Resumen

CABALE VILARINO, María Beatriz; TORRES CABRERA, Maritza B.; HERES ALVAREZ, Flor  y  GONZALEZ GRECK, Omar. Lipoproten (a) as a risk factor independent of the atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Rev cubana med [online]. 2004, vol.43, n.2-3. ISSN 0034-7523.

In order to investigate the function of lipoprotein (a) as an independent risk factor in different cardiovascular processes, its values were determined in 50 subjects with no coronary arterial disease and in 92 ischemic patients. The concentrations of total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides and VLDL were determined. Though the average concentrations of Lp(a) were higher in patients than in controls, significant differences were only obtained for the angina group (p=0.0368*). The aditional risk factors showing pathological values were total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and triglycerides with marked differences for the first two of p<0.05 and p<0.01. It was concluded that in our study lipoprotein(a) was a risk factor independent of cardiovascular disease. Therefore, its determination should be included in the clinical practices.

Palabras clave : Lp(a); atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease; cholesterol; lipids.
