Objective Non high density lipoprotein cholesterol (non HDL-C) covers all aterojenic lipoproteins and correlates with C reactive protein (CRP) which is reliable marker of inflammation. CRP is related to poor angiographic coronary collateral circulation (CCC). We aimed to show whether non HDL-C is associated with CCC.Methods Patients who underwent coronary angiography for stable coronary artery disease and at least one epicardial coronary artery occluded in the proximal or middle region were

Non-HDL-C was calculated by subtracting HDL-C from total cholesterol (TC).Results 84 patients were included in the study. While 44 patients (52%) had good CCC, 40 patients (48%) had poor CCC. TC was found to be higher in the poor CCC group than in the good CCC group (224.3 ± 35.6 vs 179.2 ± 25.5 p = 0.000). HDL-C levels were found to be lower in the poor CCC group than in the good CCC group (37.3 ± 9.8 vs 44.1 ± 8.6 p = 0.001). Non-HDL-C cholesterol levels were higher in the group with poor CCC (185.7 ± 39.2 vs 132.8 ± 28.1 p = 0.000). CRP levels were found to be higher in the poor CCC group (3.73 ± 2.5 vs 1.67 ± 1.4 p = 0,000).Conclusion Non-HDL-C is independent predictors of poor CCC.
