Medscape Educ.: Reducing Residual Risk for Cardiovascular Disease Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Cardiology Practice

CME event for healthcare professionals who manage dyslipidemia.
 
 
Activity Overview
 

The correlation between elevations in total cholesterol or low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and cardiovascular (CV) risk is well known by healthcare professionals. However, knowledge and experience of lipid abnormalities outside of LDL-C, such as pathologic levels of triglycerides, is very limited, despite epidemiologic data that support the contribution of hypertriglyceridemia to the development and progression of atherosclerotic disease.

Recent data has shown that pure eicosapentaenoic acid ethyl ester (EPA) can reduce the risk for CV events. However, healthcare practitioners (HCPs) in cardiology, primary care, diabetology/endocrinology, and other settings have limited knowledge about the biologic and antiatherosclerotic properties of EPA and the potential for its combined use with statins to reduce residual CV risk in patients with mixed dyslipidemia at high risk for CV events.

Join Drs Deepak Bhatt, Preston Mason, and William Weintraub as they walk us through the current omega-3 landscape and how they can improve CV outcomes in patients with dyslipidemia.
