Uninformative and misleading comparison of EuroSCORE and EuroSCORE II

Abstract:
In their recent paper, Kieser et al. compared the predictive performance of EuroSCORE against its successor EuroSCORE II in a consecutive series of isolated coronary artery bypass graft patients with total arterial grafting by a single surgeon. Although comparative validation studies such as these are extremely important, we have a number of concerns on the study design and analysis, for which we will highlight only a couple of issues, that question how anyone can meaningfully interpret their findings.
