The TIMI risk score is also useful in predicting which ACS patients will have a more favorable response to early invasive therapy when compared to medical management. The TACTICS (Treat Angina with Aggrastat and Determine the Cost of Therapy with an Invasive or Conservative Strategy)-TIMI 18 trial identified patients with an intermediate or high TIMI risk score who benefited from early invasive therapy, although the lowest risk patients appeared to do equally well on either approach . The TIMI risk score incorporates seven variables (1 point for each variable) that independently predict a composite of death, myocardial infarction, or urgent revascularization at 14 days.
