The amount of cross-sectional area (XSA) narrowing in each 5 mm long segment of each of the four major epicardial coronary arteries was determined in each of five patients with type III hyperlipoproteinemia (HLP) and symptomatic, fatal atherosclerotic coronary disease (CAD). Four had angina pectoris; two had acute myocardial infarcts which healed, and two died suddenly. Of the four major epicardial coronary arteries, all four were narrowed 76% to 100% in XSA by atherosclerotic plaques in two… CONTINUE READING
