A critique of new lipid management guidelines

AJMPlus | Sep 01, 2016

In December 2014, the US Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense (VA/DoD) published an independent clinical practice guideline for the management of dyslipidemia and cardiovascular disease risk, adding to the myriad of recently published guidelines on this topic. The VA/DoD guidelines differ from major US guidelines published by the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) in 2013 in several ways. In this review, the authors appraise the VA/DoD recommendations with a focus on the evidence base for each area where the VA/DoD guidelines differ from the ACC/AHA guidelines. They call for harmonization of lipid treatment guidelines to ensure high-quality and consistent care for patients with or at risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
