Prevalence and Distribution of Femoral Atheromas in Human Hyperlipoproteinemia, Type II and IV
The prevalence of femoral atherosclerotic lesions in Type II and Type IV hyperlipoproteinemia has been determined by performing Limited Femoral Angiography in 18 Type II and 10 Type IV patients attending a clinic for therapy of hyperlipoproteinemia. Patients studied were those willing to volunteer for femoral angiography as an experimental procedure for determination of lesion prevalence and possible guide to evaluation of their therapy. Written informed consent was obtained from all prior to angiography.
