Apo(a) phenotyping and long-term prognosis for coronary artery disease.


Objectives Identify whether the plasma concentration of Lp(a), apo(a) size or a greater affinity for fibrin predict the likelihood of cardiac death, non-fatal myocardial infarction, unstable angina, the need for additional revascularization, and stroke (MACCE). Design and methods We analyzed the clinical prognosis of 68 patients with coronary artery disease included in a case-controlled study which evaluated Lp(a) concentration, apo(a) size, and Lp(a) fibrin-binding. Cohort was conducted over a median of 8 years. We used Kaplan–Meier survival tables to evaluate cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events in the follow-up period. Results Apo(a) isoforms of small size are predictors of MACCE. We find an association between Lp(a) concentration and apo(a) fibrin-binding with major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events, although without statistically significant results. Conclusions Small-sized apo(a) isoforms are an independent risk factor for MACCE in patients with coronary artery disease in follow-up. Lp(a) plasma concentration and apo(a) fibrin-binding were associated, although not significant.
