Intensive Lipid Lowering Treatment in Non-ST-elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome (NSTE-ACS) Patients

2014-08-27 03:16:59 | BioPortfolio

Summary

PCI has been one of the most common choice of treatments for patients with coronary artery disease, and studies indicated that intensive statin treatment before PCI could reduce adverse events as comparing to the placebo. In China, statin with regular dose is currently applied to the patients admitted for Non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Here we hypothesize that intensive statin treatment with arovastatin before PCI could further reduce clinical adverse events.

Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.

An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
