Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to compare mortality and myocardial infarction in patients with multi-vessel disease using “Modified Global Risk Classification” (mGRC).

 

Methods: We divided 579 patients into low, intermediate risk with a high EuroSCORE (IE), intermediate risk with a high SYNTAX score (IS), and high Modified Global Risk groups. Patients were evaluated for death, myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular events, need for re intervention, and a primary endpoint, which denotes the occurrence of any one of the four events.

 

Results: Comparing the bypass surgery and percutaneous coronary intervention groups using mGRC showed significantly better prognostic results in the bypass surgery patients for the rate of the occurrence of the myocardial infarction for the IS group (p=0.047). In terms of the primary endpoint, the EuroSCORE, SYNTAX score, and Global Risk Classification (GRC) were found to be independent risk factors in logistic regression analysis. The ability of GRC to discriminate for the 1-year mortality was found to be better than that of the EuroSCORE and SYNTAX score.

 

Conclusion: With the evaluation of the EuroSCORE and SYNTAX score together, the modified GRC, which includes both anatomical and clinical risk factors, provides an additional benefit for predicting the prognosis and decision of treatment in patients with multi-vessel disease.
