Learning Objectives

It is expected that the 2019 ESC Guidelines on Dyslipidaemias will change the prevention landscape being more aggressive in LDL reduction for high-risk groups. It is important to focus and educate cardiologists on this very important prevention chapter

Key opinion leaders will discuss:

  • Grey zones of prevention. Which patients show enhanced risk?
  • How low is very low concerning LDL?
  • When to add ezetimibe?
  • When to add PCSK9?
  • This webinar shall educate and provide the cardiologist with all the up-to-date knowledge on the 2019 ESC Guidelines on Dyslipidaemias.

After this webinar physicians should be able to:

  • Identify patient populations for the new targets;
  • Learn the rationale behind these targets; and
  • Feel more confident about hypolipidemic drugs safety.
