  1. Diagnosis and case finding in familial hypercholesterolemia.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

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

    Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (hFH) is known to be associated with a high risk for development of coronary disease.

    However, several issues still remain as to whether this condition merits a special approach to diagnosis and case finding.

    It appears that hFH meets the World Health Organization criteria as a condition worthy of a screening program.

    However, none of several current strategies appears to be successful in the identification of even a majority of hFH cases.
