Simple image translates into prognosis.

The prognostic value of aortic arch calcification had not been defined previously in regard to acute coronary syndrome. The present study observed a significant difference in survival between acute coronary syndrome patients with different degrees of aortic arch calcification.

La Calcificación del Arco Aórtico es un Mal Signo en el Síndrome Coronario Agudo

En el síndrome coronario agudo, el valor pronóstico de la calcificación del arco aórtico no ha sido definido. En el presente estudio se observó una diferencia significativa en la supervivencia entre los pacientes con síndrome coronario agudo y distintos grados de calcificación del arco aórtico.
