[A four-year prospective study on the influence of serum elevated lipoprotein (a) concentration on ischemic heart disease and cerebral infarction in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes].

Abstract

To clarify the influence of elevated serum lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)) concentration on ischemic heart disease (IHD) and the perforating artery occlusion type of cerebral infarction (CI) in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes, we measured the serum levels of Lp(a) of type 2 diabetic patients (n = 158, 81 men and 77 women).
