Abstract

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is one of the leading causes of death. While the mechanisms underlying this disease are complex and not fully understood, exhaustive research has uncovered many inherited and environmental risk abnormalities. Hyperlipidemia is an important yet modifiable risk factor of all the lipid abnormalities, the exact role of hypertriglyceridemia in the etiology of CHD is not clearly understood.
