LDL-C and risk of recurrent vascular events in patients with ischaemic stroke

香港大學中風研究及預防組 (HKU Stroke) 近日研究904位缺血性中風患者。研究發現,無論患者有否任何頸部及顱內大動脈粥樣硬化,低密度脂蛋白膽固醇 (LDL-C,「壞膽固醇」) 平均控制在 <1.8mmol/L的患者,與LDL-C 平均 ≥1.8mmol/L 的患者相比,7年內再中風、心臟病發或死亡的風險低35-50%。


Investigators from HKU Stroke recently followed-up 904 ischaemic stroke patients for an average of 7 years. We noted that regardless of whether patients had any significant atherosclerosis affecting the large arteries supplying the brain, those who achieved an average low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C, ‘bad cholesterol’) <1.8mmol/L had a 35-50% lower risk of another stroke, heart attack or death, compared to those who achieved an average LDL-C ≥1.8mmol/L. Our results highlight the importance of aggressive cholesterol control in patients with ischaemic stroke.

HKU Stroke和香港大學秀圃老年研究中心近日推出的「風起航」App是為中風患者及照顧者提供的對抗中風一站式平台。


HKU Stroke and Sau Po Centre on Ageing recently launched the “WeRISE” App. The “WeRISE” App is a ‘one-stop’ platform for stroke patients and caregivers combating stroke.

Users of the “WeRISE” App can easily monitor and optimise their vascular risk factors such as blood pressure, sugars and cholesterol to prevent the risk of a stroke or heart attack. Tips on healthy diet as well as recommended recipes from accredited dietitians could also be found within the App!
