Objective: Coronary artery disease (CAD) risk increases with the elevation of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), triglyceride (TG) and low level high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels. However, the magnitude at which CAD risk increases with every lipid parameter is controversial. We developed a new index called CHOLINDEX, in order to evaluate CAD risk, and investigated its reliability.
