Abstract

Infections may trigger acute cardiovascular events. Aspirin and statin are pivotal for the prevention of acute cardiovascular events, and may ameliorate the pro-inflammatory and pro-coagulatory processes of bacteraemia. We sought to examine the association between current use of aspirin and statins and risk for mortality as well as acute myocardial infarction and stroke after community-acquired bacteraemia (CAB).
