|Abstract:||We assessed the influence of CKD on bleeding in 200 patients with ACS via retrospective chart analysis. Using K/DOQI guidelines to stratify patients based on GFR, no differences in documented bleeding or antithrombotic utilization were observed among the groups. Due to increased mortality risk of patients with CKD from cardiovascular disease, assessing benefit-to-risk ratios of various medical interventions is crucial.|
