VEJAR, Margarita et al. Adherence to pharmacologic treatment in secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Rev Chil Cardiol [online]. 2016, vol.35, n.3, pp.270-282. ISSN 0718-8560.

This paper outlines the position of the Department of Cardiovascular Prevention from the Chilean Society of Cardiology regarding the use of the "polypill". The international and local evidence regarding the benefits of the polypill compared to conventional therapy is reviewed. The benefits and some limitations of the polypill are outlined, along with cost-effective considerations. The increased adherence to treatment and the better clinical results of this strategy are put forward. The used of the polypill in different groups of subjects, especially those recovered from a recent myocardial in-farction, is recommended for individual patients and in Chilean cardiovascular prevention programs from the Ministry of Health.
