Current practice guidelines provide recommendations for the secondary prevention of coronary heart disease. Following the publication of clinical trials in recent years, this review will highlight some controversial issues: the role of angiotensin and aldosterone antagonists after acute myocardial infarction; the effects of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors in patients with stable coronary heart disease and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction; high-intensity lowering of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; use of 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors in the elderly; and the targeting of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol with niacin.
