Needs assessment and educational expected outcome:The 2019 ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines on the management of dyslipidemia recommend more stringent targets of LDL cholesterol for the prevention of vascular events. Particularly in patients with ACS, the target LDL is lowered to <55mg% and even <40mg% in a subgroup of patients with recurrent ischemic events. It is clear that with standard statin treatment this goal will not be achieved in a substantial proportion of patients and especially in those who do not tolerate a high dose of statine. So, how to deal with this new situation and what are lipid management strategies for both primary and secondary prevention. The present webinar will address these issues.
