Wonderdrug

Statins have been on a number of healthcare blogs I read of late. First on Medical Rants a link to a report on statins preventing implanted defib use in patients who used them regularly.

Now the Los Angeles times references a study where high dose statin use actually unclogged arteries. So long stents and open heart surgery?

In The Pipeline's "The Big Statin Pillowfight" comments on the flurry of cholesterol studies and why they're being funded.
