Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 30-day MACCEs after PCI [ Time Frame: 30-day after PCI ]
    30-day major adverse cardio- and cerebralvascular events (combined endpoints of cardiac death, myocardial infarction, stroke, stent thrombosis and target vessel revascularization ) after PCI

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • changes in myocardial biomarkers (troponin I, Creatine kinase-MB) [ Time Frame: 24 hours after PCI ]
    changes in myocardial biomarkers (troponin I, Creatine kinase-MB)

Estimated Enrollment: 1000
Study Start Date: January 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: standard care group
patients receive atorvastatin 20 mg/d
Drug: Atorvastatin
Active Comparator: intensive rosuvastatin
administrated with rosuvastatin 20mg 12h prior PCI, then 10mg 2h prior PCI; followed by 10 mg/d for 30 days after PCI
Drug: Rosuvastatin
Active Comparator: intensive atorvastatin
patients will be administrated with atorvastatin 80mg 12h prior PCI, then 40mg 2h prior PCI, followed by 40 mg/d for 30 days after PCI;
Drug: Atorvastatin

Detailed Description:
1800 elderly patients (>65 yr) with coronary artery disease undergoing elective PCI were randomized in 2:1 fashion into either intensive statin group or standard care group. Patients in intensive statin group is further randomized into two subgroups: administrated with either atorvastatin 80mg 12h prior PCI, then 40mg 2h prior PCI, followed by 40 mg/d for 30 days after PCI; or rosuvastatin 20mg 12h prior PCI, then 10mg 2h prior PCI; followed by 10 mg/d for 30 days after PCI, while the standard care group receives atorvastatin 20 mg/d. After angiography, patients who are not undergoing PCI procedure will be excluded from the study as selection failure. The last visit will be at 6 months after PCI. Clinical data such as troponin, CK-MB, Scr, CCR, ALT, AST before and 24h to 48h after procedure will be recorded. 1000 eligible patients will be finally enrolled.The study will be conducted at 12 centers in China.

Ages Eligible for Study:   65 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

65-80 years old Patients undergoing for elective percutaneous coronary intervention Evidence of a personally signed and dated informed consent document

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients undergoing emergency percutaneous coronary intervention
  • Taking or, needing to take atorvastatin over than 20mg/d or any other equivalent statin (such as simvastatin 20mg/d, pruvastatin 40mg/d, fluvastatin 80mg/d or rovastatin 5mg/d ) in the next 6 months, or needing to take fibrates or niacins simultaneously according to investigators' judgment.
  • LDL-C < 1.8mmol/L in patients without statin therapy
  • Endstage congestive heart failure, or LVEF < 30%
  • Active hepatic disease or hepatic dysfunction, or AST/ALT > 1.5UNL
  • Myopathy or increased creatine kinase (CK>2 UNL)
  • WBC < 4×109/L or PLT < 100×109/L
  • Severe renal dysfunction(Scr > 3 mg/dl or 264μmol/L)
  • Allergic or experienced serious adverse reaction to HMG-CoA reductase, or ineligible to take statin as investigator's judgment
  • Severe aortic valve stenosis or severe mitral stenosis, Obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, pericardial diseases
  • Accompanied with malignant disease or other disease, which cause life expectancy < 6 months
  • Participating in other interventional clinical trials using drugs or devices
  • Patients with any condition which, in the investigator's judgment, might increase the risk to the subject for any adverse event or abnormal laboratory finding
