Welcome to the new-look EAS website!

For more than 50 years the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) has been at the forefront of the study of atherosclerosis. Our members' expertise has been used to teach clinicians how to manage lipid disorders and how to prevent atherosclerosis.

Today, by offering to our members access to educational materials, and opportunities to take part in Congress and courses, and by providing a forum in which the latest research can be discussed, EAS contributes to the development of knowledge in the field, and ultimately to the improved treatment of persons with cardiovascular disease and lipid disorders.

The EAS website has been updated to make it easier for our members and others to find the information they need about the Society's growing range of activities and initiatives.

Please take a few minutes to explore the site. We welcome your feedback!

Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is the most common inherited cause of premature coronary heart disease (CHD), affecting about 1 in 200-250 people. Based on current estimates, this means that worldwide, one baby is born with FH every minute. Yet most FH patients are not diagnosed, and even if recognised and treated, few attain low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol goal.

The European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) has risen to the challenge of improving the care of FH patients. One of the critical catalysts for change was publication of the EAS Position Statement on FH, which highlighted the extent of underdiagnosis and undertreatment of FH. Considering the burden of death and disability associated with untreated – or undertreated – FH, there is a clear rationale to identify and treat children with FH early to prevent atherosclerosis progression and coronary complications.
