Residual Risk of Cardiovascular Complications in Case of Adequate Lipid-Lowering Therapy


This article is devoted to the problems of residual risk of cardiovascular complications development for high and very high risk patients under adequate lipid-lowering pharmacotherapy in spite of cholesterol and low-density lipoproteins target level achievement. Along with classic risk factors the special attention is given to lipoprotein (a) [LP(a)] as the most aggressive factor of cardiovascular system atherosclerotic diseases development and their complications. Great importance is attached to lipidopheresis.
