Managing NSTE-ACS in critical care in special populations, a selection of all resources you need in the field by experts.
Key steps in the hospital management strategy of patients with NSTE-ACS are optimal antithrombotic therapy and coronary angiography often with subsequent revascularization by PCI or CABG. Some patients need particular attention:
Women may present late and are often older with more comorbidity. Spontaneous coronary artery dissection and Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy are more frequent in women.
Diabetes is associated with more diffuse coronary artery disease. If 3-VD is present CABG should be considered.
CKD patients might need dose reduction of some antithrombotics and can frequently be treated with well-planned PCI – take care of the contrast load.
Elderly patients should usually undergo coronary angiography and be treated with antithrombotics. PCI is often the preferred revascularization strategy.
