Non-ST-segment elevation ACS: Should all patients undergo cardiac catheterization?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of all clinical trials comparing routine invasive strategy with selective invasive strategy in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome. We did not find either strategy to offer an advantage over the other, even when we excluded trials that did not use coronary stents and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors.
