The order consists of three different types of FRISC
design, comprising a boarding craft, a raiding craft and a support craft.
This was evident in the FRISC
II trial, which showed a "quite impressive" benefit for the early invasive strategy in men, whereas women--whether they underwent coronary intervention or not--had a prognosis similar to that of men in the early invasive group, noted Dr.
Some of the randomized trials that have proved benefit from this invasive strategy include: TIMI IIIB, FRISC
II, RITA 3, and the TACTICS-TIMI 18 (4).
Interestingly, randomization to an early invasive vs conservative strategy had no effect on NT-proBNP changes during the first 6 weeks after NSTEACS in FRISC
II (Framingham and Fast Revascularization During Instability in Coronary Artery Disease II) (4).
In a substudy of the FRISC
II investigation assessing the potential mechanism for the prognostic capability of troponin, Lindaht et al found that patients with markedly elevated troponin had presented more severe initial electrocardiographic alterations and showed a higher incidence of visible thrombus and complete occlusion of the circumflex artery on coronary angiography14.
TIMI 18 and FRISC
II provided compelling support for early cardiac catheterization of high-risk patients and revascularization based upon anatomic findings.
