Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Managing dyslipidemia is an important part of the primary and secondary prevention of coronary heart disease. Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol reduction remains the primary lipid goal. Patients who have experienced an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) are at very high risk of recurrent adverse cardiovascular events. A growing body of literature supports the concept that early and intensive treatment with statins after an ACS event decreases recurrent adverse cardiovascular events. We review available evidence pertaining to lipid alterations in ACS.
