In brief: Genes and lifestyle

Coronary thrombus is a clot in an artery that feeds the heart.
Anything that damages or roughens the lining of the blood vessels could result in clot formation, such as elevated cholesterol and hypertension. Risk factors include family history of heart disease, being male, increasing age, elevated cholesterol or ldl, obesity, smoking, and being sedentary.
