Clinical Quiz: Nonstatin Therapies for LDL-C Lowering

News
Article

This clinical quiz will test your knowledge on the use of non-statin therapies for LDL-C lowering based on the American College of Cardiology's 2022 Expert Consensus Decision Pathway on the Role of Nonstatin Therapies for LDL-Cholesterol Lowering in the Management of Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease Risk.

In LDL-C management, statins have remained a cornerstone of care since their advent decades ago. However, despite mountains of data demonstrating class's profound effect on LDL-C lowering and favorable safety profile, many patients are statin-intolerant and require a more nuanced approach to the management of their dyslipidemia.

Decades ago, this presented a major issue for some, but, in recent years, addition of new therapies, including bempedoic acid and combination with ezetimibe, have proven to be reliable options for these patients. In this clinical quiz, we test your knowledge on use of non-statin therapies for lowering LDL-C based on the American College of Cardiology's 2022 Expert Consensus Decision Pathway on the Role of Nonstatin Therapies for LDL-Cholesterol Lowering in the Management of Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease Risk.

Which of the following is NOT considered a nonstatin therapy for LDL-cholesterol lowering?
