Prediction of one-year survival in high-risk patients with acute coronary syndromes: Results from the SYNERGY trial
Acute Coronary Syndrome
Cause of Death
Easily determined baseline clinical characteristics can be used to predict 1-year mortality with reasonable discriminative power. These models corroborate prior work in a contemporary aggressively managed population. A model to predict 1-year mortality in patients surviving at least 30 days may be quite helpful to healthcare providers in setting expectations and goals with patients after ACS.
