SHORT TRACK :: Triglyceride-rich Lipoproteins and their Remnants in Cardiovascular Disease

Demystifying the management of hypertriglyceridemia

A presentation by Professor Anne Tybjaerg-Hansen from Copenhagen University Hospital and Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. In this presentation we get basics on triglycerides and CVD risk and are also taken through the underlying genetic studies, primarily based on the data from Copenhagen. Furthermore Professor Tybjaerg-Hansen tells us about the new treatment targets that are being developed based on Mendelian randomization studies.

Why TG-Rich Lipoproteins/non-HDL cholesterol matter when assessing CVD RISK? – Atherogenic dyslipidaemia

This presentation is made by Professor Alberto Zambon, University of Padua, Italy. Professor Zambon approaches the subject from a practical point of view. What should we measure to capture the CVD risk beyond LDL and how can we interpret the analyses of different lipoprotein fraction in practice.

How to treat diabetic dyslipidaemia

Professor Gerald F Watts from Cardiometabolic Service, Department of Cardiology, Royal Perth Hospital, School of Medicine, University of Western Australia, Australia talks about how to treat the residual risk in diabetic patients. His approach is practical and patient oriented and should be of major interest for all physicians seeing this group of patients.
