Effect of Lowering LDL Cholesterol Substantially Below Currently Recommended Levels in Patients With Coronary Heart Disease and Diabetes
TLDR
Among patients with clinically evident CHD and diabetes, intensive therapy with atorvastatin 80 mg significantly reduced the rate of major cardiovascular events by 25% compared with at ORVastatin 10 mg.
Ezetimibe Added to Statin Therapy after Acute Coronary Syndromes.
TLDR
When added to statin therapy, ezetimibe resulted in incremental lowering of LDL cholesterol levels and improved cardiovascular outcomes, and lowering LDL cholesterol to levels below previous targets provided additional benefit.
Intensive lipid-lowering with atorvastatin for secondary prevention in patients after coronary artery bypass surgery.
Intensive lipid lowering with atorvastatin in patients with coronary artery disease, diabetes, and chronic kidney disease.
TLDR
Patients with diabetes, stable coronary artery disease, and mild to moderate CKD experience marked reduction in cardiovascular events with intensive lipid lowering, in contrast to previous observations in patients with diabetes and end-stage renal disease.
Statin Intensity and Clinical Outcome in Patients with Stable Coronary Artery Disease and Very Low LDL-Cholesterol
TLDR
Evidence is provided that higher intensity statins are beneficial for cardiovascular outcomes in patients with stable CAD and very low LDL-C, and statins equivalent to or stronger than atorvastatin 20 mg are more effective than lower intensitystatins.
Achievement of LDL-cholesterol goal with statins after an st segment elevation myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Most patients with STEMI are prescribed statin therapy at discharge, and despite this, the target LDL-C is attained in a minority of the patients due to suboptimal statin dosing, which emphasizes the opportunities to improve outcomes of STEMI patients with evidence-based therapies.
Effect of two intensive statin regimens on progression of coronary disease.
TLDR
Maximal doses of rosuVastatin and atorvastatin resulted in significant regression of coronary atherosclerosis, with a low incidence of laboratory abnormalities and cardiovascular events.

Prevention of cardiovascular events and death with pravastatin in patients with coronary heart disease and a broad range of initial cholesterol levels.
TLDR
Pravastatin therapy reduced mortality from coronary heart disease and overall mortality, as compared with the rates in the placebo group, as well as the incidence of all prespecified cardiovascular events in patients with a history of myocardial infarction or unstable angina who had a broad range of initial cholesterol levels.
ACC/AHA/NHLBI Clinical Advisory on the Use and Safety of Statins.
TLDR
This American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association/National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute/ACC/AHA/NHLBI Clinical Advisory is intended to summarize for professionals the current understanding of statin use, focused on myopathy, and to provide updated recommendations for the appropriate use of statins, including cautions, contraindications, and safety monitoring for statin therapy.
Implications of Recent Clinical Trials for the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III Guidelines
TLDR
The trials confirm the benefit of cholesterol-lowering therapy in high-risk patients and support the ATP III treatment goal of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) <100 mg/dL, and confirm that older persons benefit from therapeutic lowering of LDL-C.
