Aims Patients with familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) have an elevated cardiovascular (CV) risk. The objective of this analysis was to adjust CV risk equations derived in non-FH populations with hyperlipidaemia to predict CV risk in FH patients, and then to use these adjusted CV risk equations in a decision analytic model in order to predict lifetime CV risk in FH patients. Methods and results A literature search of publications reporting CV risk in FH patients identified the publication… CONTINUE READING
