OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine the efficacy of high-dose atorvastatin in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND Previous randomized trials have demonstrated that statin pre-treatment reduced major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) in patients with stable angina pectoris and acute coronary syndrome. However, no randomized studies have been carried out with STEMI patients in a primary PCI… CONTINUE READING
