Navigating Changes in LDL Management: Focus on PCSK9 Inhibitors Meeting Coverage from the CRT Conference 2017

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This live symposium coverage at the CRT Conference 2017 in Washington D.C. features expert faculty who discuss current changes and challenges in LDL management in an evolving therapeutic environment. New therapeutic agents, including PCSK9 inhibitors and their role in the existing statin-based drug armamentarium, are evaluated from a risk-benefit profile as an option for treating populations who may not be good candidates for statin therapy. Newly issued cholesterol guidelines for managing both LDL and HDL levels are also evaluated, along with a comprehensive discussion of current ASCVD diagnostic criteria for various populations and risk stratifications.
