Lipid-Lowering Agents

European Heart Journal ( 2019 ) 40 ( Supplement ), 3255

Background: Although European guideline recommends that statin should be given to all patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), irrespective of cholesterol concentration, limited studies were focused on the long-term effects of statin therapy between ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI) and non-ST-segment elevation MI (NSTEMI).

Purpose: The authors conducted the study to compare the relative beneficial role of statin on 2-year major clinical outcomes between STEMI and NSTEMI in patients who underwent successful PCI with DES.

Methods: Finally, a total of 26317 AMI patients who underwent stent implantation and who were prescribed the statin were enrolled and they were separated into two groups; the STEMI group (n=15002) and the NSTEMI group (n=11315). The clinical endpoint was the occurrence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) defined as all-cause death, recurrent myocardial infarction (re-MI), total coronary revascularization (target lesion revascularization [TLR], target vessel revascularization [TVR], non-TVR) during 2-year follow-up period.

Results: After propensity score-matched (PSM) analysis, two PSM groups (7746 pairs, n=15492, C-statistic = 0.766) were generated. In the total study population, the cumulative incidences of MACE, all-cause death, and cardiac death were significantly higher in the NSTEMI group. However, after PSM, the cumulative incidence of all-cause death (Hazard ratio, 1.386; 95% CI, 1.133–1.696; p=0.002) was significantly higher in the NSTEMI group. The cumulative incidences of MACE, cardiac death, re-MI, total revascularization, TLR, TVR, and non-TVR were similar between the two groups (Table 1).

Conclusion: The mortality reduction capability of statin was more prominent in the STEMI group compared with the NSTEMI group.
