Objective A high SYNTAX score (SXscore) is a predictor of adverse outcomes for stable and unstable coronary syndromes. We aimed to examine whether a high SXscore will determine in-hospital clinical outcomes in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention.
