Method Study Design This study comprised two designs 78: The primary outcome of total mortality was observed in patients i. Thus, STEMI patients with higher HF severity classes survived the initial stage possibly because the AMI-related artery was treated using an artery reperfusion strategy; moreover, they may have been at a lower risk of new events due to CAD, mostly unilateral, or at a younger age.

The numbers below were accurate in Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia. Results from an international kiillip of 41, patients. There were no objective clinical outcomes nor systematic collection of data or adjustments for confounding factors; moreover, there were no validations in kimbsll independent series of patients.

Developed in the s, before reperfusion therapy thrombolytics, PCI ; however, has been shown across several studies since then to still be predictive of mortality. From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper.

Furthermore, it is notable that the differences in survival distributions at day and long-term follow-up were statistically significant; this observation was similar for the two AMI groups. Prognostic importance of physical examination for heart failure in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes: Predictive value of the Killip classification in patients undergoing primary percutaneous kkillip intervention for acute myocardial infarction.


The criteria used for AMI diagnosis was based on the recommendations of the guidelines avaliable between and Sampling We used non-probability sampling considering the paucity of studies that have validated the Killip-Kimball classification to estimate the risk of mortality in patients with AMI in the Brazilian population.

Results Patient characteristics The main general characteristics of patients with AMI are described below as well as shown in Table 1according to the Killip class.

Cox model with initial data on hospital admission and predictors of mortality in the total follow-up of patients kkmball NSTEMI. Creating an account is free, easy, and takes about 60 seconds. The backward stepwise procedure enabled the identification of the independent variables for the risk of death, according to AMI type.

Other limitations, as in other observational studies, could include possible selection biases and not elucidating confounding factors, resulting in a non-ideal fit in the Cox proportional hazards models.

We defined total mortality as the clinical outcome of interest, with landmark analysis at day 30 and at the end of the follow-up period. In contrast, the prognostic value of this classification in non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction NSTEMI is not well established, primarily kumball it has not yet been validated in patients who were not selected from randomized clinical trial databases 4 and kimballl the paucity of data on late follow-up after AMI.

To save favorites, you must log in. The cases were stratified into the following classes: With ST-segment elevation MI. In fact, there klllip consistent risk stratification at day, 5-year, and total follow-up time post-AMI.

We emphasize that the proportionately smaller numbers of patients with poor prognosis in these classes did not allow the determination of whether the behavior is similar or different from a visual perspective only.

Data collection Information pertaining to the date of the last evaluation of each living patient, medication used 48 h before the admission and at discharge, kibmall on deaths during hospitalization or long-term clinical follow-up were collected by actively searching the patient’s electronic records, electronic data management systems of the institute, and medical records, as well as via telephone.
