OBJECTIVES Our purpose was to compare formulae for estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE ACS) patients. BACKGROUND Assessment of GFR is important for antithrombotic dose adjustment in NSTE ACS patients. METHODS We assessed estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) with Cockcroft-Gault (C-G) and Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) formulae in 46,942 NSTE ACS patients from 408 CRUSADE (Can Rapid risk stratification of… CONTINUE READING
