AF statin guidelines could change following trial

Thursday May 5th, 2016

International guidelines on preventing atrial fibrillation could change after a major trial raised questions about the benefits of taking statins before and after heart surgery.

Doctors behind the international Statin Therapy In Cardiac Surgery (STICS) trial, which was led by the University of Oxford, UK, and funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), revealed that short-term statin treatment provided no benefits to heart surgery patients and actually increased the risk of developing kidney damage.

The study, published last night (4 May, 2016) in the New England Journal of Medicine, concluded that there is no clinical benefit in having statin therapy for heart surgery, which could lead to a change in guidelines.
