To evaluate the relationship between coronary artery disease(CAD) and the various levels of lipid and lipoproteins; we performed coronary angiography to the patient; who were suspected coronary artery disease from January 1988 to August 1989. And compared it with normal control group. The number of control group were 41(21 men; 20 women); and the patient group were 52(42 men; 10 women). The age was not differ between two groups. The results were as follows; 1. In CAD group; the plasma concentration of total lipid; triglyceride; total cholesterol; phosphlipid; and TC/HDL ratio were; significantly higher than in control group. But; though; the concentration of HDL was lower in CAD group; had no significant difference between two groups. 2. The severity of CAD were well correlated with total lipid; cholesterol; LDL; trigylceride; phospholipid; TC/HDL; LDL/HDL levels. HDL level didnt's show significant correlation with the degree of CAD. We concluded that total lipid; cholesterol; trigylceride TC/LDL ratio were valuable markers of CAD in Korean; but futher studies of lipoproteins and other risk factors in the large population will be recommended.
