Synopsis: 
The GRACE risk score, which was developed in a predominantly Caucasian population, was not previously tested in a Caribbean population. This study found it to be a reliable predictor of in-hospital mortality in a multi-ethnic Trinidadian acute coronary syndrome population, making it a useful risk stratification tool.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine whether risk stratification using the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk score is a predictor of in-hospital mortality for ACS patients in a multi-ethnic Caribbean population.
