Optimal treatment of patients with NSTE-ACS in the Dutch health care system

Netherlands Heart Journal > Uitgave 6/2018
J. P. van Kuijk, J. M. ten Berg


In the current daily practice of acute coronary syndromes, patients experiencing non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) represent the majority of this population. In these patients it is of utmost importance to estimate both ischaemic and bleeding risk, with subsequent, and preferably tailored pharmacological and, if indicated, invasive treatment. In this paper we describe the several risk scores and evaluate which are most applicable to the Dutch health-care system. Furthermore, we provide an overview of the recommended pharmacological treatment in keeping with the European Society of Cardiology guidelines. An important topic of this paper is how to decide between early or delayed invasive strategies. We describe the recommendations of the European Society of Cardiology and evaluate to which level these should be applied to the Dutch health-care system.
