Clinical Information

Due to its strong atherogenicity, sdLDL is a meaningful and independent risk factor for the development and progression of atherosclerosis. The extent of coronary heart disease correlates significantly with the sdLDL value. Compared to LDL, sdLDL is a better predictor of cardiovascular events. sdLDL can be significantly elevated despite normal LDL. Independent from the LDL value and other parameters used in basic cardiovascular diagnostics, the predominance of sdLDL (>50% LDL portion) has been associated with a 3 to 7-fold greater risk of myocardial infarction.
