The results are summarized in the following graphs:
Overall 2-year MACCE rate and MACCE components of the entire SYNTAX CABG study population (n = 1468), divided by incidence during the first and second year after allocation. MACCE, Major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular event; MI, myocardial infarction; CVA, cerebrovascular event; RR, repeat revascularization; GO, symptomatic graft occlusion. Safety end point was defined as combined end point of Death, MI and CVA.
MACCE in CABG patients increased not with high raw SYNTAX scores. Kaplan–Meier curves for 2-year MACCE in CABG divided by raw SYNTAX score. Patients with low (0–22; 15.6%), intermediate (23–32; 14.3%),and high (≥33; 15.4%) SYNTAX scores have similar 2-year MACCE rates. Numbers in the figure are cumulative event rates ± 1.5 standard error. MACCE, Major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular event.
