Combined lipid-lowering therapy

Combined lipid-lowering therapy

Vnitrni Lekarstvi 64(12): 1177-1184

Dyslipidemia belongs to the main risk factors for atherosclerosis. To achieve current blood lipid targets, it is often necessary to use intensive hypolipidemic therapy including a combination of individual hypolipidemic drugs. In terms of cardiovascular risk reduction, it is important that the patient is treated with the highest tolerated dose of statin. In the next step, we decide to co-administer ezetimibe and/or fibrate, and for high-risk patients an additional treatment with proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin 9 inhibitors should be considered. The manuscript provides an overview of the individual combinations effectiveness to influence lipid spectrum and the incidence of cardiovascular diseases. Key words: cardiovascular disease - dyslipidemia - ezetimibe - fibrates - PCSK9 inhibitors - statins.
