Abstract

Although an initial case series suggested that use of statins in pregnancy carried teratogenic risk, a recent meta-analysis of controlled observational studies has failed to corroborate this. A large number of potentially beneficial uses of statins in pregnant women have prompted a new evaluation of the risk-benefit ratio of these agents in pregnancy.
