Pricing Comments

CPT codes 81413 and 81414 can be used if at least 10 genes (including ANK2, CASQ2, CAV3, KCNE1, KCNE2, KCNH2, KCNJ2, KCNQ1, RYR1, and SCN5A) are analyzed. We are happy to accommodate requests for testing single genes in this panel or a subset of these genes. The price will remain the list price. If desired, free reflex testing to remaining genes on panel is available. Alternatively, a single gene or subset of genes can also be ordered via our PGxome Custom Panel tool.

An additional 25% charge will be applied to STAT orders. STAT orders are prioritized throughout the testing process.

For Reflex to PGxome pricing click here.

Turnaround Time

18 days on average for standard orders or 14 days on average for STAT orders.

Once a specimen has started the testing process in our lab, the most accurate prediction of TAT will be displayed in the myPrevent portal as an Estimated Report Date (ERD) range. We calculate the ERD for each specimen as testing progresses; therefore the ERD range may differ from our published average TAT. View more about turnaround times here.

Clinical Features and Genetics

Clinical Features

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a disorder in which the sudden cessation of cardiac activity leads to hemodynamic collapse. SCA happens quickly with little warning. Rapid treatment with a defibrillator can be lifesaving. SCA contributes significantly to morbidity and mortality in the general population (Mozaffarian et al. 2015). Most SCA cases (70-80%) are attributed to coronary heart disease (CHD); 10-15% are associated with nonischemic cardiomyopathy disease; approximately 5% are caused by arrhythmic disorders with no heart structural defects (Chugh et al. 2008). Identification of genetic factors associated with SCA contributes to the diagnosis, risk stratification and prevention (Refaat et al. 2015).


Genetic studies in affected families have indicated that inherited cardiac disorders are associated with sudden cardiac arrest (Noseworthy et al. 2008). These disorders involve structural cardiac disease (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, and arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy) and arrhythmogenic syndromes without structural abnormalities (such as long QT syndrome and Brugada syndrome) (Bezzina et al. 2015). Sudden cardiac arrest is a group of heterogenic disorders and can be autosomal dominant (AD), autosomal recessive (AR), or both. The majority of cardiac-related genes in this panel are associated with autosomal dominant disorders. The CASQ2 gene is associated with autosomal recessive cardiac-related disorders. The DSC2, DSP, JUP, KCNE1, KCNQ1, LMNA, TNNI3, and TTN genes are associated with autosomal dominant and recessive disorders (OMIM; Human Gene Mutation Database). See individual gene test descriptions for information on molecular biology of gene products.

Clinical Sensitivity - Sequencing with CNV PGxome

Pathogenic variants may be detected in 10~30% of cases, depending on clinical setting, family history and associated cardiac disorder phenotype (Hertz et al. 2015; McGorrian et al. 2013).

Gross deletions or duplications have been reported in CACNB2, CAV3, DES, DSP, GPD1L, KCNH2, KCNJ2, KCNQ1, RYR2 and SCN5A as individual cases (Human Gene Mutation Database).

Testing Strategy

This test is performed using Next-Gen sequencing with additional Sanger sequencing as necessary.

This panel typically provides 99.5% coverage of all coding exons of the genes plus 10 bases of flanking noncoding DNA in all available transcripts along with other non-coding regions in which pathogenic variants have been identified at PreventionGenetics or reported elsewhere. We define coverage as ≥20X NGS reads or Sanger sequencing.

Since this test is performed using exome capture probes, a reflex to any of our exome based tests is available (PGxome, PGxome Custom Panels).

Indications for Test

All patients with symptoms suggestive of possible sudden cardiac arrest are candidates for this test.
