The authors reflect on GRACE (Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events) scoring system in predicting later outcome and in-hospital patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). They suggest that clinicians must be aware of the various models of GRACE score so that numerical score will vary depending on the result of patients after being discharged from the hospital. Also mentioned is the report by C. Meune and colleagues regarding their experience of utilizing GRACE score model.
