Evaluation of the NICE Mini-GRACE Risk Scores for Acute Myocardial Infarction Using the Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP) 2003-2009: National Institute for Cardiovascular Outcomes Research (NICOR)

Study Questions:

What is the performance of two variants of the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk score—the mini-Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (MG) and adjusted mini-GRACE (AMG) risk scores—in predicting 6-month mortality following acute myocardial infarction (AMI)? These revised risk scores may better reflect the data collected by national British registries such as the Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP).
