According to various national and international guidelines, the target LDL-C level is <100 mg/dl for patients with established coronary heart disease (CHD) or CHD risk equivalent (CE). We aimed to investigate aspects of the lipid-lowering management of patients at high cardiovascular risk in-hospital care and the achievement of target values.
