Abstract

Risk stratification is often used to determine the need and priority for coronary angiography. We investigated the contemporary value of Framingham and SCORE risk models, individual risk factors, B-type natriuretic peptide and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) in the current era of intensive risk management.
