Keywords: stroke risk factors, hyperlipidemia


An important risk factor for artherosclerosis, and consequently, for ischaemic heart disease and ischaemic cerebral stroke, consists in metabolic disorders of lipoproteins and lipids. Hyperlipidemias are divided into several types, depending on genetic and environmental factors. In addition to lipids level monitoring, prevention includes sensible diet, physical exercise, and abstinence from tobacco smoking. (Eds.)
