Introduction: Acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) is an emergency clinical syndrome defined as a sudden worsening of heart failure.
PREdicting bleeding Complications In patients undergoing Stent implantation and subsEquent DualAnti‑Platelet Therapy (PRECISE‑DAPT)
score is a new scoring used in the management of duration of dual‐antiplatelet therapy after coronary intervention.We presented the hypothesisthat
this scoring can be used as a predictor of mortality in heart failure. Objective:In thisstudy, the correlation between mortality and PRECISE‑DAPT
score will be analyzed in patients diagnosed withADHF. Materials and Methods: A total of 114 patients hospitalized with a diagnosis ofADHF
were included in this study. The patients were divided into two groups: PRECISE‑DAPT score ≥25 and PRECISE‑DAPT score <25, and these
groups were evaluated in terms of correlation with early (<6 months), late (>6 months) and overall mortality. Results: According to univariate
analysis, it was found that PRECISE‑DAPT score was significantly related with early (P < 0.001), late (P < 0.001), and overall (P < 0.001)
mortality. Multivariate Cox regression analysis showed that PRECISE‑DAPT was independently associated with late (hazard ratio: 6.6; 95%
confidence interval [CI] 1.6–27.3; P = 0.009) and overall (hazard ratio: 11.3; 95% CI 3.2–40.9; P < 0.001) mortality. According to Kaplan–
Meier curve, those with a score of ≥25 were shown to have significantly higher mortality. The predictive ability for the PRECISE‑DAPT score
threshold value of 25 was investigated in 3 mortality subgroups. Conclusion: The PRECISE‑DAPT score may be a significant independent
predictor of mortality in patients with ADHF. Limitations: This study is subject to the limitations inherent to a retrospective study and the
sample size in our study is relatively small.
