Many of the acute cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death are caused by genetic factors. In particular,
hereditary heart disease due to genetic factors has a higher risk of acute cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac
death at younger age.
Remarkable point is that when asked about disease history, the acute cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac
death patients, about 45% have not had had any previous history with cardiovascular diseases, and 40%
had very minor cardiac symptoms in the past. This may indicate that acute cardiac arrest and sudden
cardiac death is genetic in its nature.
Genetic cardiovascular disease can screen high-risk acute cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death group
and allow intervention and management through early diagnostics and monitoring, helping prepare an
is a NGS (next generation sequencing) based genetic test for genes that can cause
genetic heart diseases to screen high acute cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death risk group.
To maximize diagnostic efficacy and utility, the service is divided into two versions, proactive and
diagnostic: proactive screens for clinical evidence based, frequently found mutations with well-established
association; diagnostic includes, in addition to mutations tested by proactive, additional genes that
cause heart diseases only being recently suggested by newer studies.
tests for most of acute cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death related diseases and include the following diseases.
SD Genomics performs genetic tests to the requests of medical institutes following the Bioethics and Safety Act. Prior to service request,
understanding the objective of the test, reporting method of the test, and limitations of the test is necessary.
|Required Documents||Test Requirement and Consent form (provided below)|
|TAT||Within 4-6 weeks|
|Report Criteria||Positive : When genetic variants that are likely to cause diseases are found|
|Negative : When genetic variants that are likely to cause diseases are not found|
|Uncertain: When genetic variants are found, but is not possible to be interpreted due to current level of medicine (When requesting institute has supplied with phenotype information)|
