Missed by Risk Calculators, Few Young MI Patients Were Previously on Statins
Only a minority of patients in their 50s or younger who experience a first myocardial infarction are on statin therapy prior to their event, according to new data from the YOUNG-MI Registry. Even more striking, researchers say, is that among those not on the drugs, more than half wouldn't have met the guideline-specified criteria for statin therapy in the first place.
