  • 2)

    All the following statements are correct except.

    • a.

      The concentration of total cholesterol or LDLC in blood is significantly associated with CAD mortality.

    • b.

      LDL particle is atherogenic.

    • c.

      Extreme elevation of HDLC is the hall mark of familial hypercholesterolemia.

    • d.

      Medical therapy nowadays may reduce LDLC up to 50%.

  • 3)

    Mark as true or false

    • a.

      LDLreceptors are diminished in familial hypercholesterolemia.

    • b.

      Aggressive lowering of LDLC showed a rapid favorable effect to diminish CVD events.

    • c.

      Exposure to passive cigarette smoke may slightly increase CAD events.

    • d.

      Lowering LDLC is associated with favorable outcome on recurrent CAD events but not initial prevention.

  • 4)

    All are correct except (one or more)

    • a.

      Treating isolated systolic hypertension has no impact on lowering CVD events.

    • b.

      Treating HTN may result in 15% less incidence of subsequent MI.

    • c.

      HTN is considered one of the risk factors for which intervention has proved to reduce the incidence of CAD.

    • d.

      It is the tight glycemic control and not the level of BP that plays the major favorable CVD impact on outcome in NIDDM patients.

    • e.

      All of the above.

  • 5)

    Which is true

    • a.

      LVH is the response of the heart to smoking.

    • b.

      HTN increases the incidence of CV stroke and not MI.

    • c.

      Increased levels of LV mass have been shown to be associated with decreased incidence of CAD.

    • d.

      LVH is a non modifiable risk factor.

    • e.

      Non of the above.

    • f.

      All of the above.

  • 6)

    which is true (one or more)

    • a.

      Higher fibrinogen concentration is associated with increased MI.

    • b.

      LVH detected by voltage criteria on ECG may predict subsequent angina, MI, and SCD.

    • c.

      The use of aspirin plus warfarin derivatives is associated with low initial CAD incidence in the elderly.

    • d.

      Platelet aggregability may play a role in AMI.

    • e.

      All of the above.
