Summary: For patients over 80 years old admitted to hospital for acute myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, or chronic CAD, retrospective data suggests an approach of not taking a statin after hospital discharge appears to be associated with the same risk of all-cause mortality over the next 3 years as an approach of starting statin therapy at the time of hospital discharge.
