Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Multiple-drug therapy of dyslipidemia is frequently used to achieve treatment goals in high-risk patients with coronary artery disease. The authors report a case of a patient treated with a statin, fibrate, ezetimibe, and niacin in whom a calculated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level of 5 mg/dL was achieved.
