The Syntax score, an index of coronary anatomic complexity and atherosclerotic burden, is already defined as a guidance for clinical decision making regarding the choice of the type of coronary revascularization. Some studies associates this marker with surrogate cardiovascular endpoints. Currently, a large clinical trial that already randomized over 16,000 patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction, is in its final follow-up phase. This GLOBAL LEADERS trial randomized STEMI patients to compare the standard dual antiplatelet therapy with ticagrelor monotherapy and only 30 days of ASA. The objective of the present study is to evaluate all 16,000 randomized patients regarding their angiographic findings of atherosclerotic burden and complexity assessed by the Syntax score, correlating it with the primary (all cause mortality) and secondary endpoints (myocardial infarction, stroke, target lesion revascularization, or definitive stent thrombosis). Also we intend to correlate these findings with the antiplatelet therapy scheme. Angiographic analysis will be performed at the Cardialysis core lab in Rotterdam - Netherlands. Our findings with this study will allow us to conclude if the assessment of the Syntax score predicts cardiovascular outcomes in a large cohort of patients, as well as better guide us on which antiplatelet therapy to prescribe in order to diminish cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
