Primary electrical diseases such as long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, short QT syndrome and catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia are inherited disorders with a strong genetic basis (5).
The inherited cardiac channelopathies, including Long QT Syndrome (LQTS), Brugada Syndrome (BrS) and Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT), are the cause of death for over 30% of Sudden Unexplained Deaths (SUDS) and 10-15% of autopsy-negative Sudden Infant Deaths (SIDS).
The FAMILION tests detect genetic mutations that can cause cardiac channelopathies, such as Long QT Syndrome (LQTS), Brugada Syndrome (BrS) and Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT), or cardiomyopathies such as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) and Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC) in individuals and their families.
