In this study, 319 patients (34.7%) had no risk factor and others had at least one risk factors. Prevalence of risk factors was increased for all risk factors, but prevalence of hyperlipidemia (18.2%, 30.1% P<0.001) and smoking (18.2%, 23.5% P=0.03) increased statistically significantly during ten years.
