Core Tip Elderly frail patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have increased risks of mortality and adverse cardiovascular events. It is important to integrate frailty into risk assessment tools. Therefore, this study underscores the importance of comprehensive frailty evaluations to enable informed decision-making in PCIs. The findings suggest that tailored interventions should be implemented to optimize outcomes and enhance care quality for this vulnerable population.
