PENA DUQUE, Marco Antonio. Acute coronary ischemc syndrome without st elevation: Role of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors and percutaneous coronary interventions. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2006, vol.76, suppl.2, pp. 249-251. ISSN 1405-9940.
Myocardial infarction without ST elevation and unstable angina, represents a diagnostic challenge. This Syndromes are caused by rupture of a vulnerable plaque which determines intraluminal thrombosis, distal embolism and coronary obstruction. Administration of IIb/IIIa inhibitors produces some benefits, mainly in those patients who are taking to catheterization. Coronary intervention based on a routine invasive strategy, has decreased major cardiac events principally at long term.
