Puzzling lipid panel
An excellent presentation, possibly your best yet.I suspect that no in depth comment was made regarding the lipid panel but it struck me as unusual as the numbers did not "add up" to what one would expected from the Friedewald formula. Would you recommend that the patient undergo a VAP lipid panel to determine subfractions of cholesterol not measured with the traditional lipid panel?

The case was a “real” patient and the lipid panel that was presented was his actual panel. We recommend that a traditional lipid panel be obtained in this patient. We do not believe that the additional information that the VAP panel provides any more information than the traditional panel in terms of an evidence and consensus based approach to cardiovascular risk reduction.
