OBJECTIVES We sought to compare the effects of an early interventional strategy (IS) versus a conservative strategy (CS) on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (ACS). BACKGROUND The third Randomized Intervention Trial of unstable Angina (RITA-3) evaluated early IS (n = 895) versus CS (n = 915). We report one-year results of the RITA-3 trial concerning HRQOL. METHODS The patients' HRQOL was assessed with the Short Form-36… CONTINUE READING
