Long-term survival prospects of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention: Envisioning the future

Academic Article


  • Implicit and largely intuitive survival predictions guide current clinical decision making after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A model based on nine simple factors known after diagnostic catheterization but prior to PCI provides accurate prediction of five-year survival probability after PCI. Future prediction models and methods incorporating age and gender adjusted risk of death, cause of death (competing risks), and low prevalence but impactful comorbidities automatically implemented in electronic health records have the potential to further inform clinical decision-making and target therapies.
