Within the past decade our understanding of thromboembolic disorders has become even more sophisticated as recent discoveries have suggested the influence of gene variants on the development of atherosclerotic disease and arterial thrombosis. Candidate genes encode proteins involved in processes relevant to atherosclerosis, ranging from cholesterol metabolism to arterial thrombosis. Platelets are key elements in primary hemostasis, but also in arterial thrombosis. Moreover, a number of genetic… CONTINUE READING
