In brief: Probably not

I'm wondering if "valves" should be "coronary arteries".
This sort of heart problem usually isn't genetic or familial, but the result of lifestyle, primarily tobacco, diet, exercise, obesity. If diabetes, keep it in good control. There are exceptions, however; if any doubt, discuss with your doctor or your dad's.
