The article focuses on the importance of the SYNTAX Score II, which determines the alternative treatment for patients with complex coronary disease (CAD). It informs that the score II includes clinical variables including peripheral vascular disease, creatinine clearance and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It further mentions that score II can predict long-term mortality in a better way as compared to the SYNTAX Score.
