Families Could Benefit From Gene Tests in Sudden Cardiac Death Victims
Date:11/15/2009

linic, Rochester, Minn., said in a news release.

"If you identify a mutation in a sudden unexplained death victim, you can do a simple genetic test in first-degree relatives to assess their risk and perform a disorder-directed clinical evaluation rather than a full clinical evaluation. If a relative is negative for the causative mutation, they may not need to undergo further clinical evaluation at all, and that saves money," Tester explained.

The study was to be presented Sunday at the American Heart Association's annual meeting in Orlando, Fla.

More information

The U.S. National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute has more about sudden cardiac arrest.
