Unprotected Left Main Disease and Percutaneous Intervention: A Prototype for Precision Medicine

Academic Article

Abstract

  • © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. The SYNTAX Score based on angiographic findings is an actionable risk prediction model helping guide treatment for significant unprotected left main disease. Adding the clinical factor based EuroSCORE to SYNTAX improves outcome prediction for percutaneous coronary intervention of unprotected left main disease. Prediction models are an increasingly useful tool permitting cardiologists to optimize patient outcomes through “personalized” or precision medicine.
