Abstract

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) often occurs in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). This study aimed to observe the influence of different dosages of rosuvastatin on the prognosis of AMI patients with AF.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed an observational, retrospective cohort study in Jinan, China, in which 323 AMI patients were recruited. All patients were randomized to receive optimal medication treatment and 10 mg or 20 mg of rosuvastatin. Holter monitor results, serum lipid levels, and heart function were recorded. We used multivariate Cox and Kaplan-Meier analyses to assess the independent factors and differences in AF and ischemia events and safety of rosuvastatin administered at different dosages.

RESULTS: TC, LDL-C, and TG at 1 and 12 months were significantly lower compared with those observed prior to treatment in both groups. The heart function of both groups was significantly improved after 12 months of treatment, especially in the 20 mg group. Multivariate Cox analysis showed that different dosages of rosuvastatin, age, smoking, drinking alcohol, and diabetes are independent factors related to the occurrence of AF and ischemic events. In addition, according to Kaplan-Meier analysis, no significant difference in adverse clinical events existed at different dosages of rosuvastatin.

CONCLUSIONS: Treatment with rosuvastatin can reduce the serum lipid level and improve cardiac function. Different dosages of rosuvastatin, age, smoking, drinking alcohol, and diabetes are independent risk factors for AF and ischemia events. The results suggested it is safe to use 20 mg rosuvastatin in the 12 months after hospital admission.
