Femoral Lesion Change in Relation to Measured Risk Factors in the Stockholm-Uppsala Trial
Our access to highly efficient drugs against hyperlipoproteinemia (1,2) and to a high resolution femoral angiography technique (3) prompted us to study the effect of pronounced serum-lipid lowering on the development of femoral atherosclerosis in hyperlipoproteinemia.
