In medicine, the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) Risk Score for unstable angina or non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) is a clinical prediction rule that originally was developed to predict the likelihood of morbidity in patients with unstable angina or NSTEMI.
The TIMI risk score is scored as one point for each of the following:
- Age 65 years or older
- At least 3 risk factors for coronary artery disease (family history or coronary heart disease, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes, current smoking)
- Prior coronary stenosis of 50% or more
- ST-segment deviation on electrocardiogram at presentation
- At least 2 anginal events in prior 24 hours
- Use of aspirin in prior 7 days
- Elevated serum cardiac markers
One study found that "the incidence of 30-day death, myocardial infarction, or revascularization for patients with a clinical impression of an alternative diagnosis and a TIMI score of 0 was 2.9%."
- 0-1 point: 5%
- 2 points: 8%
- 3 points: 13%
- 4 points: 20%
- 5 points: 26%
- 6-7 points: 41%
According to clinical practice guidelines, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is "indicated for patients with UA/NSTEMI who have no serious comorbidity and who have coronary lesions amenable to PCI and any of the high-risk features." High-risk features is later defined at "refractory angina or hemodynamic or electrical instability" or "elevated risk for clinical events" (high Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) risk score).
