Özet

Background: Hypercholesterolemia. is an important risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD) and is associated with impaired endothelial function, hypercoagulability, and increased platelet activation. The ability of statins to reduce the mortality and morbidity associated with CAD may not be due entirely to their lipid-lowering effects.
