BACKGROUND This study analyzed the effect of statins on clinical outcomes after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and the rate of restenosis. STUDY DESIGN We performed a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data on 500 consecutive CEAs followed at 1, 6, and 12 months and every year. RESULTS There were 299 patients on statins vs 201 without. Combined perioperative MI/death rates were 2.7% vs 4% (p = 0.416) and MI/stroke/death rates were 4% vs 5% (p = 0.607) for statins vs no statins… CONTINUE READING
