Abstract

Background: Statins promptly lower rates of adverse cardiovascular events in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). These therapeutic properties may be mediated by the effects of statins on key hemostatic factors. This study examined the immediate effects of fluvastatin on plasma free tissue factor pathway inhibitor (fTFPI) and soluble endothelial protein C receptor (sEPCR) concentrations in patients with unstable angina or non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction.
