Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is broadly defined here as coronary artery disease (CAD), including acute coronary syndrome (ACS), a history of myocardial infarction (MI), and stable or unstable angina; cerebrovascular disease, including stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA); peripheral arterial disease (PAD); and other atherosclerotic diseases. The principal goal of treating ASCVD is to reduce recurrent cardiovascular (CV) events and decrease mortality. Drug treatment is individualized to the diagnosis but generally involves lipid-modifying, neurohormonal blocking, and antithrombotic therapies. Despite the heavy entrenchment of generics, branded options of note include the lipid-modifying agents Repatha, Praluent, and Vascepa and the oral antithrombotics Brilinta and Xarelto. Using a longitudinal claims data analysis, we demonstrate how ASCVD is being pharmacologically managed for newly diagnosed and recently treated patients in the United States.
