Although a classic history of angina is the most sensitive predictor of coronary artery disease, the presence of hyperlipidemia is also being used to predict this disease. To establish the value of the Fredrickson types for predicting the presence of coronary artery disease in patients with chest pain syndromes, 947 consecutive patients undergoing coronary arteriography had postabsorptive serum cholesterol, triglyceride, and lipoprotein electrophoresis measurements to establish their presumptive lipoprotein classification. Patients were typed by criteria employed by the National Center for Disease Control as having type IIA, type IIB, type IV, or no lipid abnormality.
There were 631 patients with
