Is hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease hereditary?

Possibly. Hypertension may have many causes, even in the same person. Some of these may be hereditary.
May be. Hypertension run in families. I am not sure, if there is a known genetic correlation to call it as hereditary. When genetic science improves, we may call it as hereditary. Bot, for now, there is an association between hypertension and blood relatives.

Yes it can be. Yes it can be hereditary and this is not considered in framingham risk score. I would recommend a coronary calcium screening in women over 50years and men over 40years with at least one risk factor (family history is a risk factor). Read more...
Partially. ASCVD is multifactorial and there is an element of luck besides the predisposition to this. If your mom was over 65 when she developed this disease it is much less a risk factor than had she developed it at an early age. At the end of the day it is just one of the risk factors. The others are: being male getting older smoking hypertension diabetes hyperlipidemia obesity sedentary lifestyle. Read more...
