The role of triple therapies: evidence and unmet needs
About the event
Dr. José Cardona, cardiologist from Panama, during his lecture emphasized the approach from these 3 actors is crucial, which is why the triad, Doctor-Patient-treatment to be successful requires a strong interaction between these 3 elements.
From the medical point of view, clinical inertia is a daily challenge, leaving the dual treatment to start a triple therapy and, as has been shown in different studies, the patient will finally end up with 3 drugs.
The patient's view is essential and should help them to understand that they have a chronic disease such as high blood pressure and that combinations help improve adherence to treatment.
And the third actor is the treatment, based on the international guidelines, which reinforce the concept of the use of single-pill combinations, has shown benefits in the patient, using molecules in a single tablet that demonstrate not only having reduced the blood pressure but also provide a reduction in long-term cardiovascular events.
