Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

We wish to examine whether short-term statin therapy, commenced  before or on the day of noncardiac vascular surgery and continuing for at least 48 hours afterwards, improves patient outcomes including the risk of complications, pain, quality of life and length of hospital stay. We will also examine whether the effect of statin therapy on these outcomes changes depending on the dose of statin received.
