This section summarises the diagnostic and therapeutic steps discussed in the previous sections. The goal is to outline the most important steps in the management of patients with NSTE-ACS. In each individual patient, decision making should take into account the patient's history (e.g. age, comorbidities), clinical presentation (e.g. ongoing myocardial ischaemia, haemodynamic or electrical instability), findings obtained during the initial assessment (i.e. ECG, cardiac troponin), timing and expected risk-benefit ratio of available therapies (i.e. pharmacological, invasive assessment, revascularization).
