Clinical validity


The detection rate of the Pan Cardiomyopathy Panel is approximately 35% for HCM, ~37% for DCM and ~50% for ARVC. The detection rate for the other cardiomyopathies remains unknown.

Testing strategy


Inherited cardiomyopathies are a group of genetically heterogeneous cardiac diseases with a relatively high population frequency, association with sudden cardiac death, and substantial genetic component. Familial inheritance is common and typically follows an autosomal dominant pattern, though all other forms of inheritance exist. The predominant forms are hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), followed by arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy and left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC).
