ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a study conducted to develop a risk adjustment model for major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), based on data from Portuguese national registry. After a retrospective analysis of data from 10641 Portuguese patients who underwent PCI, it was found that major adverse event was a composite variable that included death, acute myocardial infarction, need for a new revascularization by urgent coronary artery bypass graft, and stroke.
