We compared short- and intermediate-term effects on lipid profiles, fibrinolytic parameter, and endothelial function between pitavastatin and atorvastatin. Short-term improvement of endothelial function was superior with pitavastatin compared to atorvastatin therapy. Pitavastatin could be a potentially better therapeutic choice for lipid-lowering and early alterations in endothelial function. Our study provides an important basis on which further trials involving larger numbers of patients may be studied prospectively.
