|Abstract:||High lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) has been observed in patients with ischemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. Lp(a) is actually thought to be an independent risk factor for coronary disease. We therefore carried out a case-control study, evaluating plasma Lp(a) in 61 patients with angiographically documented peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and in 61 age- and sex-matched patients with no cardiovascular disease. General risk factors for vascular disease were also taken into account. Lp(a) was significantly higher in patients than controls (257.0+-34.8 vs 146.5+-23.5 mg/l, p lt 0.05), as were cigarette smoking, diabetes, cholesterolemia, fibrinogenemia and the waist-to-hip circumference ratio. Stepwise logistic regression analysis showed that, in addition to cigarette smoking, diabetes, cholesterol and fibrinogen, Lp(a) is a significant independent risk indicator for PAD. This result suggests that high plasma Lp(a) is associated with enhanced risk of PAD and must therefore be evaluated alongside traditional risk factors.|
