Abstract: Lp(a) plays a role in the atherosclerotic process and several retrospective studies have indicated that elevated Lp(a) concentrations are a strong independent risk factor for premature heart disease, cerebrovascular and peripheral vascular disease and early occlusion of coronary artery bypass grafts and femoropopliteal vein grafts. However, mean and median Lp(a) levels vary considerably among populations.
