Objective: to broaden the data supporting the use of the residual SYNTAX score (rSS) to define 'reasonable' ICR in order to improve the allocation of patients with severe CAD to surgical/percutaneous revascularization and long-term clinical outcomes. Introduction: Incomplete coronary revascularization (ICR) is associated with a worse prognosis in patients with severe coronary artery disease (CAD), yet no consensus exists regarding its definition. Methods: We studied 148 consecutive patients with triple vessel/left main (3VD/LM) coronary artery disease treated by percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). Clinical outcomes at 3 years were collected, the SS and rSS were calculated. We used various definitions of 'reasonable' ICR:no post-PCI total occlusion, single vs. mutivessel residual post-PCI disease and the rSS at a cutoff value determined according to ROC curve fitted for 3 years major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular adverse events(MACCE) in order to determine which definition has the strongest correlation with long-term outcomes. Results: rSS ≤ 8 was associated with significant reductions in 3 year MACCE (19.4 vs. 51.1%, HR=3.62, P=0.014) Death/MI/CVA (13.7 vs. 28.8%, HR=6.01, p=0.030) and repeat revascularization (8.6 vs. 28.9%, HR=3.44, p=0.033) using a Cox proportional hazard ratio model adjusted to baseline characteristics, whereas single vessel residual disease and absence of total occlusion were not. Conclusions: 'reasonable' ICR as determined by rSS carries better long-term prognosis in terms of clinical outcomes vs. more extensive residual coronary disease in patients with 3VD/LM coronary artery disease treated by PCI. The rSS may improve the allocation of coronary patients to the optimal mode of revascularization. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
