BACKGROUND: Fear of complications related to the procedure and unclear benefits in elderly patients are common reasons for invasive angiography being withheld. METHODS: We searched PubMed and Embase from inception until February 2016 for studies that enrolled individuals older than 75 years with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) and allocated patients to either an invasive or conservative strategy. RESULTS: Thirteen studies (four randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and nine observational studies) enrolling 832,007 elderly NSTE-ACS patients were analysed...

Non-ST elevation-acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) includes NSTE myocardial infarction and unstable angina. This patient population forms approximately two-thirds of all hospital admissions for ACS in the United States each year and is associated with an in-hospital mortality of 5%. NSTE-ACS is primarily due to an acute change in the supply and demand balance of coronary perfusion and myocardial oxygen consumption, because of the significant coronary artery obstruction presenting as plaque rupture or erosion...

BACKGROUND: Many patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS) are medically managed without coronary revascularization. The reasons vary and may impact prognosis. METHODS: EPICOR Asia (NCT01361386) is a prospective study of hospital survivors post-ACS enrolled in 218 hospitals from 8 countries/regions in Asia (06/2011-05/2012). All medically managed NSTE-ACS patients were classified into 3 groups: 1) no coronary angiography (CAG-); 2) non-significant coronary artery disease (CAD) on angiogram (CAG+ CAD-); and 3) significant CAD (CAG+ CAD+)...

BACKGROUND: Despite the advances in cardiovascular medicine, acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is still a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Synergy between PCI ™ with TAXUS and Cardiac Surgery (SYNTAX) score is used to determine the extensivity and complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD). Renal resistive index (RRI), a renal Doppler ultrasound parameter, is used to detect renal hemodynamics. Although some risk factors for CAD, including hypertension and diabetes mellitus were demonstrated to have an association with RRI, direct relationship between the presence...

INTRODUCTION: There is an expectation that with the adoption of more sensitive cardiac troponin (cTn) assays, unstable angina would become a rarity. However, recent data from the SWEDEHEART registry demonstrated that 15% of patients admitted with non ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) still were regarded having unstable angina. We aimed to further investigate the clinical characteristics and outcome of these patients. METHODS: Retrospective registry-based analysis (SWEDEHEART) including 3204 unstable patients, 18,194 non ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients and 977 controls without acute cardiovascular disease...

BACKGROUND: Although there are sex differences in management and outcome of acute coronary syndromes (ACS), sex is not a component of Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk score (RS) for in-hospital mortality prediction. We sought to determine the prognostic utility of GRACE RS in men and women, and whether its predictive accuracy would be augmented through sex-based modification of its components. METHODS: Canadian men and women enrolled in GRACE and Canadian Registry of Acute Coronary Events were stratified as ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) or non-ST-segment elevation ACS (NSTE-ACS)...

BACKGROUND: To this day, there is no data concerning guideline adherence on P2Y12-inhibitors in Austria. Prasugrel and ticagrelor have been shown to be superior to clopidogrel in the treatment of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). However, recent data from European registries showed a reluctant prescription policy with rates of clopidogrel at discharge ranging from 35 to 55%. METHODS: In this prospective, multi-centre registry we assessed prescription rates of P2Y12-inhibitors in patients with ACS in four Austrian PCI centres...

The PRASFIT-ACS study showed the antiplatelet effect 2-4 h after prasugrel loading. However, there is little information about the antiplatelet effect <2 h after prasugrel loading dose, especially in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). There had not been any comparison between ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non-ST-segment elevation ACS (NSTE-ACS). Fifty patients with ACS (15 with STEMI and 35 with NSTE-ACS) were enrolled. They received a 20-mg prasugrel loading dose followed by a maintenance dose of 3...

BACKGROUND: Early invasive strategies and antithrombotic treatments are key treatments of non-ST-segment-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS). Few studies have examined the use of these strategies in patients with NSTE-ACS in China. This study aimed to assess the applications of invasive strategies and antithrombotic treatments in patients with NSTE-ACS and compare their outcomes. METHODS AND RESULTS: A nationwide registry study, Improving CCC (Care for Cardiovascular Disease in China) ACS project, was launched in 2014 as a collaborative study of the American Heart Association and Chinese Society of Cardiology (CSC), with 142 participating hospitals reporting details of clinical management and outcomes of patients with NSTE-ACS...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines suggest that "upstream" P2Y12 receptor antagonists should be considered in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS). HYPOTHESIS: Early use of ticagrelor in patients managed with an invasive strategy would be more effective than clopidogrel because of its more rapid onset of action and greater potency. METHODS: In the PLATO trial, 6792 NSTE-ACS patients were randomized to ticagrelor or clopidogrel (started prior to angiography) and underwent angiography within 72 hours of randomization...

There is limited data comparing effectiveness of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) versus percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS). We compared the long-term outcomes of the 2 revascularization strategies in 1,246 patients presented with NSTE-ACS for left main or multivessel coronary artery disease. Data were pooled from the Randomized Comparison of Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery and Everolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation in the Treatment of Patients with Multivessel Coronary Artery Disease (BEST) trial, the Premier of Randomized Comparison of Bypass Surgery versus Angioplasty Using Sirolimus-Eluting Stent in Patients with Left Main Coronary Artery Disease (PRECOMBAT) trial, and the Synergy between PCI with Taxus and Cardiac Surgery (SYNTAX) trial...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) derived enhanced benefit with dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with prasugrel vs. clopidogrel. The risk profile and treatment response to DAPT for medically managed ACS patients with DM remains uncertain. METHODS: The TRILOGY ACS trial compared aspirin + prasugrel vs. aspirin + clopidogrel for up to 30months in non-ST-segment elevation (NSTE) ACS patients managed medically without revascularization...

BACKGROUND: The CRUSADE, ACTION and ACUITY-HORIZONS scores are commonly used for predicting in-hospital major bleeding events in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), but the homogeneous nature of these models' population limits simple extrapolation to other local population. We aimed to compare the performance of the three risk models in Chinese patients. METHODS: We evaluated the performance of the three predicting scores for predicting in-hospital major bleeding events defined by thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) serious (major and minor) episodes, in a cohort of Chinese ACS patients with either non-ST-elevation ACS (NSTE-ACS) or ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)...
