During the last two decades, the area of Cardiovascular Medicine has presented considerable advances regarding invasive and pharmacological therapies, trying to reduce cardiovascular complications and death rates. However, the diagnosis of early-stage cardiovascular disease is still challenging. Genome Wide Analysis Studies is our new tool aiming to identify candidate genes and their variants that are associated to hypercholesterolemia, atherosclerotic plaque progression and platelet dysfunction. This is a brief review describing the key points of these biomedical efforts.
