There is a spectrum of lipoproteins with different proportions of triglycerides and cholesterol. Jorge Plutzky talks about the biology of lipoproteins and why measuring only LDL-c is not sufficient to estimate lipid associated CV risk.
This educational video is part of a series called '4 Things a cardiologist needs to know about triglycerides' that is aimed to guide cardiologists in how triglycerides affect CV risk and how patients with high triglyceride levels can be managed according to recent insights.
Jorge Plutzky, M.D. is Director, Preventive Cardiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), and is on the faculty of Harvard Medical School at Boston, MA, USA.
