coronary disease, myocardial infarction, without ST-segment elevation
DISEASE INTERVENTION COMPARISON RESULTS
Lancet. 2005 Sep 10;366(9489):914-20 Randomized Controlled Trial, Multicenter Study
IN coronary disease, myocardial infarction, without ST-segment elevation The Use of
routine invasive strategy (angiography and revascularization)
As Treatment, Acute
Is better Than
conservative strategy (ischaemia- or symptom-driven angiography)
To reduce at 5 years: death or non-fatal myocardial infarction (16.6% in invasive VS 20% in conservative strategy). A trend to reduce death but not significant.

IN coronary disease, myocardial infarction, without ST-segment elevation, unstable angina The Use of

As Treatment, Acute
