OBJECTIVES To investigate the correlation between serum lipoprotein(a) concentration and existence as well as severity of coronary atherosclerosis. DESIGN AND METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted on 826 patients who underwent angiography through measuring blood sugar, serum lipids, lipoprotein(a) and evaluation of coronary stenosis by Gensini score. RESULTS Gensini score=6 was considered as a cut-off point for coronary disease and 40 mg/dL was determined as lipoprotein(a) cut-off… CONTINUE READING
