For more than a decade, the Preventive Cardiology Clinic at Children’s Mercy has been providing comprehensive evaluation, risk factor counseling and management for children with familial dyslipidemia, lifestyle-induced dyslipidemia and chronic diseases that associated with development of atherosclerosis.
Each year, the clinic sees approximately 300 patients.
The Preventive Cardiology Clinic began tracking patient outcomes in 2008 and has built a database that includes demographic, anthropometric, blood pressure, clinical and laboratory information on more than 610 children with dyslipidemia and other atherosclerosis-promoting factors.
Geetha Raghuveer, MD is here to explain how the database has been used as a resource for patient screening and research studies.
