Coronary heart disease and myocardial infarction in young men and women

  by Raza Akhtar,    Last updated on June 4, 2018,

Although coronary heart disease (CHD) primarily occurs in patients over the age of 40, younger men and women can be affected. Most studies have used an age cut-off of 40 to 45 years to define "young" patients with CHD or acute myocardial infarction (MI). The same age definition will be used in this review.
