Perioperative statins: More than lipid-lowering?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Preliminary evidence indicates that statin drugs may be beneficial when given in the perioperative period. Although more studies are needed to draw firm conclusions, the acute nonlipid pleiotropic effects of statins may improve patient outcomes, especially for patients at the highest risk.
