Why is Lp(a) so important?

What is Lp(a)?
Who does it affect?
Heart attack
Aortic stenosis
Vascular disease

Lipoprotein(a) is an independent marker for cardiovascular disease risk, meaning that other tests may not reveal the risk associated with it.

Lp(a) is like LDL, the “bad” cholesterol, in that it is made mostly in the liver and carries cholesterol throughout the body. It has 2 parts: an LDL-like lipoprotein with an apolipoprotein(b) or apo(b) and an apolipoprotein(a) or apo(a).

This apo(a) coils around the fatty core of the particle and can vary in length depending on its looped segments, called kringles. The number of kringles for apo(a) influences the risk it can impose and is thought to be genetically determined.
