Abstract

In this article we address the issue of the continuing growing burden of morbidity and mortality associated to cardiovascular disease, by focusing on how this could be limited by implementing cardiovascular disease prevention strategies. In particular, we propose to: 1) performing a more comprehensive evaluation of total CV risk, especially in patients at high baseline risk profile; 2) achieving a risk reduction through a global therapeutic interventionon the different components of CV risk; 3) improving strategies aimed at global CV risk reduction in future years, especially in patients at high risk, and implementing armonization of guidelines for risk management. The burden of CV disease can be effectively reduced by adopting a more comprehensive approach to identification, risk stratification and treatment of individuals along the cardiovascular continuum.
