Savonitto et al identified short term prognosis for patients with acute coronary syndromes based on the admission electrocardiogram and serum creatine kinase concentration. This can help identify patients at risk for death or reinfarction. Elevation of the serum creatine kinase (CK) concentration on admission is associated with a worse prognosis. The authors are from 10 hospitals in Europe and the United States, with the lead author from Ospedale Niguarda Ca Granda in Milan.
