High Dose Atorvastatin for Preventing Periprocedural Ischemic Brain Damage During Carotid Artery Stenting

Chinese patients with carotid stenosis scheduled for selective CAS will be randomized into two groups. The High-dose Atorvastatin group will receive Atorvastatin 80 mg QD from 3 days before to 3 days after CAS, then 20 mg QD until 30 days after CAS, while the Conventional-dose Atorvastatin group will receive ...

Effects of Nicotinic Acid Plus Simvastatin Versus Simvastatin Alone on Carotid and Femoral Intima-Media Thickness in Patients With Peripheral Artery Disease (NASCIT)

Dyslipidaemia is characterized by low plasma levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c), elevated triglycerides and an increase in low density lipoprotein (LDL-c) particles, and has been unequivocally established as a most important cardiovascular risk factor. While statins are effective in reducing plasma levels of LDL-c, these drugs have only modest ...

Effect of Short Term Atorvastatin Treatment 80mg/Day on Early Regression of Carotid Artery Atherosclerotic Lesions

Candidates for bilateral carotid endarterectomy (CEA) who meet study criteria will provide informed consent before their randomization. Before the first CEA, the patient will have MRI, US, and EBCT exams of both carotids. The most occlusive plaque will be resected at the first CEA. The patient will then receive atorvastatin ...
