Abstract

Many patients who undergo intense modification of risk factors still develop adverse cardiovascular events. This calls for a need to develop newer approaches to uncover their risk status. In this context, we have come across several studies in the past two decades about the importance of lipoprotein(a) in the lipid profile. The initial enthusiasm has not led to the subsequent clarification of its role, and controversies plague its importance to date. In this brief review, recent evidence for considering lipoprotein(a) as an emerging coronary risk factor has been analyzed.
