Abstract

Low-dose rosuvastatin would be more effective than fluvastatin in improving arterial stiffness in high-risk Japanese patients with dyslipidemia. The results suggest that improvement in arterial stiffness by rosuvastatin mainly depends on its strong lipid-lowering effects, whereas that by fluvastatin is strongly dependent on the pleiotropic effects, especially an anti-inflammatory action.
