We prospectively followed 202 patients with ischemic heart failure who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute myocardial infarction (left ventricular [LV] ejection fraction <40%). Patients were divided into 2 groups: groups I (simvastatin group, n = 106, aged 60.8 +/- 10.3 years, men 71.7%) and II (non-simvastatin group, n = 96, aged 60.9 +/- 10.4 years, men 78.1%).
