Cardiovascular diseases

Predictive genetic testing of heart diseases is the use of a genetic test in an asymptomatic person to predict future risk of developing a heart disease. These tests represent a new and growing class of medical approaches, differing in fundamental ways from conventional medical diagnostic tests. The hope underlying such testing is that early identification of individuals at risk for a specific cardiovascular condition will lead to reduced morbidity and mortality through targeted screening, surveillance, and prevention. These types of tests are used to detect gene mutations associated with heart diseases that usually manifest after birth, often later in life.
