Aim: First-degree relatives of patients who have had an acute myocardial infarction prior to age of 55 years have 2-7 times the risk that their peers have. The aim of this study was to investigate some haemostatic and inflammatory markers, in children whose parents had early onset (< 55 years) coronary artery disease (CAD), and whether those markers were effective to show CAD risk.
