Abstract

The beneficial effect of statin therapy has been well established for both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Nevertheless, it remains under-used among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We aimed to investigate the impact of statin therapy across a wide spectrum of CKD patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
