ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a clinical study according to which routine invasive management after unstable angina or non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) reduces risk for death or MI. The study explored whether in patients with unstable angina or NSTEMI, initial management with a routine invasive strategy is more effective than a selective invasive strategy. Randomized controlled trials that compared routine invasive and selective invasive strategies for early management of patients with unstable angina or NSTEMI.
