Plasma cholesterol after myocardial infarction
  1. Susan G. Cotton


    Serial plasma cholesterol estimations were made at intervals up to 13 weeks after myocardial infarction in fourteen men. Wide fluctuations in these levels, occasionally in excess of 100 mg/100 ml were found during the first 3 weeks and subsequently.

    The general trend was towards lowest levels about the end of the first week. The 3-week level was frequently not typical of subsequent levels, which may have been influenced by seasonal variation and body weight changes.
