  Purpose

The purpose of the study is to establish the proportion of patients on lipid-lowering pharmacological treatment reaching the LDL-C goals according to the NCEP ATP III/updated 2004 NCEP ATP III guidelines, overall and by country, to establish the proportion of patients on lipid-lowering pharmacological treatment reaching the LDL-C goals according to the NCEP ATP III/updated 2004 NCEP ATP III in the following sub-populations:

  • Primary/secondary prevention patients.
  • Patients with metabolic syndrome (according to NCEP III definition). And to establish the proportion of patients on lipid-lowering pharmacological treatment reaching the LDL-C goals according to the Third Joint European Task Force guidelines/national guidelines, in the survey population and in the following sub-populations:

    • Primary/secondary prevention patients.
    • Patients with metabolic syndrome.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To establish the proportion of patients on lipid-lowering pharmacological treatment reaching the LDL-C goals according to the NCEP ATP III/updated 2004 NCEP ATP III guidelines, overall and by country. [ Time Frame: 6 months- One visit only, no follow up visits. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion patients on lipid-lowering drugs (LLD) reaching the LDL-C goals according to the NCEP ATP III/ updated 2004 NCEP ATP III in subgroups: Primary/secondary prevention patients; Patients with metabolic syndrome ( NCEP III). [ Time Frame: 6 months- One visit only, no follow up visits. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion patients on LLD reaching the LDL-C goals according to the Third Joint European Task Force guidelines/national guidelines, in the survey population and in sub-populations: Primary/secondary prevention patients; Patients with metabolic syndrome. [ Time Frame: 6 months- One visit only, no follow up visits. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To identify determinants (e.g. patient and physician characteristics, country-specific guidelines or recommendations) for undertreatment of hypercholesterolemia. [ Time Frame: 6 months- One visit only, no follow up visits. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
