Abstract: Pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD) is multi-factorial and many risk factors are associated with development of CAD. LDL-C has been an important target for therapeutic interventions and has been extensively studied. But, various studies have indicated that estimation of LDL-C is not enough to assess the risk. Moreover, LDL particles vary in their content, density and size which have different physico-chemical properties. In this paper, the role of small dense (sd) LDL in risk assessment for CAD and its response to different therapeutic modalities available have been reviewed.
