Il rischio residuo nelle dislipidemie: ruolo delle lipoproteine ad alta densità e dei trigliceridi plasmatici
Nella terapia delle dislipoproteinemie il concetto di “rischio residuo” legato ad altri disturbi del metabolismo lipidico lipoproteico è materia di discussione e di interesse.
Obiettivo di questa Consensus è fare il punto sulla situazione ad oggi e sulle prospettive future per quanto riguarda la nostra capacità di controllare questi fattori lipidici di rischio aggiuntivi che, sicuramente, rivestiranno un ruolo sempre più importante nell’approccio integrato dal paziente a rischio cardiovascolare.
