On this edition of Heart Doc VIP, a discussion of new guidelines from the recent American Heart Association annual meeting is the focus. The key hot topics are 1. Do we treat patients over age 75? 2. Do we use only high dose medications or can we personalize therapy? 3. Is there a role for medications other than "statins"? What is the role of coronary artery calcium CT scans? And as a bonus, new data from Japan on ezetimibe is news to know. Share this with friends and your doctor.
