Abstract

Myocardial infarction (MI) in the young provides a unique model for the investigation of potential interactions between atherosclerotic and prothrombotic coronary risk factors. Factor V Leiden gene mutation, the underlying cause of activated protein C resistance, is the commonest cause for venous thrombosis. It is still not clear whether there is any relationship between this genetic defect and arterial thrombosis. We have studied the prevalence of factor V Leiden mutation in a selective group of young patients with myocardial infarction (MI), aged
