1% C-Reactive Protein Instability of coronary plaques is associated with macrophage accumulation (9), inflammation, and an increase in acute phase proteins such as high-sensitivity CRP and serum amyloid A (10). High concentration of both baseline (11–16) and discharge (17) high-sensitivity CRP are independent predictors of subsequent events (11,12,18). CRP and cardiac troponin have been shown to be independent and additive in the prediction of cardiac death (13,19). Although high-sensitivity commercial assays required to detect minimal increases of CRP have only recently been released, the concentrations of CRP Management of Acute Coronary Syndromes 19 Fig.

The FRISC II study (77) examined an early invasive strategy in 2457 patients with unstable angina who had ECG changes or positive serum markers. 03) at 6 mo, compared with a conservative strategy in which revascularization was driven by recurrent or ongoing ischemia. The event curves continued to diverge at 6 mo after randomization. 10).
