Abstract

The increasing life expectancy in older adults and the better survival of patients with multiple pathologies require the capability to treat complex clinical conditions with an increased risk of iatrogenic complications. Nevertheless, recent improvements in the pharmacological and interventional treatment of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) have promoted a shift from therapeutic nihilism to a more active management of complex ACS cases. Despite the paucity of specific randomized clinical trials, observational studies seem to show benefit of an early invasive treatment in these patients. This approach requires close cooperation of clinical intensivists, interventional cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons either in a specialized heart center or in a network of hospitals.
