BACKGROUND Expanding the knowledge of pathogenesis of arteriosclerosis points at a central role of platelets in the development of acute coronary syndromes. Therefore, we sought to determine the impact of platelet count on long-term outcome in unstable angina/non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (UA/NSTEMI) receiving contemporary treatment. METHODS This prospective cohort study included 1616 consecutive patients with UA/NSTEMI. All patients underwent coronary angiography and, if… CONTINUE READING
