Abstract: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in Brazil and worldwide, and ischemic heart disease accounts for a large portion of this concerning scenario. 1 Among its forms of presentation, acute coronary syndrome (ACS) has a wide range of severity. 2 However, the use of validated mathematical models of clinical prediction is essential and recommended in national and international guidelines for the management of patients with ACS. 3,4 With this stratification, high-risk patients may receive more a… Show more

“…and wide confidence intervals, the consistency of good discrimination and calibration of this score in different populations reinforces this model as an appropriate tool to estimate the risk of patients with ACS. 2,3 Once a model has shown good performance in estimating risk, it is important to determine if this information may change the clinical practice. Patients with STEMI usually receive a standard level of care and changes in the approach are made more due to complications (e.g.…”
