In the Quebec Cardiovascular Study, men free of ischemic heart disease at baseline were evaluated and followed for 13 years. Small, dense LDL (<255A) was found to be a significant risk factor for CAD events whereas larger LDL size (>260A), even when elevated, was not a significant risk over the 13 years follow up [45]. Metabolic syndrome has been linked to small, dense LDL prevalence.
