Abstract

We assessed whether timing of catheterization is associated with the type of non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome and/or outcome in patients who were enrolled in the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events. Overall, 8,853 patients who had unstable angina pectoris or non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction were categorized according to timing of catheterization: expeditive (48 hours). Patients in the delayed group were older, more frequently had previous myocardial infarction or stroke, and had a higher risk score compared with those in the expeditive and early groups (all p
