Post-mortem serum cholesterol levels

British Medical Journal 2(5216): 1852-1853
Post-mortem serum cholesterol levels
The serum cholesterol was estimated on 26 patients shortly before and at varying times after death. The ante-mortem and post-mortem levels were close. The post-mortem serum cholesterol may be taken as an indication of the level just before death.
