The New Era of Preventive Cardiology: Applying PCSK9 Inhibitor Therapeutics to Prevent Heart Attack and Stroke

  • April 26, 2018
    2:15 pm - 3:30 pm


This live symposium held in conjunction with the National Lipid Association 2018 Scientific Sessions will outline the role of PCSK9 inhibitor therapeutics in preventing heart attack and stroke in a new era of preventive cardiology. The expert faculty will review risk stratification for patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD).  Cardiovascular outcomes data from ODYSSEY and FOURIER PCSK9 inhibitor clinical trials will be analyzed, utilizing an interactive panel format to translate evidence-based medicine to clinical decision making. The faculty will evaluate best practices for optimally managing preventive cardiology with PCSK9 inhibitor therapeutics.
