Figure 1
Figure 1 Hospital outcomes for patients with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction/unstable angina. aP < 0.05 and bP < 0.0001 across all categories of renal function. Modified from Santopinto et al[8]. NSTEMI: Non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction.

Figure 2 Incidence of adverse event by glomerular filtration rate groups: stroke, in-hospital thrombolysis in myocardial infarction major bleeding, recurrent myocardial infarction, and recurrent ischemia at 30 d. The number of patients within each subgroup is displayed at the bottom of each bar. Glomerular filtration rate is expressed in mL/min per 1.73 m2. From Gibson et al[11]. GFR: Glomerular filtration rate.

Figure 3 Six-month mortality, stratified by glomerular filtration rate and biomarker levels. A: Stratification by high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels. bP < 0.001; B: Stratification by Troponin I (cTnI) levels; C: Stratification by B-type natriuretic peptide levels. From Gibson et al[11]. BNP: B-type natriuretic peptide; GFR: Glomerular filtration rate.
