Prevention is better than cure for killer cardiovascular disease
Date:7/6/2012

London (July 05 2012 ) -- European experts in cardiovascular medicine will today gather at a two day symposium to address the national agenda on cardiovascular disease prevention, held at Imperial College London and sponsored by leading independent academic and professional publisher SAGE.

One session at the conference, chaired by Professors Joep Perk and David Wood will focus on the new 2012 Joint European Societies' Guidelines on cardiovascular disease prevention in clinical practice, which will appear in August issue (volume 19, issue 4) of the European Society of Cardiology's European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, published by SAGE.

In the new joint European Guidelines, healthcare providers will find answers to key questions including:

  • What is CVD prevention?
  • Why is it needed?
  • Who should benefit from it?
  • How can CVD prevention be applied?
  • When is the right moment to act?
  • Where should prevention programmes be provided and implemented?

According to the experts behind the review, atherosclerotic CVD (furring of the arteries) remains the leading cause of premature death worldwide. CVD affects both men and women; of all deaths that occur before age 75 in Europe, 42% are due to CVD in women and 38% in men.

Prevention works. Over 50% of the reductions seen in coronary heart disease mortality relate to c
