AbstractIntroductionSURF CHD (Survey of Risk Factors in Coronary Heart Disease) is a clinical audit on secondary prevention among CHD patients aiming to simplify recording and assessment of risk factors and medication. The second wave of the study (SURF CHD II) uses a novel recruitment strategy that provides a wider and more representative picture of CHD secondary prevention.MethodsThe survey is conducted during outpatient visits and collects data on demographics, risk factor history and measurements, and medications. The novel recruitment strategy is based on the network of European Association of Preventive Cardiology (E...

In this study, our aim was to compare the real world lipid profile of type 2 diabetes patients with guideline recommendations for dyslipidemia. Four hundred and sixty eight consecutive patients referred to Outpatient Diabetes Clinic of Istanbul Medeniyet University were recruited. Patient anthropometric measurements (height, weight, waist circumference), biochemical test results (LDL cholesterol (LDL-c), triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, HbA1c) and treatment modalities were recorded. Patients were stratified into cardiovascular risk categories according to the risk factors and their treatment dose was compared to the recomme...
