Lipoprotein Particle Concentrations in Children and Adults following Kawasaki Disease
- Author(s): Liu, Victoria
- et al.
The long-term sequelae of Kawasaki disease (KD) are largely unknown and concern has been voiced that the damaged arterial wall may be more susceptible to development of premature atherosclerosis. We sought to determine whether children and adults with a history of KD are more likely to have abnormal lipoprotein particle profiles that could place them at increased risk of atherosclerosis later in life.
