Unstable coronary artery disease continues to pose a major challenge to clinicians. The advent of new therapies, such as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, low-molecular-weight heparins, and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors, provides new management options for this indication but also raises new questions with regard to optimal management. Prospective randomized trials with well-defined, long-term outcome measures and a means of identifying which patients will derive most benefit from each treatment, together with a means of rapid and clear dissemination of study results and implications, are required in order to advance the management of unstable coronary artery disease.
