CABALE VILARINO, María Beatriz; SANCHEZ SERRANO, Daniel  e  FLORES SANCHEZ, Amaury. Lipid control in dyslipidemic patients: Its association with cardiovascular. Rev cubana med [online]. 2006, vol.45, n.3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-302X.

Although more than 200 risk factors have been identified, epidemiologic studies have proved that elevated cholesterol levels, particularly the LDL, are still the best established risk factor for the development of this disease. A prospective study of 270 patients seen at the Institute of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery was undertaken. All of them were determined total cholesterol concentrations, HDL, VLDL, LDL and triglycerides at the beginning and a year after treatmet. Patients were grouped according to the risk category of the National Education Cholesterol Program (NCEP). The LDL figures were controlled in 36.67 % of the participants. This control increased up to 50.0 and 68.97 % in individuals with risk category 2 and 3. The LDLs and the previous history of cardiovascular disease showed higher risk for cardiovascular disease. No significant difference was found (p= 0.97) between the control and non-control of the LDL figures. It was determined that at the year of treatment, there was a rise in the number of controlled patients, but this control was not related to the absence of manifestations of the cardiovascular atherosclerotic disease .
