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.

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...
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 ...
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...
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...
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...
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 ...
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 ...
An investigator-driven, retrospective study to compare long-term survival-data (10-year follow-up) of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), previously enrolled in the SYNTAX trial, ...
Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) were enrolled. CAD was diagnosed by coronary angiography which also resulted Syntax score. Images of left and right ears were captured by a digi...
In recent years, several scoring systems have been developed aimed at predicting early post-LT graft function. However, many of them showed poor efficacy when long-term survivals were test...
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.
