Abstract

The OASIS-5 (Organization to Assess Strategies in Ischemic Syndromes-5) trial demonstrated that fondaparinux was noninferior to enoxaparin while reducing the risk of bleeding by 50%. The objectives of our study were to assess the effects of fondaparinux compared to enoxaparin in patients stratified by their Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) score and to examine the ability of the GRACE score to predict bleeding in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
