MACCE = major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular event; VF = ventricular fibrillation; VT = ventricular tachycardia; other abbreviations as in Table 1.
↵⁎ One patient with a Parsonnet score of 41 had severe peripheral vascular disease and left ventricular dysfunction and was turned down by the surgeon for CABG. The patient underwent PCI with a percutaneous left ventricular assist device for hemodynamic support. The patient underwent peripheral vascular surgery 2 days after PCI and died suddenly 10 days after PCI.
↵† Only post-hospitalization and/or clinical myocardial infarction as cardiac enzymes were not drawn serially after revascularization
