BACKGROUND The optimal timing of coronary intervention in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACSs) is a matter of debate. Conflicting results among published studies partly relate to different risk profiles of the studied populations. PURPOSE To do the most comprehensive meta-analysis of current evidence on early versus delayed invasive treatment in NSTE-ACS. DATA SOURCES MEDLINE, PubMed Central, and Google Scholar databases; conference proceedings… CONTINUE READING
