  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We examined serum lipid profiles in 22 patients with vasoocclusive retinal disorders. The series comporised branch retinal vein occlusion 13 cases, central retinal vein occlusion 3, branch retinal artery occlusion 4 and central retinal artery occlusion 2. Another series of 49 healthy persons served as control. The patients showed significantly higher levels of serum triglyceride, apoprotein B and E than in controls. Lipoprotein a failed to show significant changes. The findings indicate that the arteriosclerotic index as assessed by lipoprotein levels excepting lipoprotein a serves as an indicator of fibrinolysis related to risk factors in vasoocclusive retinal diseases.
