It is well known that the incidence of left ventricular (LV) thrombosis is high in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Due to the high degree of structural homology with plasminogen, lipoprotein(a) may produce thrombogenic effects by modulating the fibrinolytic system. However, the role of Lp(a) level in the formation of LV thrombus has not been studied. This study sought to determine whether Lp(a) is a risk factor for LV thrombus in patients with AMI.
