Impact of renin-angiotensin system blockade on the prognosis of acute coronary syndrome based on left ventricular ejection fraction
ConclusionThe benefit of ACEI/ARB in decreasing mortality after an ACS in patients undergoing PCI is concentrated in patients with LVEF ≤ 40%, and in those with LVEF > 40% and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. In non–ST-segment elevation-ACS patients with LVEF > 40%, further studies are needed to assess the prognostic impact of ACEI/ARB.ResumenIntroducción y objetivosNo está clara la asociación entre los inhibidores de la enzima de conversión de la angiotensina (IECA) o los antagonistas del receptor de la angiotensina II (ARA-II) y la mortalidad de los paciente...

Publication date: Available online 9 May 2019Source: Revista Española de Cardiología (English Edition)Author(s): Vanesa Viana-Huete, José J.

Yet, even when treated optimally according to current standards, many individuals still experience life-threatening ischemic events. Emerging experimental and clinical evidence strongly suggests that persistent inflammation is a major driver of this residual risk, which has...
