Advice

  • Should be used in conjunction with detailed history and physical to aid in identifying female patients who may benefit from statin therapy.
  • Should incorporate clinical judgment when determining a patient's risk for cardiovascular events and benefit of intervention.

Management

 

Risk classification

Recommendation

<5%

Unclear evidence for statin therapy.

5% to <10%

Minimal benefit of statin therapy compared to risk and cost of therapy in preventing a cardiovascular event in the next ten years.

10% to <20%

  • Discussion of lifestyle modification and initiation of statin therapy.
  • U.S. treatment guidelines recommend initiation of treatment with 10-year risk estimates >10%.
  • Understanding patient preference and motivation and frank discussion with patients about the risks and benefits of statin therapy in reducing cardiovascular events such as stroke, MI, and CVA in female patients over the next ten years.

>20%

Strongly recommend statin therapy in conjunction with lifestyle modification.
