There is some evidence to suggest that high-dose statin provides greater benefit compared with regular-dose and low-dose statin in the prevention of contrast-induced acute kidney injury.
In people with cardiovascular disease, statins including atorvastatin, do not reduce the risk of kidney failure but have shown to modestly reduce the progressive decline in kidney function and the severity of protein excretion in urine. Statins, including atorvastatin, before heart surgery, do not prevent acute kidney injury.
