Background Genetic factors play a role in the onset of coronary artery disease. The objective of our study is to evaluate the single locus and combined effects of three different genetic polymorphisms (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T polymorphism, plasminogen activator inhibitor 4G/5G polymorphism, and endothelial nitric oxide synthase 3-27 base pairs repeat polymorphism) on the presence and extent of coronary artery disease in patients with early-onset coronary artery disease.
