BACKGROUND Genomewide association studies have led to an enormous boost in the identification of susceptibility genes for cardiovascular diseases. This review aims to summarize the most important findings of recent years. CONTENT We have carefully reviewed the current literature (PubMed search terms: "genome wide association studies," "genetic polymorphism," "genetic risk factors," "association study" in connection with the respective diseases, "risk score," "transcriptome").
