  • Risk stratification is an essential part of appropriately informing patients electing to undergo percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). This process is also an integral part of the SYNTAX (Synergy between PCI with Taxus and Cardiac Surgery)-pioneered heart team approach in determining the most appropriate revascularisation modality for patients with complex coronary artery disease. The SYNTAX score was pioneered as an anatomical-based risk score to aid in this decision-making process; the… CONTINUE READING
