Abstract

Introduction: Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is one of the most common retinal vascular disorders affecting ocular vessels. Few studies, with conflicting results and conducted in limited study populations, have hypothesised the role of high levels of lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)] in the occurrence of RVO. The aim of this study was to investigate, in a large group of RVO patients, the role of such an emerging thrombophilic parameter on the pathogenesis of RVO. Materials and methods: We compared 262 patients [median age: 66 years (15-88); 122 M, 140 F] with 262 age- and sex-comparable healthy subjects. Results: Circulating concentrations of Lp(a) were found to be significantly different in patients when compared to healthy subjects [189 (60-1898). mg/L vs. 119.5 (6-1216). mg/L; p 300 mg/L were found to be associated with an increased risk of RVO (OR: 2.39, 95%CI 1.39-3.59; p 300 mg/L confirmed their role as a risk factor for RVO [first model, OR: 2.15 (95%CI 1.39-3.32), p=0.0001; second model, OR: 3.11 (95%CI 1.77-5.62), p
