Several laboratories both within the United States and worldwide, offer clinical genetic testing for many of the ARVC/D-associated genes. These tests vary in price, number of genes screened, and technology used. Clinical genetic testing is available for ARVC/D-associated genes. Mutations in these eight genes account for ARVC/D in 40-50% of patients screened.
We are happy to work with you, your physicians, and your insurance company in understanding the risks, benefits, and limitations of genetic testing in your specific situation. There are many research laboratories that offer testing on a research basis, however, many of these labs are unable to provide results or require clinical confirmation of a research result.
The University of Arizona ARVC/D Program, as well as the electrophysiology professional societies, strongly recommend that patients meet with a genetic counselor prior to any testing to discuss the benefits, risks, and limitations of genetic testing. Interpretation of genetic test results for ARVC/D can be quite complex. Genetic counselors can be found through the National Society of Genetic Counselors.
