ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus
For certain patients, the ACCF's ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus may be a more appropriate risk calculator. This version combines the original ASCVD Risk Estimator with the 2016 Million Hearts Longitudinal ASCVD Risk Assessment Tool. With the same functionalities as the original ASCVD Risk Estimator, it provides sex- and race-specific estimates of the 10-year or lifetime percentage risk for ASCVD-defined as coronary death or nonfatal MI, or fatal or nonfatal stroke.
The calculator takes into account age, sex, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and whether the patient has diabetes, is taking medication for hypertension, or is a smoker. It also includes additional capabilities to estimate and track change in risk over time, forecast potential benefit of specific risk-lowering interventions, and calculate initial 10-year ASCVD risk for patients who have already initiated statin therapy.5,7,8
