Abstract

This article presents an overview of clinical and molecular genetics of myocardial infarction (MI). Discussion includes the partial overlapping of risk factors for myocardial infarction and atherosclerosis, the impact of a positive family history on the risk of MI, the " familial" nongenetic, environmental factors, the inherited risk associated with the low-dose input of many genes, and a simple approach to stratify the individual risk in genetic counseling.
