Atherosclerosis is the most common and most important risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.


Between dates January 2007 and December 2010, 868 coronary artery disease, and 268 peripheral vascular disease patients who were treated surgically at our clinic were investigated.


Mean age of 868 coronary artery disease patients were 63,86 ± 11,17 (between 21-91 years) and 268 peripheral arterial disease patients were 65,44 ± 10,37 (between 21-92 years).


Between 868 patients underwent surgery for coronary artery disease, LDL cholesterol level of 518 patients were >100 mg/dl and 350 patients were < 100 mg<7 mg/dl. Mean hospital stay length of patients was 6,8 days and 6,19 days, respectively. This difference was significant (p < 0.05).Between 268 patients underwent surgery for peripheral arterial disease, LDL cholesterol level of 177 patients were >100 mg/dl and 91 patients were < 100 mg<7 mg/dl. There was any significant correlation between LDL cholesterol levels and intensive care or hospital stay length (p > 0.05).


We believe that, precise examination of preoperative risk factors and providing adequate pre and per operative medication will significantly reduce surgical morbidity rates, intensive care unit, and hospital stay lengths of coronary and peripheral arterial disease patients.
