Abstract

The present study was conducted to investigate the changes in the lipid profile of valvular heart disease patients. 21 patients of acute or severe valvular heart diseases, both male and female, age group 30 to 75 years, were included in the study. Serum levels of total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides were analyzed by using biochemical kits and the data obtained by these patients were compared with the data from normal individuals using the students “t” test. It was found that the total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides concentrations were significantly higher (p < 0.05) in valvular heart disease patients.
