Background: Fibrinogen and lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] are two cardiovascular risk factors that increase risk of atherosclerosis through inflammation and coagulation mechanisms. The aim of this study was to compare the levels of mentioned factors between athlete and non-athlete disabled veterans.
Materials and methods: subjects of this study were 16 male, non-chemical warfare victim, disabled veterans that assigned into two groups as control and experimental. Athlete subjects were players of North Khorasan Province veteran’s futsal team who had regular exercise training in past six months. Trainings of athlete group were three sessions per week that each session involved warming up, technical, tactical and fitness trainings and cooling down. Non-athlete subjects had no regular exercise training in past six months. Serum fibrinogen and Lp(a) levels of subjects were analyzed after 12 hours fasting, using auto-analyzer system. Independent sample t-test was used for comparing of dependent variables means between two groups.
Results: Analysis of data showed that mean values of fibrinogen and Lp(a) were lower in experimental group compared to control group (p≤0.05).
Conclusion: According to study findings, regular futsal trainings leads to reduction of fibrinogen and Lp(a) levels that is effective in prevention of atherosclerosis and heart stroke.
