TO_AITION new publication (UMCU)

Prof. Gerard Pasterkamp and Dr. Sander W. van der Laan, from partner UMC Utrecht published with colleagues a very interesting study in the European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery.


LPL appears to have different time-dependent risk patterns for Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events (MACE).

Post Surgery High LPL concentrations show:

⬆ High risk for MACE in the first 30 days

⬇ Low risk for MACE from 30days-3 years

Therefore, LPL in pre-operative plasma samples may be considered as a predictor for higher perioperative risk for MACE and for a lower long-term risk for MACE.
