BACKGROUND A number of reports have investigated the association between various gene polymorphisms and the phenotypic expression of myocardial infarction. No investigations have evaluated the prognostic role of genetic factors in young people with premature coronary disease. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of genetic factors compared with that of conventional risk factors on follow-up events in a population of Italian young adults with myocardial infarction.
