Why get tested?
Cardiovascular risk factors are specific conditions that are statistically related to cardiovascular disease and which are therefore believed to contribute to its pathogenesis.
The identification of patients with medium and high cardiovascular risk allows to take preventive actions from a young age, to arrange close checks and personalized therapies.
The sequence variations in the identified genes can predispose to an altered activity of the blood circulation and a consequent limited functional capacity of the heart.
What the test detects
The tests allow to identify, in the investigated genes, small sequence variants such as: single nucleotide changes, insertions and deletions of a few base pairs.
How testing works
The genetic test consists in performing a blood sample, in the extraction of genomic DNA and in the analysis of the entire coding sequence and related exon / intron junctions of different genes, in relation to the specific clinical phenotype. The analysis is conducted with NGS technology.
