Impact of long-term statin therapy on postprocedural myocardial infarction in patients undergoing nonemergency percutaneous coronary intervention.

Abstract

Periprocedural statin therapy has been shown to decrease the rate of myocardial infarctions (MIs) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, the impact of long-term statin therapy on postprocedure MI remains unknown. We examined the impact of long-term statin therapy on cardiac enzyme (cardiac troponin I [cTnI] and creatine kinase-MB [CK-MB… (More)
