Abstract

Aim: Achievement of target lipid levels is a one of the most important part of the cardiovascular risk reduction to which an obvious way is to switch from current drug to a stronger statin.
Method: In a 3-month, multicenter, prospective, observational, non-interventional open-label study the change of lipid levels and the rate of target level attainment were investigated in 1385 high cardiovascular risk patients, administering, if possible, rosuvastatin in those with lipid levels over the target values.
Results: During the 3-month treatment period the level of total cholesterol decreased by 25.2%, LDL-cholesterol by 35.0%, triglyceride by 21.0% and HDL-cholesterol level increased by 5.1%. At the end of the study 96% of the patients were treated with rosuvastatin in monotherapy or in combination. At the third month the rate of achieving LDL-cholesterol target level was 57.7% and that of HDL-cholesterol target level was 66.7% and in case of triglyceride level 48.2%. The majority of patients (1077 persons) belonged to the very high risk category according to theguidelines of 3rd Hungarian Cardiovascular Consensus Conference. Among them the achievement rate of an LDLcholesterol
level of 1.8mmol/L was proved to be 19.0%.
Conclusion: The study confirmed that more frequent use of a high-efficient statin (rosuvastatin) by specialists has a beneficial effect on lipid parameters and also facilitates a higher rate of achieving target lipid levels, but to be more efficient, mainly in the very high risk category cases, the combination therapy has to be used more often.
