GUAMAN, Carlos; LOZA, Gimena  and  ALBISTUR, Juan. News from the European Society of Cardiology 2020 Guidelines on the Management of Acute Coronary Syndrome without Persistent ST-Segment Elevation. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2021, vol.36, n.2, e4002.  Epub Aug 01, 2021. ISSN 0797-0048.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. The management of coronary syndromes has advanced dramatically in the last 50 years, reducing ischemic risk, but observing an increase in bleeding risk. The European Society of Cardiology published in 2020 the guideline on the management of acute coronary syndrome without ST-segment elevation, where changes in risk stratification algorithms and antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapy are highlighted as two of the main aspects. This editorial summarizes the main developments published in this document.

Keywords : Acute coronary syndrome; Myocardial infarction; Anti-platelet aggregation; Percutaneous coronary intervention.
