Abstract

Purpose. The role of hyperlipidemia in atherosclerotic changes of the carotid artery is controversial. The aims of this retrospective study were to assess (1) the relationship between total serum cholesterol and triglyceride and the grade of internal carotid artery stenosis and (2) whether total serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels are independent risk factors for internal carotid artery atherosclerosis. Methods. The files of 1,934 acute ischemic stroke patients were investigated retrospectively. The atherosclerotic involvement of the internal carotid artery was assessed via duplex sonography as percent of stenosis and was graded as follows: group 1, no plaque; group 2,
