Objective-Within the last few years a number of thrombophilic mutations have been identified. Pre-symptomatic testing for these established genetic risk factors identifies individuals predisposed to a disease and often allows to select suitable prophylactic interventions in time. We investigated wether or not the prothrombin G20210A allele, the factor V Leiden G1691A, and MTHFR C677T allele are risk factors for left ventricular thrombus (LV) in patients with myocardial infarction (AMI) or not.
