Hypertriglyceridemia as a cardiovascular risk factor. Implications of the diabetes control and complications trial.

Framingham Risk Score (ATP-III)

El colesterol de la dieta y su escasa influencia sobre la colesterolemia y el riesgo cardiovascular. Page 1 Research from experimental animals, laboratory investigations, epidemiology, and genetic forms of hypercholesterolemia indicate that elevated LDL cholesterol is a major cause of CHD. Total cholesterol is used for year risk assessment because of a larger and more robust Framingham database for total than for LDL cholesterol, but LDL cholesterol is the primary target of therapy.

Estimation of ten-year risk of fatal cardiovascular disease in Europe: Am J Clin Nutr, 76pp. Am J Clin Nutr, 65pp. CT Severity Index Pancreatitis Predict complication and mortality rate in pancreatitis, based on CT findings Balthazar score Expected spleen size Provides upper limit of normal for spleen length and volume by ultrasound relative to body height and gender.

The full ATP III document is an evidence-based and extensively referenced report that provides the scientific rationale for the recommendations contained in the executive summary.

The TLC Diet stresses reductions in saturated fat and cholesterol intakes. When risk factor is present, Framingham scoring is not necessary because year risk rarely reaches levels for intensive intervention; a very high LDL level in such a person may nevertheless warrant consideration of drug therapy to reduce long-term risk.


The third ATP report updates the existing recommendations for clinical management of high blood cholesterol. Use of antioxidant vitamins for the prevention of cardiovascular disease: The risk factors of the metabolic syndrome are highly concordant; in aggregate they enhance risk for CHD at any given LDL cholesterol level.

This value can be used for treatment decisions. Se continuar a navegar, consideramos que aceita o seu uso. Relation of plasma levels and composition of apolipoprotein Bcontaining lipoproteins to sepaol defined coronary artery disease in young patients with myocardial infarction. Effect of intensive compared with moderate lipid-lowering therapy on progression of coronary atherosclerosis: It further may enhance risk by impairing cardiovascular fit-ness and coronary blood flow. Effects of iiu fatty acids espwol serum lipids and lipoproteins: Persons at relatively high risk are also candidates for drug treatment, which is very effective but entails significant additional expense.

Their presence can modulate clinical judgment when making therapeutic decisions. Among these are life-habit risk factors and emerging risk uii. Page 4 First, the number of risk factors is counted Table 3.

Forrest Classification Estimate risk of re-bleeding post-endoscopy for upper GI bleeding. A statement from the Council on Clinical Cardiology subcommittee aatp exercise, rehabilitation, and prevention and the Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Metabolism subcommittee on physical activity.

When drugs are prescribed, attention to TLC should always be maintained and reinforced. J Clin Endocrinol Metabol, 89pp. As a result, the primary goals of therapy and the cutpoints for initiating treatment are stated in terms of LDL. When the metabolic syndrome or its associated lipid risk factors elevated Page 7 triglyceride or low HDL cholesterol are present, TLC also stresses weight reduction and increased physical activity. Individual fatty acids effects on plasma lipids and lipoproteins: Atherosclerosis, 87pp.


However, the costs of LDL-lowering drugs are currently in flux and appear to be declining.

The usual drug will be a statin, but alternatives are a bile acid sequestrant or nicotinic acid. Additional risk reduction can be achieved by simultane-ously increasing physical activity. Atherogenicity of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins.

Physical inactivity is likewise a major, underlying risk factor for CHD. The latter carry a risk for major coronary events equal to that of established CHD, i.

Am J Clin Nutr, 69pp. Fruit and vegetable intake and risk of cardiovascular disease in US adults: Guidelines for dyslipemias treatment: Nonetheless, some persons at higher risk because of high or very high LDL cholesterol levels or because of multiple risk factors are edpaol for LDL-lowering drugs.

The major risk factors, exclusive of elevated LDL cholesterol, are used to define the presence of multiple risk factors that modify the goals and cutpoints for LDL-lowering treatment, and these are listed in Table 3.

Such iui may have a strong genetic contribution to insulin resistance. Emerging risk factors for atherosclerotic vascular disease. Therapeutical potential of plant sterols and stanols. ATP II affirmed the importance of this approach and added a new feature:
