Appropriate Use Ratings for Revascularization in Acute Coronary Syndromes*
*The fact that the use of coronary revascularization for a particular condition is listed in this figure (appropriate, uncertain, inappropriate) does not preclude the use of other therapeutic modalities that may be equally effective. See the most current ACCF/AHA UA/NSTEMI and STEMI guidelines (16,23). A = appropriate; CAD = coronary artery disease; HF = heart failure; I = inappropriate; LVEF = left ventricular ejection fraction; PCI = percutaneous coronary intervention; STEMI = ST-elevation myocardial infarction; U = uncertain; UA/NSTEMI = unstable angina/non–ST-elevation myocardial infarction.
