Statin associated muscle Afflictions forum Jan 13 & 14th 2017

Program and speakers’ biographies



Why a TMA consensus building Forum on Statin Associated Muscle Afflictions?

Statins have consistently been shown to reduce cardiovascular events, and their continued use remains the standard of care, especially in high-risk populations. Unfortunately, statins have side effects that make them intolerant to 10 to 20 percent of individuals. Statin intolerance is associated with more hospitalizations for cardiovascular events in patients previously hospitalized for myocardial infarction. The most common and reproducible manifestation of statin intolerance results from statin associated muscle complaints (SAMS). In order to reduce cardiovascular morbidity, reduce the burden of medical costs and improve the quality of life for patients who are intolerant to statins, the major objective of this conference is to collaborate on clinically relevant and validated tools for the identification of SAMS that are useful for patients of different ethnicities, races and regions of the world; develop clinical algorithms that provide a rationale and evidence-based approach to the re-introduction of statins; and provide guidance based on peer-reviewed manuscripts and published reports for the use of non-statin cholesterol lowering therapies.

This conference includes Forum members to offer their reviews of professional society consensus statements with the specific goal of establishing useful consistent terminology and clinical algorithms with standardize definitions which will improve communication among researchers, clinicians, and others working in this important area.
