Should we improve the management of NSTEMI? Results from the population-based acute myocardial infarction in Florence 2 (AMI-Florence 2) registry
Internal and Emergency Medicine, 08/01/2012
Balzi D et al. – PCI reduced the risk of 1–year mortality similarly in STEMI (HR 0.47, 95 % CI 0.28–0.79) and NSTEMI (HR 0.41, 95 % CI 0.28–0.60). PCI reduces mortality in both STEMI and NSTEMI, but it is underutilised in patients with NSTEMI. To improve overall prognosis of AMI, efforts should be made at improving the care of NSTEMI patients.
