Patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) require dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). Preliminary assessment of the PRECISE-DAPT score is mandatory in order to assess the risk of bleeding while on DAPT. The score takes into consideration age, creatinine clearance, haemoglobin, white blood- cell count and previous spontaneous bleeding. One should consider, however, that some of the variables included in the PRECISE-DAPT score might change with time. As a consequence, the PRECISE-DAPT score should not be considered a static score as it might vary after the initial computation.
It remains unknown, however, if the use of the delta PRECISE-SCORE, which reflects the change in score between baseline and follow-up, might help to improve the management of PCI patients in order to decrease the bleeding risk during follow-up.
The RE-SCORE trial is a multicenter study aimed at comparing usual care of patients treated with PCI with a novel strategy of change of therapy during follow-up on the base of the Delta PRECISE-DAPT score, as assessed every 3 months in PCI patients receiving DAPT. The primary end-point of the study is the occurrence of bleeding, as defined according to the criteria of the Bleeding Academic Research Consortium (BARC). The second end-point is a composite of cardiac death, myocardial infarction, stroke, definite or probable stent thrombosis (ST), or BARC criteria type 2, 3 or 5 bleeding.

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.

Diseases of long duration and generally slow progression. The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (e.g., heart attacks and stroke), CANCER, chronic respiratory diseases (e.g., CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and ASTHMA) and DIABETES MELLITUS.
An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.
