Summary of "Value of syntax score II for predicting in-hospital and long-term survival in octogenarians with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: A comparison of six different risk scores."

The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of the Syntax Score II (SSII) in predicting in-hospital and long-term mortality in octogenarians who presented with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and were treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) in addition to compare SS II with other risk-scoring systems.

Decreased heart rate recovery may predict a high SYNTAX score in patients with stable coronary artery disease.

An impaired heart rate recovery (HRR) has been associated with increased risk of cardiovascular events, cardiovascular, and all-cause mortality. However, the diagnostic ability of HRR for the presence...

Use of the SYNTAX Score II to predict mortality in interventional cardiology: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

As the SYNTAX Score has limitations, it should be replaced by another better angiographic tool. By comparing mortality that was observed following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients ...

Predicting Long-Term Cardiovascular Events after Transient Ischemic Attacks: Carotid Artery Intima-Media Thickness or ABCD2 Score or Both?

Patients who experienced transient ischemic attack (TIA) are at high-risk for cardiovascular events. This study aims to evaluate diagnostic value of carotid artery intima-media thickness (CIMT) and AB...

One-year mortality of patients admitted to the intensive care unit after in-hospital cardiac arrest: a retrospective study.

Little is known about long-term survival after In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (IHCA). The purpose of this study is to report the one-year survival of patients after IHCA and to identify predicting factors...

The value of syntax score to predict new-onset atrial fibrillation in patients with acute coronary syndrome.

New-onset atrial fibrillation (NOAF) has been associated with poor outcome in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Also, Syntax score (SS) is a scoring system that is derived from angiographi...

Impact of Residual Syntax Score and Syntax Revascularization Index on Outcomes of ACS Patients With Multi-Vessel Disease

We want to assess the use of the residual SYNTAX score and the SYNTAX Revascularization Index as predictors for in-hospital outcomes and mid-term (6 months to 1 year) outcomes in patients ...

Age-Dependent Impact of the SYNTAX-score on Mortality

The SYNTAX-score has been proposed as a tool for risk stratification and guiding revascularization therapy in patients with complex coronary artery disease. There are limited data on the ...

Persons who have experienced prolonged survival of HIV infection. This includes the full spectrum of untreated, HIV-infected long-term asymptomatics to those with AIDS who have survived due to successful treatment.

Hospital equipment and supplies, packaged for long-term storage, sufficient to set up a general hospital in an emergency situation. They are also called Packaged Disaster Hospitals and formerly Civil Defense Emergency Hospitals.

Health insurance to provide full or partial coverage for long-term home care services or for long-term nursing care provided in a residential facility such as a nursing home.

A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.

A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.
