In our regular feature, Editor-in-Chief Arnold von Eckardstein highlights interesting articles from recent issues of Atherosclerosis journal. The highlights are an easy way for you to get an overview of the issue content every month.

Clinical risk prediction rules play an important role for risk stratification and patient management in both primary and secondary prevention. Although the integration of clinical measures has superior prognostic performance compared to the use of single risk factors, they are limited in sensitivity and specificity. Typically, these limitations are addressed by imaging and liquid biomarkers. Novel algorithms and stratification for specific subgroups of patients, for example by age, gender, ethnicity, and comorbidities, is an alternative approach. Several articles of this issue of Atherosclerosis report such studies, as well as the development of novel clinical risk prediction rules for heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases such as aortic aneurysm.
