Recent prospective cohort studies have shown that patients discharged on statins after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are at lower risks of repeat revascularization and mortality when compared to those not on statins after discharge. However, few randomized clinical trials among post-PCI patients confirmed these beneficial effects. It is needed to evaluate the effects of post-procedural statin therapy on individual clinical outcomes to facilitate the further investigation on… CONTINUE READING
