104 - Optimizing Cardiovascular Risk Reduction through Lipid Management

‐ Mar 29, 2019 1:20pm

Credits: None available.

Current guidelines focus on risk assessment and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk reduction through lipid-lowering therapies. Statin medications are proven first-line medications; however, other evidence-based agents are available as add-on therapy to statins to reduce CVD events. The indications for statins, PCSK9 inhibitors, and other lipid-lowering therapies with an emphasis on older adult patients, are discussed.
