Description:
The high prevalence of cardiovascular disease has focussed the attention of the medical profession and the general public for many years. The Irish College of General Practitioners since it was founded in 1984 has recognised that a variety of views exist regarding the extent to which specific risk factors relate to cardiovascular disease and in particular to coronary heart disease. The Clinical Review Committee was established in June 1990 to address the question of hyperlipidaemia and in particular of hypercholesterolaemia and their relevance to the development of cardiovascular disease. After much discussion, debate and review of the literature, the Committee has arrived at a consensus statement which I believe is fair and reflects the true position. However, because of the wide range of views held by members of the Task Force, arriving at a consensus was not easy. The reservations of two members of the committee were respected and are noted in the final document. Hopefully, this statement will stimulate further debate and discussion and will serve as a guideline for the practising profession. Our thanks are due to the members of the Committee and in particular to Dr John Cox who headed the Task Force and worked arduously in researching the subject and producing the final document.
