  • Overview

    Patients with ASCVD and a history of MI are at especially high risk for repeat adverse cardiac events. Listen in as Dr. Bill Boden summarizes a post hoc analysis of such patients from the REDUCE-IT trial. Can icosapent ethyl plus a statin provide improved carioprotection by reducing recurrent events in this population? Tune in to learn more!

    REDUCE-IT is a landmark trial that examined the coadministration of icosapent ethyl and statins in patients for secondary and primary prevention of recurrent events and demonstrated a significant reduction in the key primary and secondary endpoints. This discussion relates to a post hoc analysis of a subset of patients who had prior myocardial infarction, as part of the REDUCE-IT study, and comprised about 45% of the patients with established atherosclerotic coronary disease. The results of this post-MI analysis bring into clear focus that treating hypertriglyceridemia is a critical variable in terms of reducing dyslipidemic risk and overall risk.
