In brief: Yes; permanent chanc

One of the biggest risk factors for a heart attack in the future is having experienced a heart attack already.
Thus, once you have a heart attack, you confirm that you have atherosclerosis (thickening of the vessel walls), and that leads to (9) a permanent increease in risk.
