Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Eight case histories with differing clinical presentations and lipid abnormalities are presented to illustrate new trends in lipid management. Issues discussed include the use of coronary artery calcium scores to assess coronary heart disease risk for individuals who are asymptomatic, lower LDL-cholesterol goals, new lipid measurements that may be clinically helpful in patient management, and the use of combined lipid-altering agents.
