One-third of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and baseline hyperlipidemia do not appear to reach an LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) goal of less than 100 mg/dL after 6 months, according to American research. Patients who did not meet the LDL-C goal during this timeframe were more often discharged without a statin than those who attained the goal (21% vs 9%).

Abstract: American Heart Journal, January 2013.
