Magnitude of alimentary lipemia is related to intima-media thickness of the common carotid artery in middle-aged men.

Abstract:

Fat intake leads to generation of potentially atherogenic triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRL). To investigate the relationship between early atherosclerotic changes and accumulation of hepatic and intestinal TRL after oral fat intake, an estimate of the intima-media thickness (IMT) was made using ultrasound of the common carotid artery, and postprandial TRL was quantified during a standardized oral fat tolerance test in 30 healthy normo- and hypertriglyceridemic middle-aged men. At base line...
