A 42-year-old woman under your care for the management of obesity calls you because she has a sister who had a pulmonary embolism. The patient recently read that statin medications are associated with a lower risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and wonders whether she should take a statin drug to prevent the development of pulmonary emboli.
