Background: Recent studies have shown fondaparinux's superiority over enoxaparin in patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome (ACS), especially in relation to bleeding reduction. The description of this finding in a Brazilian registry has not yet been documented. Objective: To compare fondaparinux versus enoxaparin in in-hospital prognosis of non-ST elevation ACS. Methods: Multicenter retrospective observational study. A total of 2,282 patients were included (335 in the fondaparinux group, and 1,947 in the enoxaparin group) between May 2010 and May 2015...

The incidence of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) is high in the elderly. Despite a high prevalence of frailty and other aging-related variables, little information exists about the optimal clinical management in patients with coexisting geriatric syndromes. The aim of the LONGEVO-SCA registry (Impacto de la Fragilidad y Otros Síndromes Geriátricos en el Manejo y Pronóstico Vital del Anciano con Síndrome Coronario Agudo sin Elevación de Segmento ST) is to assess the impact of aging-related variables on clinical management, prognosis, and functional status in elderly patients with ACS...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the impact of a conservative strategy in non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction in patients in the Portuguese Registry of Acute Coronary Syndromes. METHODS: The 3780 patients included in the study over a three-year period were divided into three groups: group 1, patients treated by a conservative strategy during hospitalization; group 2, patients who underwent coronary angiography without percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI); and group 3, patients who underwent PCI...

Tirofiban is a nonpeptide tyrosine derivative that together with eptifibatide (both small molecules) and abciximam belongs to the group of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors. Though similar to abciximab in that it has a high affinity for the GP IIbIIIa inhibitor receptor, tirofiban dissociates from it much faster tan abciximab, what makes its action reversible in a few hours. Initially used upstream for treatment of patients with non ST-elevation acute coronary síndromes, recent evidence has shown its role as adjuntive therapy in patients with ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction treated with primary angioplasty when used at a higher dose...

BACKGROUND: The Portuguese Registry of Acute Coronary Syndromes was established in 2002, with the goal of gathering data on the clinical characteristics, treatment and prognosis of Portuguese patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). OBJECTIVE: To report the information collected during the seven years of activity of the Portuguese Registry of ACS (from January 1, 2002 to December 31, 2008). METHODS: The Portuguese Registry of ACS is an observational, prospective and continuous registry, which started on January 1, 2002 and involved 45 Portuguese hospitals...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: To investigate the clinical characteristics and treatment of acute coronary syndromes (ACS), and to determine the effects of an early invasive strategy (EIS) in non-ST-elevation ACS (NSTEACS) and of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in ST-elevation ACS (STEACS). METHODS: Data were collected prospectively for 9 months during 2004-2005 from 50 hospitals, which were randomly selected according to the level of care provided...

OBJECTIVE: To analyse intensity of treatment of high-risk patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTEACS) included in the DESCARTES (Descripción del Estado de los Sindromes Coronarios Agudos en un Registro Temporal Español) registry. PATIENTS AND SETTING: Patients with NSTEACS (n = 1877) admitted to 45 randomly selected Spanish hospitals in April and May 2002 were studied. DESIGN: Patients with ST segment depression and troponin rise were considered high risk (n = 478) and were compared with non-high risk patients (n = 1399)...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: There is little information regarding the management of non-ST segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE ACS) in Spain from a population-based perspective. Our objective was to study the status of clinical care in patients with NSTE ACS in Spain from a representative perspective of the situation on a national level. PATIENTS AND METHOD: A prospective registry was used for consecutive patients with NSTE ACS admitted to 52 Spanish hospitals with different cardiological facilities...
