Adverse effects of statin therapy: perception vs. the evidence – focus on glucose homeostasis, cognitive, renal and hepatic function, haemorrhagic stroke and cataract

ConclusionLong-term statin treatment is remarkably safe with a low risk of clinically relevant adverse effects as defined above; statin-associated muscle symptoms were discussed in a previous Consensus Statement. Importantly, the established cardiovascular benefits of statin therapy far outweigh the risk of adverse effects.

The objective of this study was to examine the effect of metabolic syndrome on 30-day postoperative complications following corrective surgery for the adult spinal deformity (ASD). Summary of Background Data: Metabolic syndrome has been shown to increase the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Few studies have examined the effect of metabolic syndrome on patients with ASD undergoing surgery. Materials and Methods: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent spinal fusion for ASD. Patients were divided into 2 groups based on the presence or absence of metabolic syndrome, which was d...
