3rd Annual Cardiometabolic Risk in Inflammatory Conditions: Emerging Insights and Treatment of Inflammation in Cardiovascular Disease
April 28 @ 7:45 AM - 2:50 PM
This course will be offered both in-person and live-streamed online
This one-day course will cover state-of-the-art topics on the management of patients at elevated risk of cardiovascular and cardiometabolic disease due to underlying systemic inflammation. This course is designed to provide an informative and practical guide towards the clinical management across a spectrum of cardiovascular conditions in those with systemic inflammation and such disease states as recurrent pericarditis, dyslipidemia, and atherosclerosis. The course is meant to be an update into recent data linking systemic inflammation and cardiovascular disease including reviewing current and upcoming clinical trials targeting inflammation to reduce cardiovascular disease in those with chronic kidney disease and peripheral arterial disease. Multimodality imaging is increasingly important to manage cardiovascular disease in those with systemic inflammation and updates will be provided on novel techniques to image the vasculature in vasculitis, microvascular testing, and MRI to evaluate the myo and pericardium. Finally, a series of speakers will discuss emerging data linking systemic inflammation with high cardiovascular risk patient populations, genetic testing in pro-inflammatory populations, and a debate between using colchicine vs. ultra low LDL targets to reduce cardiovascular disease. The day will end with cases and practical lessons from cardio-rheumatology clinics. Question and Answer sessions will be spread throughout the day to encourage interaction and audience participation with interspersed panel discussions from experts describing their own experiences, practical approaches, and lessons learned from cardio-inflammatory clinics.
