RITA 3: Benefit of early invasive strategy in moderate-risk unstable angina patients
Final results of RITA 3 (Randomized Intervention Trial of unstable Angina) confirm that an interventional strategy results in a statistically significant reduction in the combined outcome of death, nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI), or refractory angina.
These trial results provide valuable data on the benefits of an interventional strategy for patients at moderate risk of death from unstable coronary artery disease (CAD). The recent AHA/ACC unstable angina guidelines recommend an invasive strategy for patients at high risk, but specify either an invasive strategy or a conservative strategy for moderate-risk patients.
