Lipid and lipoprotein levels as well as certain other risk factors were studied in 35 patients with arteriosclerosis obliterans (confirmed by angiographic and operative examination). Seventy-two asymptomatic normal subjects sevred as controls. The mean serum total cholesterol and triglyceride levels in control subjects were 168±31 mg/dl and 144±81 mg/dl respectively. In patients with arteriosclerosis obliterans, these values were 191±44 mg/dl, and 183±76 mg/dl. Significant differences existed in the mean serum total cholesterol and triglyceride levels between two groups. The mean LDL-cholesterol, Apo-B levels were significantly higher in patients than in controls. HDL-cholesterol and Apo-A1 levels were signifiantly lower in patients than in controls. Patients with arteriosclerosis obliterans were characterized as follows: 77 % were smokers, 37 % were hypertensive, 14 % were obese, and 5.7 % had diabetes. The HDL-C levels were significantly lower in controls who smoked than in non-smoking control subjects; this may indirectly explain the reduced HDL ratio in patients with obstructive peripheral vascular disease, most of whom were smokers.
