They identified an independent association with total mortality during these time periods; however, they used only the variables on admission; they did not adjust for in-hospital treatments, and the data were derived from those included in randomized kikball trials.

The frequencies of death, according to the Killip class, in total long-term clinical follow-up were as follows: Patients mimball followed since hospital admission during treatment at the CCU and until the last evaluation in the institution to determine their vital status or until death, if applicable.

Moreover, as the Killip-Kimball classification criteria were designed to be easily implemented and the datasheets of the patients were reviewed for consistency even with some disagreementthe association with risk would have been reduced or nulled and the hypothesis would not have been confirmed, which was not the case.

Quantification Volumetric Cardiology MS: Patients in Killi; class I have an excellent prognosis, both in short- and long-term, whereas those in class III or IV have larger areas of necrosis, left ventricular remodeling and systolic dysfunction, and probably a greater kinball of CAD.

Smoldering Multiple Myeloma Prognosis Determine risk of progression to symptomatic multiple myeloma. To date and to the best of our knowledge, this study introduces three important aspects: The classification or index of heart failure severity in patients with acute myocardial infarction AMI was proposed by Killip and Kimball aiming at assessing the risk of in-hospital death and the potential benefit of specific management of care provided in Coronary Care Units CCU during the decade of In this study, we analyzed demographic variables age, gender, and ethnicitycardiovascular risk factors and comorbidities, physical examination information for the Killip-Kimball classification, simple hemodynamic parameters kkillip rate and systolic and diastolic blood pressureprevious treatments and procedures, and angiographic aspects [affected artery, TIMI flow, extent and severity of coronary artery disease CAD in those undergoing coronary angiography].


Coronary artery bypass graft; AMI: Moreover, in terms of scientific and clinical relevance, this study adds evidence to the available information on the Killip-Kimball classification in terms of prognostic value for mortality in very late follow-up post-AMI. N Engl J Med.

S3 and basal rales on auscultation. Therefore, this study aimed to validate the Killip-Kimball classification for total mortality in long-term clinical follow-up and compare its prognostic value in patients with NSTEMI and STEMI in the era of post-reperfusion and modern antithrombotic therapy.

Consistently, the Killip-Kimball classification was an independent predictor of increased risk of mortality. Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia. A two year experience with patients.

This stratification was based on the physical examination of patients with possible acute myocardial infarction AMIand it was used to identify those at the highest risk of death and the potential benefits of specialized care in coronary care units Killjp.

Prognostic importance of elevated jugular venous pressure and a third heart sound in patients with heart failure.

We also emphasize the pronounced decrease in survival in the first days after AMI for the highest Killil classes. Predictors of hospital mortality in the global registry of acute coronary events.

The backward stepwise procedure enabled the identification of the independent variables for the risk of death, according to AMI type.
