OBJECTIVES This study aimed to validate the SYNTAX (Synergy between PCI with Taxus and Cardiac Surgery) score representing angiographic complexity after unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) revascularization. BACKGROUND The validity of the SYNTAX score has been adequately evaluated. METHODS The SYNTAX scores were calculated for 1,580 patients in a large multicenter registry who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) (n = 819) or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) (n… CONTINUE READING
