In-hospital revascularization and one-year outcome of acute coronary syndrome patients stratified by the GRACE risk score.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Multicenter Study)

In the prospective, multicenter Canadian Acute Coronary Syndromes Registry, in-hospital revascularization was independently associated with better 1-year survival only among patients with high-risk non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes stratified by the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events risk score; similar benefits were not observed in the low- and intermediate-risk groups. The Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events risk score appears to be a useful risk stratification tool that identifies high-risk patients for whom more aggressive treatment is warranted.
