2019 ESC/EAS guidelines for the management of dyslipidaemias: Lipid modification to reduce cardiovascular risk

The 2019 Joint European Society of Cardiology (ESC)/European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) Dyslipidaemia Guidelines were released on 31 August during the ESC Congress, Paris, France. These novel ESC/EAS Guidelines on lipids provide important new advice on patient management, which should enable more clinicians to efficiently and safely reduce CV risk through lipid modification. What were the key changes to those published in 2016? In the video below, the EAS contributors Professor Alberico L. Catapano, Professor Lale Tokgozoglu, and Professor Olov Wiklund describe key changes and what they will mean for practicing clinicians.

From the EAS President

As the year draws to a close, I'd like to take a moment to reflect on the progress we have made in the Society’s activities during 2019. Read more in my "Review of the year" >>

All EAS activities and initiatives are conceived, planned and carried out by dedicated and driven individuals, who devote much time, energy and enthusiasm to the life of the Society. Their engagement enables EAS to run the publication and educational activities that fulfil our mission to advance knowledge in the field of atherosclerosis. I thank the Society's Executive Committee for devoting their time and energy to the Society, and, on their behalf, I take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank most sincerely every contribution, large or small, to the activities of the EAS.

I wish you all health and happiness in the holiday season, and scientific success in 2020 – Hope to see you all at EAS 2020 Geneva!
