Good question: You might want to discuss this matter further with a cardiologist. I don't know of any specific genes that have been implicated as a cause of angina. However, a family history of heart diease, high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated lipids and smoking are all risk factors for heart diease including angina. It is possible that genetic factors could put an individual at higher risk for this problem.
