BACKGROUND A routine invasive strategy is recommended for patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS). However, optimal timing of invasive strategy is less clearly defined. Individual clinical trials were underpowered to detect a mortality benefit; we therefore did a meta-analysis to assess the effect of timing on mortality. METHODS We identified randomised controlled trials comparing an early versus a delayed invasive strategy in patients presenting with NSTE-ACS by… Expand
