Statins: discontinuation after a previous MI can lead to a MACE or death

Discontinuation of statins


http://www.medpagetoday.com/Cardiology/Prevention/54958


It is a cohort study. But if we take in account that a lot of patients are not good candidates for primary prevention by statins (those who have no CVD prior first statin use) and the fact that we don't know how efficient was the statin treatment in patients who don't discontinue, this paper must be a red alamr for non discontinuation of statins after a first MACE and for at least the 5 next years.
