Özet

Background: Statins may provide additional benefits in patients with cardiac failure due to their pleiotropic effects besides their cholesterol-lowering actions. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the impact of 12-week fluvastatin therapy on the inflammatory cytokines and the ventricular performance markers in patients with heart failure.
