Abstract

Clinical evidence in the management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) continues to evolve at a rapid pace. For clinicians to provide optimal care for these patients, it is important to keep up with new information as it becomes available. With the existence of numerous pharmacologic agents, abundance of major clinical trials, and several nationally recognized clinical guidelines, compiling the needed reference material to make evidence-based decisions on the care of patients with ACS or those undergoing PCI can be difficult for clinicians. Therefore, we provide an update to the first compiled bibliography of key articles and guidelines relative to patients with ACS published in Pharmacotherapy in 2004. A number of guidelines and practice-changing literature have been published since the initial 2004 document. We hope that this compilation will serve as a resource for pharmacists, physicians, nurses, residents, and students responsible for the care of patients with coronary heart disease.
