Abstract

1. Yearly screening of liver recipients with serum cholesterol, triglycerides, and lipoproteins, and assessment for risk factors for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, is an important component of comprehensive post transplant care. 2. Revised guidelines and target levels of LDL-cholesterol levels specific for moderate and high cardiovascular risk patients have been recently revised. 3. Transplant physicians should be aware of advances in the management of post transplant arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and nicotine dependence.
