Key Words Cirrhosis; Liver disease; Statins; Safety; Efficiency
Core Tip Several observational studies of statins in patients with liver disease were published, but they were highly biased. On the other hand, only one randomized controlled trial (RCT) improved survival in Child-Pugh class A/B patients but did not reduce variceal rebleeding. Finally, the dose and type of statin to be used should be defined. This review concludes that news RCTs are necessary before endorsing statins use in patients with chronic liver disease.
