Abstract

In this large population-based registry of UK patients admitted to hospital with ACS without ST elevation, those aged over 70 are at substantially higher risk of adverse events than younger patients. However, they are less likely to receive treatments of proven benefit or to be investigated with a view to revascularisation. A more aggressive approach to these patients may be more appropriate and is likely to result in substantial benefits.
