To evaluate whether the early use of statins would reduce cardiovascular events, we conducted a prospective, randomized trial that included 486 patients with acute myocardial infarction and normal total cholesterol levels, of whom 241 patients received statin therapy. The statin group had a lower risk of congestive heart failure and symptomatic myocardial ischemia, which indicates that early treatment with statins reduces recurrent cardiovascular events.
