OBJECTIVES This study sought to develop a practical risk score to predict the risk of stent thrombosis (ST) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute coronary syndromes (ACS). BACKGROUND ST is a rare, yet feared complication after PCI with stent implantation. A risk score for ST after PCI in ACS can be a helpful tool to personalize risk assessment. METHODS This study represents a patient-level pooled analysis of 6,139 patients undergoing PCI with stent implantation for ACS in… CONTINUE READING
