Test ID: HCMGP    
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Multi-Gene Panel, Blood

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 hereditary hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)

 

Establishing a diagnosis of a hereditary HCM, and in some cases, allowing for appropriate management and surveillance for disease features based on the gene involved

 

Identifying a pathogenic variant within a gene known to be associated with disease that allows 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 and supplemental Sanger sequencing to evaluate the genes tested on this panel.

 

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

Highlights

This test uses next-generation sequencing to test for variants in the ACTC1, ACTN2, ANKRD1, CAV3, CSRP3, DES, GLA, LAMP2, MYBPC3, MYH7, MYL2, MYL3, MYLK2, MYOZ2, NEXN, PLN, PRKAG2, RAF1, TCAP, TNNC1, TNNI3, TNNT2, TPM1, TTN (excluding the following genomic regions: Chr2(GRCh37):g. 179523879-179524002 and Chr2(GRCh37):g. 179523712-179523835), TTR, and VCL genes.

 

This test uses Sanger sequencing to test for variants in exon 27 of the MYH7 gene.

 

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