Overview

This round table is designed to provide clinicians with a better understanding of the long-term CV risks of LDL-C exposure. In addition to reviewing the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and assessing the long term implications of elevated LDL-C, this meeting will consider current guidance around controlling LDL-C, the challenges in achieving LDL-C targets, and evaluate how emerging strategies are contributing to LDL-C management.

 

Each chapter will comprise of a short presentation by the named medical expert followed by a panel discussion amongst all faculty.

This medical experts round table discussion was organised independently by Radcliffe Cardiology, work that was funded by Novartis. It is intended for healthcare professionals as medical educational material, and may include data/information on investigational uses of compounds/drugs that have not yet been approved by regulatory authorities.
