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.

It is now widely accepted that lowering of plasma cholesterol is a mainstay in the management of cardiovascular risk. However, the lower-the-better concept is not perfectly translated into clinical practice. Reasons and consequences of this gap are addressed by several articles in this issue of Atherosclerosis: incomplete adherence, very high risk or cholesterol levels at baseline, difficult differential diagnosis of rare dyslipidemia, finding the right time-point to initiate treatment, monitoring treatment success in the vasculature, or unknown reasons of hypercholesterolemia.
