Background: The Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) risk score is said to be an important factor in predicting mortality risk in fibrinolysis-eligible STEMI patients. An attempt was made to assess the situation by comparing risk stratification based on the TIMI score with the hospital outcome of such individuals.
Methods: 145 STEMI patients were included in this srudy , TIMI risk scores were calculated and analysed vis-Ã -vis various relevant parameters.. Based on their TIMI scores, the patients were placed into three risk groups: low-risk,moderate-risk, and high-risk. All patients received standard anti-ischemic medication, were thrombolyzed, monitored in the ICCU, and monitored throughout their hospital stay for post-MI sequelae.
Results: According to the TIMI risk score, 79 patients (54.5%) had low-risk , 48 (33.1%) to the moderate-risk , and 18 (12.4%) to the high-risk . The highest mortality rate (total 17 deaths) was found in the high-risk group (55.6%), followed by moderate-risk (12.2%) and low-risk (1.28%) groups, respectively. Killips categorization grade 2-4 had the highest relative risk (RR-15.85) of the seven potentially dubious variables evaluated, followed by systolic BP 100mmHg (RR-10.48), diabetes mellitus (RR-2.79), and age >65 years (RR- 2.59).
Conclusions: In patients with STEMI, the TIMI risk scoring system appears to be a straightforward, valid, and practical bedside tool for quantitative risk classification and short-term prognosis prediction.
