HASSAN MOHAMMED EL-LABBAN


Abstract


This work was performed to detect the prevalence of Asymptomatic carotid atherosclerosis in dyslipidemic patients, with detection of the correlation between the blood lipid profile and its different lipoprotein values and the degree of carotid atherosclerosis, guided by measuring the carotid mean intimal medial thickness by using carotid duplex. Thirty of dys!ipidemic patients and ten of normal non lipidemic subjects were examined by using carotid duplex ultrasonography. They were classified into two groups: Group (A): Include 10 patients and normal subjects, non smoker (8 males & 2 females), random age subjects who had no dyslipidemia neither hypertension, diabetes, cerebro­ vascular accidents nor having clinical evidences of vasculitis. Group (B): Include 30 dyslipidemic patients ,non smoker (24 males & 6 females), random age subjects who have significant dyslipidemia with no history of hypertension, neither diabetes, cerebro- vascular accidents nor having clinical evidences ofvasculitis.
