This Outpatient Clinic specializes in the diagnosis and management of lipid disorders regarding children and adolescents (between 2 and 16 years of age).
Any young individual with various types of dyslipidemias (including hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia and complex genetic variants) can visit or be referred to the clinic in order to receive appropriate management, according to the current International and European guidelines.
The clinic implements the so-called “cascade screening” in order to identify relatives of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree (if possible) with dyslipidemia, which are subsequently referred to the Outpatient Lipid Clinic for the adults.
The clinic has been started since 2009 and is situated in the first basement level of the University Hospital of Ioannina (in conjunction with the Outpatient Clinic of Pediatric Cardiology).
In addition to laboratory evaluation, an Ultrasound evaluation of the anatomy (i.e. carotid intima-media thickness, ΙΜΤ) and functionality of the vascular endothelium (flow-mediated dilation, FMD) is available.
Visiting hours: Thursday 12:30 - 14:00.
