Diagnostic genetic testing and a comprehensive cardiac examination
Comprehensive cardiac examination and predictive genetic testing for detection of inherited diseases of the cardiovascular system – Diagnostic genetic tests, include:
- clinical examination, 12-channel electrocardiogram, ultrasound of the heart, and ergometry if necessary , 24-hour continuous monitoring and recording of cardiac activity (blood pressure Holter and ECG Holter)
- medical-biochemical laboratory diagnostics (KKS, DKS, Cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, VLDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, creatine kinase, NT pro-BNP, HS troponin)
- analysis of 294 genes ("multi-gene panel testing") and their mutations associated with conditions that lead to sudden cardiac death
Who is recommended to do a diagnostic genetic test and a comprehensive cardiac examination?
- People with a personal history or a family history of cardiovascular disease
- People with specific cardiovascular findings after clinical examination
- People with previous episodes of weakness or excessive fatigue that are not in line with the effort
