What is a high STS score?

The STS score is a validated risk-prediction model for open surgery based on data from the STS National Adult Cardiac Surgery Database. In general, an STS predicted risk of surgical mortality of 4%-8% is considered intermediate risk and 8% or greater is considered high risk.

How do you interpret STS scores?

How is EuroSCORE calculated?

The EuroSCORE II was developed based on a more current patient database and appears to reduce the overestimation of the calculated risk….This is assessed using the Cockcroft–Gault formula and falls into three categories:

  1. >85 ml/min.
  2. 51–85 ml/min.
  3. CC ≤ 50 ml/min.
  4. on dialysis (regardless of serum creatinine)

What does EuroSCORE measure?

EuroSCORE (European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation) is a risk model which allows the calculation of the risk of death after a heart operation.

What is a low EuroSCORE?

13. The EuroSCORE description has three risk groups, based on the score obtained: low-risk patients (≤ 2 points) with a predicted mortality below 1%, patients at moderate risk (mortality around 3%), and a high-risk group (predicted mortality of 10–11%).

Is the STS-prom score superior to other risk calculation models for Tavi?

These data show the superiority of the STS-PROM and STS/ACC TAVR scores compared with other existing risk calculation models in predicting 30-day mortality after TAVI in a German all-comers population. The STS/ACC TAVR score, however, is easier to calculate (12 vs. 28 variables), and may thus gain w …

What is the STS/ACC TAVR in-hospital mortality risk app?

The STS/ACC TAVR In-Hospital Mortality Risk App assists with determining the predicted in-hospital mortality risk. Once determined, a patient’s mortality risk can then be compared to the national average based on STS/ACC TVT Registry™ data.

What is the STS short-term risk calculator?

The STS Short-Term Risk Calculator allows you to calculate a patient’s risk of mortality and morbidities for the most commonly performed cardiac surgeries. It incorporates STS risk models that are designed to serve as statistical tools to account for the impact of patient risk factors on operative mortality and morbidity.

How do I use the STS clinical practice guidelines app?

Take advantage of clinical decision-making aids at your fingertips—even when you’re on the go—with the STS Clinical Practice Guidelines App, available for iPhone and iPad. Use the app to browse individual clinical practice guidelines or search by keyword.
