This webcast originally aired as a live webinar sponsored by AACC on July 9, 2013. During this program, Dr. James Otvos describes how LDL and HDL cholesterol became the standard of care in the U.S. for assessing and managing LDL- and HDL- related cardiovascular risk, why the cholesterol content of LDL and HDL particles varies, causing discordance between LDL and HDL cholesterol levels and LDL and HDL particle concentrations, and how to improve the management of patients with discordant LDL and HDL cholesterol and particle concentrations by tailoring treatment to achieve particle number goals.
