Elevation of fasting plasma triglycerides above the normal level (150 mg/dL) is an indication of hypertriglyceridemia (borderline high, 150–199 mg/dL; high, 200-499 mg/dL; very high, above 500 mg/dL). A plethora of experimental and clinical studies evidenced a perceptible association between hypertriglyceridemia and cardiovascular disease. Hypertriglyceridmia could lead to endothelial dysfunction, atherosclerosis, hypertension, and ischemic heart disease. In addition, studies have demonstrated the myocardial susceptibility to ischemia-reperfusion injury in the hypertriglyceridemic condition. Importantly, hypertriglyceridemia alone may cause cardiovascular abnormalities like atherosclerosis even in absence of hypercholesterolemia. It is worth-mentioning that a pharmacological reduction in triglyceride levels diminishes the cardiovascular disease pathogenesis. It is a subject of contemporary interest to detail whether hypertriglyceridemia a key detrimental factor or an associative triggering factor for cardiovascular abnormalities. This review will discuss the potential role of hypertriglyceridemia in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disorders.
