[Stroke and cardiovascular disease related with hypertriglyceridemia].

Study Abstract

The importance of dyslipidemia, especially elevated serum levels of cholesterol, as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease is established. The specific role of triglycerides (TG) has long been controversial. Recent large cohort studies have uncovered that higher serum TG levels are independently associated with coronary heart disease(CHD), myocardial infarction and stroke. Non-fasting TG levels have been shown to be associated with cardiovascular disease as well, suggesting that remnant lipoproteins may play a critical role for the development of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
