Prognostic significance of bleeding location and severity among patients with acute coronary syndromes
Acute Coronary Syndrome
Coronary Artery Bypass
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
Platelet Aggregation Inhibitors
Among ACS patients who develop in-hospital bleeding, systemic and surgical bleeding are associated with the highest risks of adverse outcomes regardless of bleeding severity. Although the most frequent among bleeds, GUSTO mild/moderate access-site bleeding is not associated with increased risk. These data underscore the importance of strategies to minimize overall bleeding risk beyond vascular access site management.
