In 2015, the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) Consensus Panel published a key statement focused on statin-associated muscle symptoms (SAMS). This paper provided important information to assist clinicians in the assessment and management of SAMS in their routine practice, and, uniquely, appraised what was known to date regarding the pathophysiology of SAMS.

More than 2 years later, SAMS continues to attract much interest. In a new commentary, scientific writer Jane Stock looks at key findings published since the 2015 Consensus paper, and summarises that "the EAS Consensus Panel statement on SAMS has undoubtedly driven new research into the aetiology, and assessment of SAMS, with the ultimate aim of improving management, and thus overcoming the detrimental impact of SAMS on clinical outcome".
