Abstract

Besides its potent LDL-cholesterol lowering effect, statins have proven to be beneficial in secondary prevention of myocardial infarction, reduce stroke, and also total mortality. Although the evidence of a beneficial role in secondary prevention is unequivocal, their role in primary prevention is still discussed controversially.
