Cardiovascular Events Based On Statin Initiation In The Elderly
Comparison Of Cardiovascular Event Rates In Elderly Patients With Newly Initiated Atorvastatin Or Simvastatin
The purpose of this study is to compare rates and risk of primary cardiovascular events among elderly patients newly initiating therapy with atorvastatin or simvastatin. The specific objectives for this project are to: 1) examine the demographic and clinical characteristics of the elderly patients in whom atorvastatin or simvastatin was newly initiated; and 2) compare cardiovascular event rates in elderly patients in whom atorvastatin or simvastatin was newly initiated.
All subjects meeting sample definition, all inclusion criteria, and none of the exclusion criteria.

Non-Probability Sample
This study included commercial health plan members and Medicare Advantage Part D enrollees ages 65 years and older with a prescription for atorvastatin or simvastatin filled between 01 July 2006 and 30 November 2008 (subject identification period). The first observed atorvastatin or simvastatin fill during the subject identification period was defined as the index drug and the fill date was defined as the index date. A 12-month period prior to the index date (defined as the pre-index period) was used for identification of comorbid exclusionary conditions. The 12-month period prior to index date was also used for assessment of pre-index patient characteristics. Patients were observed for a minimum of 3 months (following index date) until the earlier of either 1) disenrollment from the health plan or 2) 28 February 2009 (post-index period). The pre- and post-index periods in combination were defined as the analytic period.
