ARREDONDO BRUCE, Alfredo Enrique; MARTINEZ CHAVEZ, Surama  y  ARREDONDO RUBIDO, Alfredo Enrique. Hypercholesterolemia management from two different points of view. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2021, vol.43, n.4, pp.1045-1055.  Epub 31-Ago-2021. ISSN 1684-1824.

Ischemic cardiomyopathy and cerebrovascular stroke are the first causes of death in the world. Cardiovascular disease of atherosclerotic origins is an international health problem that is also a social, sanitary and economic burden. The authors analyzed the main international guidelines on dyslipoproteinemia, like the ones from the European Society of Cardiology and the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association. They also considered the main articles published in the last five years on the management of hypercholesterolemia and chose 20 of them available in Medline, Google Scholar and SciELO. The before-mentioned guidelines gather the recommendations of their own organizations, and combine them with new ones. They both keep using risk scores on and differ on medical imaging determining the treatment, and also in the use of non-statin drugs. It is stated that the better intervention to prevent cardiovascular disease is the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.

Palabras clave : hypercholesterolemia; atherosclerotic-origin cardiovascular disease; imaging; statins.
