Radcliffe Medical Education are delighted to bring together this on-demand version of the Multidisciplinary Roundtable. This video series, chaired by Dr Yassir Javaid (East Midlands Clinical Network, UK) reviews two case studies created by Prof Kausik Ray (Imperial College London, UK), which cover primary and secondary cardiovascular prevention in high-risk patients uncontrolled by statins. Follow the links below to watch the two case studies pre-recorded before the roundtable discussion. 

Dr Javaid will be joined by Prof Lale Tokgözoğlu (Hacettepe University, Turkey), Prof Kausik Ray and Prof Ulrich Laufs (Leipzig University, Germany) on panelDuring the roundtable the faculty will discuss strategies to assess statin intolerance; CV outcomes associated with statin withdrawal; real-world data pertaining to guideline lipid targets; and emerging options for reducing CV events in high-risk patients. 

Case Study 1: Watch Dr Julia Brandts present a case study on a patient at High CV risk (primary prevention), statin intolerant.

Case Study 2: Watch Dr Julia Brandts present a case study on a patient on moderate statins and not reaching their goal

Key Learning Objectives

  • Recall prevalence of patients who are statin uncontrolled/intolerant
  • Define the additive benefit of combination treatment compared with statin intensification
  • Name the non-statin LLTs offering proven CV protection
  • Identifying patients with indication for novel non-statin therapy
  • Initiate lipid-lowering strategies proven to lower future CV events

Target Audience

  • Lipid Management Specialists
  • Cardiologists
  • Primary Care

Part 1

Introduction and Case Study Review

In this first session, Dr Yassir Javaid and Prof Kausik Ray review the pre-recorded case studies on a 58 year-old with prior MI and a 76 year-old female with polygenic hypercholesterolaemia.

Part 2

Managing CV Risk in Statin Intolerant or Statin Uncontrolled Patients

Prof Ulrich Laufs determines statin intolerant, reasons for statin withdrawal and CV outcomes associated with statin withdrawal. 

Part 3

Attaining Lipid Targets: How are we doing?

Prof Kausik Ray reviews the guidelines on lipid targets, and real-world data. 

Part 4

Reducing Major Events in High-Risk Patients: Is Statin Intensification Adequate?

Prof Lale Tokgözoğlu reviews the guidelines and clinical data recap. 

Part 5

Patient Results and Closing

In this concluding segment, the faculty revisit the patient cases and review live polling results. If you voted in our online poll, you’ll want to watch these to find out how your peers voted and to hear what our expert panel have to say. Dr Yassir Javaid then provides a summary and conclusion of the roundtable.
