In patients with the strongest clinical suspicion of ADH/FH, particularly those with tendinous xanthomas, a causative mutation can be found in 70%-80% of cases (12,17).
The independent categorical variables were coded as follows: 1 for male and 0 for female, 1 for presence and 0 for absence of hypertension, 1 for presence and 0 for absence of arcus cornealis, and 1 for presence and 0 for absence of tendinous xanthomas.
Body mass index, PCVD prevalence, the presence of tendinous xanthomas and arcus cornealis, total and serum LDL-cholesterol concentrations, and the frequencies of the 118 mutations were significantly higher in patients with a definite clinical diagnosis of FH.
