To evaluate a patient with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) using the risk score of Amin et al.

Specialty:

risk factors, severity, prognosis, stage

ICD-10:

I21, I22

Description:

Amin et al modified the TIMI risk score of Morrow et al for risk assessment at presentation for a patient with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The dynamic risk score provided better risk discrimination than the original risk score by identifying complications.
