  • A Heart Team Approach to Assessing Frailty in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory



    Frailty is a well-documented risk factor for increased morbidity and mortality among patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). There remains a lack of knowledge regarding the impact of patient frailty in cardiac patient management and outcomes. Thus, this study examined whether the Heart Team, without using frailty assessments, made decisions regarding coronary interventions [medical management (MM) vs. PCI vs. coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)] that aligned with formally quantified frailty status.
