ARVGP - Overview: Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy Multi-Gene Panel, Blood

Test Catalog

Test Name

Test ID: ARVGP    
Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy Multi-Gene Panel, Blood

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Providing a comprehensive genetic evaluation for patients with a personal or family history suggestive of hereditary arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC or AC)


Establishing a diagnosis of ARVC or AC, and in some cases, allowing for appropriate management and surveillance for disease features based on the gene involved


Identifying a pathogenic variant within a gene known to be associated with disease that allows for predictive testing of at-risk family members

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct genetic test or proper submission of the test request

This test includes next-generation sequencing and supplemental Sanger sequencing to evaluate the genes tested on this panel.


Prior Authorization is available for this assay; see Special Instructions.


Targeted testing for familial variants (also called site-specific or known mutation testing) is available for all genes on this panel; see KVAR1 / Known Variant Analysis-1 Variant. Contact Mayo Medical Laboratories to confirm the appropriate test code for targeted testing if testing for a gene not included on this panel, or if testing for more than 1 variant is needed.


This test uses next-generation sequencing to test for variants in the DES, DSC2, DSG2, DSP, JUP, LMNA, PKP2, RYR2, TMEM43, and TTN (excluding the following genomic regions: Chr2(GRCh37):g. 179523879-179524002 and Chr2(GRCh37):g. 179523712-179523835) genes.


Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling.
