Objectives: We aimed to assess the prognostic values of the EuroSCORE, SYNTAX score, and the novel Clinical SYNTAX score (CSS) for 30-day and 1-year outcomes in patients undergoing left main (LM) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Background: PCI has become an alternative treatment for LM coronary artery disease, and risk scoring system might be beneficial for pre-PCI risk stratification. Methods and Results: We enrolled 198 consecutive patients with unprotected LM disease undergoing PCI (mean age 71.5 ± 10.7 years). The CSS was calculated by multiplying the SYNTAX Score to (age/left ventricular ejection fraction +1 for each 10 mL the estimated glomerular filtration rate <60 mL/min per 1.73 m(2) ). The endpoints were 30-day, and 1-year all-cause death and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), which were defined as all-cause death, nonfatal MI, and clinical-driven target vessel revascularization. Comparing with the SYNTAX score, the predictive accuracy of CSS for 30-day and 1-year all-cause death and MACE were significantly higher (c-statistics, CSS versus SYNTAX score: P < 0.01 for 30-day and 1-year all-cause death; P < 0.05 for 30-day and 1-year MACE, respectively). Furthermore, in the multivariate Cox regression analysis, both EuroSCORE and CSS were identified as the independent predictors of 30-day and 1-year all-cause death and MACE, but the SYNTAX score was not. Conclusions: In the general practice among a high-risk population undergoing LM PCI, EuroSCORE and CSS might be independent predictors for 30-day and 1-year all-cause death and MACE. Furthermore, the CSS had a superior discriminatory ability in predicting the 30-day and 1-year clinical outcomes comparing with the SYNTAX score. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
