Background: In patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS), identification of the patients with high-risk coronary anatomy (HRCA) who are most likely to require coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is crucial. The SYNTAX score (SXscore) is an angiographic grading tool designed to determine the complexity of coronary artery disease. It appears that CABG offers significantly better outcomes in patients with SXscore >= 33, which shows severe HRCA.
