Lipid profile before and after LDL apheresis sessions in all cases.

All data are expressed as mg/dL, mean ± SD/median (range). The mean data are based on multiple measurements ( = 102, only sessions, which had all three parameters, TC, TG, and HDL-C, measured, were involved) during all the followup period. All values were significantly decreased < 0.001. To convert cholesterol values (TC, HDL-C) from mg/dL to mmol/L, multiply by 0.0259 and, for TGs, multiply by 0.0113. TC indicates total cholesterol; TG indicates triglycerides; HDL-C indicates high density lipoprotein cholesterol.
