Table 3 Family history of premature CVD events (MI/ischemic stroke in men aged < 55 years and in women aged < 65 years) in the studied groups: patients with MI aged < 50 years (MI < 50), patients with MI aged MI ≥50 years (MI ≥50) and and young people without history of MI/CAD aged < 50 years (no-MI < 50)

From: Younger age of patients with myocardial infarction is associated with a higher number of relatives with a history of premature atherosclerosis
