Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Hypercholesterolemia has been identified as an important risk factor for the development of obstructive coronary artery disease, and studies have shown that a reduction in the level of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol is associated with a reduction in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. This paper reviews the current approach to hyperlipidemia for primary and secondary prevention of coronary disease and identifies important questions that remain to be answered.
