Lipoprotein lipase in aortic valve stenosis is associated with lipid retention and remodelling.

BACKGROUND Calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD) is a chronic disorder characterized by a fibrocalcific remodelling. It is suspected that lipid retention within the aortic valve may be one important mechanism participating to aortic valve remodelling. Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is implicated in lipid metabolism and may play a role in lipid retention within the… CONTINUE READING
