In this video series, three experts present the most important changes in the ESC/EAS dyslipidemia guidelines, lessons learned after 5 years of use with PCSK9 inhibitors, and implemental gaps in the use of lipid-lowering therapies.
Prof. Kastelein gives an introduction to the symposium about LDL-c lowering therapies with a specifiek focus on PSCK9 inhibition that was held during the virtual ESC 2020 congress.
Attainment of risk-based LDL-c goals in the ESC/EAS guidelines is low due to implementation gaps, but even with optimal statin use, combination therapy with PCSK9i is often needed to achieve 2019 LDL-c goals.
Prof. Stroes discusses the efficacy of PCSK9 inhibitors and which patients benefit most from LDL-c lowering (combination) therapies.
Prof. Mach discusses the concepts for lipid lowering treatment as defined in the 2019 ESC/EAS dyslipidemia guidelines.
