People with family members who at a young age had heart attacks or unstable angina -- a condition in which the heart does not get enough blood -- are considered at increased risk and should be more closely monitored by their doctors, said Dr. Aref Amro, an interventional cardiologist at Doctors Hospital.
"Family history is a very important risk factor for heart disease," he said.
Any type of serious cardiovascular event in a person's 40s and 50s (or earlier) is considered a sign that the problem is something they might have passed along to their children, Amro said.
Anyone with immediate family members who have had coronary artery disease should be aware of symptoms, including chest pain and shortness of breath, Amro said. Risk factors, such as high cholesterol, should be lowered with lifestyle changes and medication if necessary, he said.
"They need really to take extra precautions in order to make sure they don't end up with similar circumstances like their family members," he said.
Amro recalled a patient who suffered a heart attack in his early 50s. He was a postal carrier who walked as many as 15 miles a day, didn't smoke and had normal blood pressure.
"He could not come to grips with how such a healthy individual gets a heart attack. I think the only (answer) for him is a family history," Amro said.

"This was a very successful educational event that we were most excited to make available for healthcare professionals in our region, presenting them with up-to-date medical information that we hope will advance the care provided to the citizens in our community and surrounding counties", said Aref Amro, MD, Program Director and Interventional Cardiologist at Adena Health System. "Having a state-of-the art facility, such as the PACCAR Medical Education Center, is quite a drawing card for our region as a unique educational venue that is among some of the most modern in the country. The opportunities we are now able to provide for continuing education in our region are quite impressive and we are looking forward to providing more programs in the future."
According to Dr. Amro, the symposium was attended by physicians from surrounding medical facilities as far as Genesis Health System in Zanesville, Holzer Medical Center in Gallipolis, Southern Ohio Medical Center in Portsmouth, and Berger Medical Center in Circleville.
