Statin therapy and long-term adverse limb outcomes in patients with peripheral artery disease: insights from the REACH registry
Conclusion Among patients with PAD in the REACH registry, statin use was associated with an ~18% lower rate of adverse limb outcomes, including worsening symptoms, peripheral revascularization, and ischaemic amputations. These findings suggest that statin therapy not only reduces the risk of adverse cardiovascular events, but also favourably affects limb prognosis in patients with PAD.
