[Extract] Takagi et al1 performed a meta-analysis of the effects of statins on abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) expansion and briefly discussed possible influences of this medication on aneurysm biology. They report that treatment with statins was associated with a decreased AAA progression, which was based on the most recent available evidence at the time of submission (January 2010). However, as this topic is timely and much research is focused hereon, we would like to address some relevant recent advances in current knowledge.
