Abstract :

There is not a consensus of opinion on statin therapy of dyslipidemia in the oldest of the very of patient population. This is a case report of a 75 year old woman who sustained an acute myocardial infarction. Because her attending physician did nothing in the way of treating her dyslipidemia, the patient began to attend the author├ó┬?┬?s clinic. She started to take stain therapy and aspirin. Her initial course was marked by recurrent chest pains, and a calcium channel blocker was added. The chest pains subsequently resolved and the patient has done well on super-stain therapy, combined with aspirin and calcium channel therapy- with no other interventions, medical or surgical. She is doing well, living in her own home, at age 101├?┬Ż years. This is a report of a unique case showing that optimal medical therapy including super-stain therapy can be effective in controlling dyslipidemia even in the oldest of the very old patients with dyslipidemia.
