Lipoprotein (a) has a role in atherosclerosis process through prothrombotic effect, anti-fibrinolytic and accelerated atherogenesis. Traditional risk factor plays an important role as an independent risk factor of cardiovascular disease: Association between Lp(a) level with a traditional risk factor and lipid profiles still not giving consistent result yet, so it is needed to research the association between traditional risk factor with Lp(a) levels. Patient with acute myocardial infarction that was hospitalized in Cardiac Comprehensive Care Installation at M. Djamil Hospital was included in the research. Clinical characteristic and laboratorium were collected, and then statistical analysis was done to see the association and correlation with Lp(a) level with the cardiovascular risk factor. There were 32 patients with acute myocardial infarction included in the research. Most of the patients were male, had risk factors of hypertension, smoker, and dyslipidemia, had Lp(a) level within normal limit. There were differences between Lp(a) level in patients with and without hypertension, while for another cardiovascular risk factors there were no significant differences. Correlation between Lp(a) level and lipid profiles, there was no significant correlation. There was the difference between Lp(a) level in a patient with and without hypertension, while there was no significant correlation between Lp(a) with lipid profiles.
