BRILINTA is indicated to reduce the rate of thrombotic CV events in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS: unstable angina [UA], non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
[NSTEMI], or ST-elevation myocardial infarction [STEMI]).
Under the revised guidelines, BRILIQUE is listed as an antiplatelet treatment option during myocardial revascularisation for ACS patients presenting with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) or non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
Cardiac troponins play a key role in differentiating patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
from the large proportion of patients with acute chest pain (36); however, multiple other biomarkers have been evaluated for their diagnostic capability (7-10).
ACC/AHA clinical performance measures for adults with ST-elevation and non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
: a report of the ACC/AHA Task Force on Performance Measures (Writing Committee to Develop Performance Measures on ST-Elevation and Non-ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction
) Circulation 2006; 113: 732-61.
Patients with elevated serum levels of creatine kinase myocardial band or troponin I or troponin T, but no ST-segment elevation, are said to have non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
In these cases, cardiac troponins play a central role because they allow distinction between non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
and unstable angina, thus providing both diagnostic and prognostic information (2, 3).
Lowering mortality in ST-elevation myocardial infarction and non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
: key prehospital and emergency room treatment strategies.
Interventional versus conservative treatment for patients with unstable angina or non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction

Ability of minor elevations of troponins I and T to predict benefit from an early invasive strategy in patients with unstable angina and non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction

reported that when anger was the trigger the patients were more likely to present with ST-elevation myocardial infarction rather than non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
or unstable angina (3).
