at risk without diagnosis. In these cases, genetic studies can prevent a second death. The service can be very beneficial for forensic institutes.

Syncope or arrhythmias of unknown origin

After several clinical tests, the cause of the loss of consciousness may remain known. Performing a genetic study can be conclusive.

Epilepsy of unknown etiology

Epilepsy can be the result of a cardiac arrhythmia. Cardiological clinical tests are recommended to rule out an inherited arrhythmia, and to consider a genetic study if this possibility is confirmed.

Cardiovascular risk panels

Family history of cardiovascular disease.

Hereditary factors may be determinant in familial predisposition to coronary heart disease and sudden death.

Panels of hypercholesterolemia

Hypercholesterolemia may be responsible for cardiovascular disease and heart attacks at a very young age.

Thrombosis / thrombophilia panels

Thrombosis of unknown origin.
Recurrent abortions.

Cancer panels

The detection of genetic variants in the tumor allows the adoption of precision treatments to improve survival and quality of life.
