Abstract

This guideline describes the approach and expertise needed for the genetic evaluation of cardiomyopathy. First published in 2009 by the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA), this guidance has now been updated in collaboration with the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG). The writing group, composed of cardiologists and genetics professionals with expertise in adult and pediatric cardiomyopathy, reflects the emergence and increased clinical activity devoted to cardiovascular genetic medicine. The genetic evaluation of cardiomyopathy is a rapidly emerging key clinical priority, as high throughput sequencing is now feasible for clinical testing, and conventional interventions can improve survival, reduce morbidity, and enhance quality of life. Moreover, specific interventions may be guided by genetic analysis. A systematic approach is recommended: always a comprehensive family history; an expert phenotypic evaluation of the proband and at-risk family members to confirm a diagnosis and guide genetic test selection and interpretation; referral to expert centers as needed; genetic testing, with pre- and post-test genetic counseling; and specific guidance as indicated for drug and device therapies. The evaluation of infants and children demands special expertise. The approach to manage secondary and incidental sequence findings as recommended by the ACMG is provided.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 36. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 February 2020.
All research outputs
#708,054
of 17,658,188 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Cardiac Failure
#43
of 1,362 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#20,905
of 287,363 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Cardiac Failure
#2
of 12 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,658,188 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,362 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.6. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 287,363 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 12 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its contemporaries.
