Closing the gap in cholesterol management: A healthcare system approach

Watch Dr Derek Connolly, Consultant Interventional Cardiologist and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer, Birmingham City Hospital, and Dr Peter Carey, Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology, South Tyneside and Sunderland, discuss the role of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and lipoprotein(a) (Lp[a]) as independent risk factors for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), and how population health management approaches could help tackle the cholesterol problem at a healthcare system level. The experts discuss LDL- lowering thresholds and Lp(a) testing guideline recommendations, focusing on the gap between LDL-C targets and results, and the current underutilisation of Lp(a) testing when assessing at-risk patients.
