          Take-Away Points of the Presentation

          1. PCSK9 is a protease which binds to the LDL receptor and leads to increased LDL blood levels. This is the mechanism of how inhibition of PCSK9 leads to LDL lowering in the bloodstream.

          2. In patients with stable CAD without clinical heart failure, the addition of Ivabradine to standard therapy to decrease heart rate did not improve outcomes.

          3. Sodium polystyrene sulfonate should not be given to patients with suspected ileus or bowel obstruction.
