Scripps Cardiovascular Atherosclerosis: Prediction, Prevention and Management

18may7:00 am5:00 pmScripps Cardiovascular Atherosclerosis: Prediction, Prevention and Management

Event Details

Despite notable advances in management, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and its major clinical manifestations remains a leading cause of both morbidity and mortality worldwide. In the United States alone, ASCVD is the leading cause of death in most racial and ethnic populations and is estimated to cost more than $200 billion per year due to medications, healthcare service utilization, and productivity losses. Many of these human and economic costs are largely attributable to poor implementation of prevention strategies in adults and failure to control ASCVD risk factors using available medications and lifestyle interventions. The Scripps Cardiovascular Atherosclerosis conference is designed to assist clinicians in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing management of ASCVD among patients in their clinical practices as well as to promote increased awareness of prudent lifestyle and dietary choices to improve patient outcomes.

After Attending This Live Activity, Participants Should Be Able To:

  • Discuss the principles and applications of personalized medicine and genomics in the management of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

  • Cite the latest guidelines and evidence-based recommendations for the selection of therapies for individual patients with heart failure.
  • Determine the potential role of supplements in the primary and secondary prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
  • Describe current principles and applications of non-invasive coronary evaluations, including computed tomography (CT) coronary artery imaging.
  • Summarize the latest information regarding nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, including epidemiology, pathophysiology and contribution to cardiovascular disease.
