Returning to specific LDL cholesterol goals

Returning to specific LDL cholesterol goals

New guidelines set in 2013 eliminated recommended LDL and non-HDL cholesterol targets. Is it still appropriate to set specific LDL cholesterol goals for patients?

Stephen L. Kopecky, M.D., and Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, M.D., experts in cholesterol management at Mayo Clinic, discuss the science and benefits that support a return to specific LDL cholesterol goals.

Thomas G. Allison, Ph.D., moderates this Roundtable Review video, first shown on Medscape Cardiology.
