- •Invasive strategy did not improve long-term outcome in non-STEMI with comorbidities.
- •A tendency towards a better outcome in the short-term was observed.
- •Comorbidities should not dissuade the invasive management in non-STEMI.
- •The fact that mid and long term outcomes remained unmodified must be kept in mind.
