KEY MESSAGES 
  • Prominent cardiologists disagree about the accuracy of a new risk calculator developed as part of updated U.S. guidelines for cardiovascular disease prevention.
  • The risk score generated by the calculator should inform patient conversations regarding treatment, and should not automatically trigger a statin prescription.

Mr. Lomangino has disclosed that he is a consultant to the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation and the American Association of Diabetes Educators.
