The article focuses on a study which examines the role of Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction risk index (TRI) in predicting in-hospital mortality in patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). The National Registry of Myocardial Infarction database was analyzed for the study. It was found that TRI had good discriminative capacity to foretell in-hospital mortality in patients with NSTEMI.
