ABSTRACT
The article presents a commentary on the study, which concluded that a bedside prediction tool predicted all-cause mortality 6 months after discharge for the acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Accurate prognostic information in ACS is a key factor in adapting interventions to individual patient risk. The current classification of ACS is based mainly on quantifying the extent of myocardial injury. It identifies patient groups with different prognoses and intervention needs. However, it has been proposed that more comprehensive evaluation of long-term risk is needed.
