Resumen

Objective. To study the blood levels of a group of lipids and lipoproteins in patients with ischemic cerebrovascular disease which was not secondary to cardiac embolic disease. Patients and methods. We assessed 40 patients of an average age of 64.5 years. Of these, 26 had cerebral infarcts due to disease of the great vessels and 14 had lacunar infarcts. Forty persons with no cerebrovascular disease were used as controls. We excluded patients diagnosed as having renal failure, liver, hematological, neoplastic and acute febrile disorders. Plasma was analyzed for total cholesterol, triglycerides, lipoproteins (a), HDL, LDL, VLDL and apoprotein B between 3 weeks and 6 months after the initial stroke. Results and conclusions. Levels of triglycerides and of lipoprotein (a) were significantly greater in patients than in controls. We found no differences between the levels of total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, VLDL in the three groups studied. However, apoprotein B was greater in the controls than in the patients. There were no significant differences between the groups with lacunar ictus and those with infarcts secondary to disease of the great vessels.
