I am Dr. Salik ur Rehman, Fellow College of Physicians & Surgerons, Pakistan (FCPS) curently an Instructor in adult Cardiology at the Aga Khan University hospital, Karachi, Pakistan. My area of interest in Premature Coronary Artery Disease (PMCAD) which algthough is quite prevalent in this part of the world, is quite unexplored. As South Asians (SAs) are at an elevated risk for PMCAD due to genetic and environmental risk factors, the mean ages of SAs are much younger to what are seen internationally. If we are able to modify the risk factors in our population, we will save many bread winners to suffer through a catastrophe.
