International guidelines suggest revascularization within 24 hours in non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Within a large population cohort study, we aimed to explore clinical practice regarding timing targets for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in NSTEMI. The Victorian Cardiac Outcomes Registry was established in 2013 as a state-wide clinical quality registry, pooling data from public and private PCI capable centers. Data were collected on 11,852 PCIs performed for NSTEMI from 2014 to 2018. Patients were divided into 3 groups by time of symptom onset to PCI (72 hours). We performed multivariable logistic regression analysis conditional on several baseline covari..
