Relative familial clustering of cerebral versus coronary ischemic events.
BACKGROUND: Few population-based studies have ascertained both cerebral and coronary events or considered their relative heritability. Differences in heritability of transient ischemic attack and ischemic stroke versus acute coronary syndromes (ACS) may inform risk prediction, genetic studies, and understanding of disease mechanisms. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a population-based study of all acute vascular events, irrespective of age, we studied family history of myocardial infarction (MI), stro...Expand abstract
