Test Catalog

Test ID: MFRGP    
Marfan Syndrome and Related Disorders Multi-Gene Panel, Varies

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Providing a comprehensive genetic evaluation for patients with a personal or family history suggestive of Marfan syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome, thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissections, or a related disorder

 

Second-tier testing for patients in whom previous targeted gene variant analyses for specific Marfan and related genes were negative

 

Establishing a diagnosis of a Marfan or a related disorder in some cases, allowing for appropriate management and surveillance for aneurysms and other disease features based on the gene involved

 

Identifying variants within genes known to be associated with increased risk for aneurysms and other disease features allowing for predictive testing of at-risk family members

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct genetic test or proper submission of the test request

This test includes next-generation sequencing (NGS) and supplemental Sanger sequencing to evaluate for variants in the ACTA2, CBS, COL3A1, COL5A1, COL5A2, FBN1, FBN2, FLNA, MFAP5, MYH11, MYLK, NOTCH1, PRKG1, SKI, SLC2A10, SMAD3, SMAD4, TGFB2, TGFB3, TGFBR1, and TGFBR2 genes. Additionally, NGS is used to test for the presence of large deletions and duplications in a subset of genes.

 

Prior Authorization is available for this assay; see Special Instructions.

Highlights

This test uses next-generation sequencing with copy number variation analysis to test for variants in the ACTA2, CBS, COL3A1, COL5A1, COL5A2, FBN1, FBN2, FLNA, MFAP5, MYH11, MYLK, NOTCH1, PRKG1, SKI, SLC2A10, SMAD3, SMAD4, TGFB2, TGFB3, TGFBR1, and TGFBR2 genes.

 

This test may aid in the diagnosis of Marfan syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome, familial thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection (TAAD), or a related disorder.

 

Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling.
