  1. Cholesterol screening and family history of vascular disease.

    Article - En anglais

    Hypercholesterolaemia is a major risk factor for the development of coronary heart disease (CHD).

    Early detection and management of hypercholesterolaemia could retard the atherosclerotic process.

    Given that CHD and hypercholesterolaemia cluster within families, a screening strategy based on a family history of vascular disease has been advocated.

    Serum total cholesterol concentrations were measured in a random stratified sample of 1012 children aged from 12-15 years old participating in a coronary risk factor surveillance study in Northern Ireland.
