SNOWALL, Abel; SILVA, Isis; ILLNAIT, José  and  CASTANO, Gladys. Factores de riesgo aterogénicos en pacientes normocolesterolémicos. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.5, pp.455-460. ISSN 0864-2125.

The objective of the present paper is to know the possible interdependence of some atherogenic risk factors with the atherosclerotic vascular disease under conditions of normal quantities of lipids. Among 332 patients with 2 or more risk factors, 158 with normal levels of cholesterol were detected. Data on different risk factors, including personal pathological histories of cardiac, cerebral or peripheral atherosclerotic vascular disease were registered. The frequency of the main risk factors (arterial hypertension and smoking habit) was studied in patients who had suffered from some of these diseases and, on the contrary, the frequency with which these pathologies were reported in the patients grouped according to these risk factors was analyzed. It was proved that arterial hypertension was interrelated to the cardiovascular disease and that women seem to be more sensitive to the smoking habit
