    Identification and management of heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. Workshop. USA, 1992/07/20.

    Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (hFH) is one of the most common monogenic disorders with serious health consequences, affecting approximately 1 in 500 persons in the United States.

    Persons with hFH generally manifest elevations of low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol throughout their lives and have a markedly increased risk of death from coronary artery disease.

    The hypercholesterolemia of hFH is responsive to medication and diet, and, if detected early, aggressive LDL cholesterol control may prevent or substantially delay cardiovascular disease.
