Confirmation of lipid hypothesis in SEAS: Mortality risk stratification without lipids

3' education - July 28, 2011

Confirmation of lipid hypothesis in SEAS: Mortality risk stratification without lipids

Prof. Ingar Holme discusses the background and the main results of the SEAS trial. To further explain the outcomes of the trial, stratification by lipoprotein components and by aortic stenosis severity at baseline was performed. Prediction of the risk for ischemic events by lipid components is a valuable tool that will be further investigated.

Questions to be addressed in this PACE expert opinion are:
  • What is the background of the SEAS trial?
  • What are the main results of the SEAS trial?
  • Could the risk for Ischemic Cardiovascular Events  (ICE) be predicted?
  • How should the SEAS results be implemented?
  • Which lipid component would be the strongest predictor?
