Abstract

Over the past 20 years, a link between lipoprotein disorders and atherosclerosis, and its clinical manifestations of myocardial infarction, stroke, and sudden cardiac death, has been conclusively demonstrated. This article reviews lipoprotein metabolism, its pathophysiology, describes an approach for the management of patients with lipid disorders and discusses therapy using the ATP III guidelines.
