LDL-Cholesterol after an Acute Coronary Syndrome: Long-term Follow-up Treatment

Prof. François Schiele
CHU de Besançon, Service de Cardiologie, Université de Franche Comté
 
 

After an acute coronary syndrome, most patients are generally prescribed statins. The rationale for the different treatment intensities, the modalities for follow-up of the lipid profile, and the target LDL-C to aim for are all subject to debate. The main reasons for not reaching the therapeutic target (insufficient treatment, intolerance, or poor compliance) are detailed, as well as the appropriate approach for addressing each situation.
