Studies on Serum Lipids and Lipoproteins in Cerebrovascular Accidents

Abstract

The present study was undertaken to investigate the relationship between serum lipid and lipoprotein values and cerebrovascular accidents. Serum lipids and lipoproteins were measured in 130 cases of normal Korean, 49 patients with cerebrovascular accidents and 35 patients with uncomplicated essential hypertension. The results were summarized as follows; 1. The mean values of serum lipids in patients with cerebrovascular accidents were 148.3+/-75.3mg% for triglyceride, 189.6+/-37.4mg% for cholesterol, 132.5+/-55.2mg% for phospholipid and 548.8+/-106.3mg% for total lipid. 2. The mean values of serum lipoproteins in patients with cerebrovascular accidents were 255.3+/-81.6mg% for beta-lipoprotein, 118.3+/-73.7mg% for pre-beta-lipoprotein and 183.6+/-65.5mg% for alpha-lipoprotein. 3. There were no significant differences of sex and age in the mean values of serum lipids and lipoproteins in patients with cerebrovascular accidents. 4. In general the mean concentrations of serum lipids and lipoproteins, except phospholipid and alpha-lipoprotein, in patients with cerebrovascular accidents and hypertension were significantly elevated than in normal control subjects. 5. There were no significant differences in serum lipid and lipoprotein values between various types of cerebrocasculr accidents. 6. The change of serum lipid and lipoprotein values had a decreasing tendency till one month after onset, thereafter the values became similar to to\hose of early period of illness. 7. The incidence of hyperlipoproteinemia in patients with cerebrovascular accidents was 64%, and the most frequent type of hyperlipoproteinemia was Type IIa, as the frequency decreased in the order of Type IV, Type IIb and Type III.
