Title:
Safety and Effectiveness of Statins for Prevention of Recurrent Myocardial Infarction in 12 156 Typical Older Patients: A Quasi-Experimental Study.

Ble, A.; Hughes, P. M.; Delgado, J.; Masoli, Jane A.; Bowman, K.; Zirk-Sadowski, J.; Mujica Mota, R. E.; Henley, W. E.; Melzer, David
Abstract:
There is limited evidence on statin risk and effectiveness for patients aged 80+. We estimated risk of recurrent myocardial infarction, muscle-related and other adverse events, and statin-related incremental costs in "real-world" older patients treated with statins versus no statins.
