Familial SCAD linked to aggregation of common genetic variants

Researchers reported that high concentrations of common genetic variants within families were associated with increased inherited risk for spontaneous coronary artery dissection.
Rarer genes associated with inherited connective tissue disorders were not associated with spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) risk, according to data published in JAMA Cardiology.
“In the last 5 years, our understanding of SCAD genetics has developed rapidly. Beginning in 2019, common variants were identified, and the first polygenic risk score (PRS) for SCAD was reported. … Recent data highlight the
