Objective: It is crucial to identify the high-risk group in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). To date, various stratification tools have been developed to predict adverse events. However, the PR interval is a readily available parameter in routine clinical practice. This study aimed to investigate the role of the PR interval in predicting major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in patients with ACS who were performed PCI.
