Costs and Effectiveness of Cholesterol Screening in the Elderly

Costs and Effectiveness of Cholesterol Screening in the Elderly

Date: April 1989
Creator: United States. Congress. Office of Technology Assessment.
Description: This paper reviews the evidence that elevation of serum cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease in the elderly and that the detection and treatment of hypercholesterolemia in an elderly individual who does not have clinically apparent heart disease will diminish overall morbidity or mortality. It also estimates health care expenditures associated with screening and treatment of hypercholesterolemia in the elderly.
