Formatted Abstract/Summary
Objective: Lipoprotein (a) is one of the most atherogenic lipoproteins and an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease and stroke. Lp(a) has been found to be elevated in hypertensives in several, but not all studies. The reason for this elevation seems unclear. It is also not clear whether Lp(a) is elevated in all forms of hypertension. Since the kidney plays an important role in apo(a) catabolism, we postulated that only patients with renovascular hypertension have elevated plasma Lp(a) levels.

Conclusions: Patients with renovascular hypertension, but not patients with primary aldosteronism have elevated Lp(a) levels. Kidney function but not hypertension itself is probably responsible for this elevation of Lp(a).
