Post Omega-3 Fatty Acids, but Not Statin Therapy, Cuts Mortality
Omega-3 fatty acids, but not statin therapy, cuts mortality and hospitalizations in heart failure.

Speaking to the media, Tognoni said that the prescription of rosuvastatin or any statin to patients with heart failure should not be considered because the use of the cholesterol-lowering drugs does not translate into any clinically meaningful benefit for heart-failure patients. In his editorial, Fonarow comments that the findings from GISSI-HF, alongside the Controlled Rosuvastatin in Multinational Trial in Heart Failure (CORONA), "establish that, although statin therapy lowers concentrations of LDL cholesterol, is well tolerated, and seems reasonably safe, it does not produce meaningful improvements in survival in patients with chronic heart failure."
