Dr. Dimitrios Richter,
One of the latest changes in ESC Guidelines is to insert a section about gaps in evidence. The latest European Guidelines on CVD Prevention deal with various risk factors and their integration into a risk score, in which, although we are improving, we still have gaps in our evidence-based knowledge.
In the following article the most important gaps in evidence from the 2016 European Guidelines on CVD Prevention in Clinical Practice will be highlighted.
For some of these gaps there are trials already in progress, other gaps will be more difficult to get an answer in the near future.
