Anticoagulant therapy for non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome in China: A multi-center observational study

the treatment of NSTE-ACS is anticoagulants. The common anticoagulants are unfractionated heparin (UFH) and low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH), whose clinical efficacy has been proved by many clinical trials. A new anticoagulant, fondaparinux, with satisfactory efficacy and safety, may play a crucial role in the treatment of ACS. [ 3 ] Based on the clinical data of 1,502 NSTE-ACS patients, the study aims to assess the anticoagulant therapy for NSTE-ACS in China, explore the severity of its two subtypes, reveal the problems in the treatment of NSTE-ACS, and offer
