    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Symposium "Clinical Significance and Management of Hypertriglyceridemia". Dallas, TX, USA, 1998/11/09.

    Epidemiologic studies provide increasing evidence that hypertriglyceridemia is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

    A meta-analysis of 17 population-based studies of triglyceride levels and cardiovascular disease identified a 76% increase in cardiovascular disease risk in women and a 31% increase in men associated with a 1 mmol/L increase in triglyceride levels.

    Additional epidemiologic studies have snown that plasma triglyceride levels and low-density lipoprotein particle size predict subsequent coronary artery disease.

    Taken together, the existing epidemiologic data may help identi a group of patients who may benefit from interventions aimed at decreasing triglyceride levels associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
