The National Tunisian Registry of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention is an observational, prospective and multicenter study aiming to assess coronary intervention strategies in tunisian departments of cardiology. Cardiologists from both sectors (public and private) are participating in the study, with 37 investigational centers. Data will be captured electronically by DACIMA Clinical Suite, according to FDA 21 CFR part 11 (Food and Drug Administration 21 Code of Federal Regulations part 11), HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) & ICH (International Conference on Harmonisation) requirements.
Background and rationale: Evaluating patients with acute chest pain, elevated high-sensitive cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) levels and non-diagnostic electrocardiogram (ECG), i.e. suspected non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (MI), is a daily challenge. Although contemporary hs-cTn assay-based algorithms have greatly facilitated clinical decision-making, still one-quarter of patients is categorized as 'observe' group and in whom a diagnosis initially remains unknown. Although routinely treated as acute (MI) with referral to invasive coronary angiography (ICA), up to one-third does not have obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). Follow-up cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) has been shown to be a very useful diagnostic tool in this setting but is not part of routine clinical care in every patient. Objectives: To investigate in patients with suspected non-ST elevation MI meeting the 'observe' criteria and who are scheduled for ICA: 1) the prevalence of coronary artery disease as well as non-coronary artery disease related and extra-cardiac diseases by adding CMR early in the diagnostic pathway, and 2) the number of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) and a composite of MACE and major (non-cardiac) adverse events after 30 days and one year. These objectives allow an accurate estimate of the number of potentially avoidable ICA in the future and whether early CMR could be a safe gatekeeper for inappropriate ICA. Study population and design: In this prospective, observational two-center study in The Netherlands (MUMC+ and VieCuri Medical Center), 87 consecutive patients with acute chest pain, non-diagnostic ECG and hs-cTn levels meeting the observe criteria and scheduled for ICA, will be investigated. Patients will undergo a comprehensive CMR examination prior to ICA and will be followed-up at one month and one year. After completion of follow-up, an independent clinical diagnosis committee will adjudicate a final diagnosis: at discharge and after one year. The final diagnosis at discharge will be adjudicated twice: once with and once without considering the results of CMR. For the diagnosis at one-year, all clinical variables and CMR results will be considered. MACE and complications will be scored after 30 days and one year. Main study parameters/endpoints: The primary endpoint is the prevalence of coronary artery disease as well as non-coronary artery disease related and extra-cardiac diseases. The secondary (safety) endpoint is the number of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) and a composite of MACE and major (non-cardiac) adverse events after 30 days and one year. Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, benefit and group relatedness: CMR is an accepted and safe imaging modality in patients with (suspected) non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction.
This study is a single-arm, 12-week trial to test the feasibility of a PP-MI intervention for patients recently admitted following ACS. PP-MI is a novel positive psychology-based health behavior intervention that is adapted for patients hospitalized for ACS. The intervention aims to cultivate positive emotions in this vulnerable population that could provide broad and significant health benefits, and may have distinct-and more powerful-effects than simply attempting to dampen negative emotions. The primary aim is to assess whether the intervention exercises are feasible and linked with immediate boosts in positive affect upon completion. The secondary goal is to provide the research team with greater experience recruiting inpatients with an ACS, successfully completing intervention sessions, and administering psychological and medical assessments by phone.
Chest pain is a very common reason for resorting to the call center. The etiologies are very varied, ranging from benign pathologies to some that may involve, in the short term, the vital prognosis such as Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). ACS is a partial or complete occlusion of a coronary artery that causes potentially irreversible myocardial pain unless prompt treatment is undertaken. ACS represents 120 000 cases per year in France and causes about 18 000 deaths. There is currently no support score for the assessment of chest pain. However, reducing the duration of management of ACS is essential in order to hope to reduce the associated morbidity and mortality. In 2016, SAMU45's team established a predictive ACS score for the assessement of chest pain in SAMU 45 (France) based on the prospective study of 1367 patients. Seven items significantly associated with this risk of ACS could be highlighted: age, sex, smoking, typicality (potentially constrictive chest pain radiating potentially to the shoulders and / or jaw) pain, inaugural character of pain (ie first episode of this type), presence of sweats and the physician's belief to be in the presence of an ACS. These seven variables make up the SCARE score. This had good internal discrimination (AUC at 0.81) and excellent calibration ("p" of Hosmer-Lemeshow at 0.74). This score makes it possible to stratify the risk of ACS, by using epidemiological elements but also the physician's belief, whose Negative Predictive Value (VPN) proved excellent. The objective of this new project is to confirm by an external validation via a multicentric study the robustness of this score and thus be able to consider its use in front of any chest pain regulated in France by a call center.
Elucidating the effects of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on cardiovascular outcomes in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is crucial in risk assessments and therapeutic recommendations for affected individuals. Although large epidemiological studies have reported an association between OSA and both coronary heart disease (CHD) and heart failure (HF), its effect on outcomes in ACS is still unclear. In contrast to previous theories attributing causation to OSA, recent studies have hypothesized a cardio protective role of OSA. Repetitive hypoxemic episodes noted in OSA may lead to myocardial ischemic preconditioning, possibly by increasing coronary collateral vessel recruitment, conferring protection from acute coronary events. We propose a prospective, observational, single center study in patients presenting with ACS, including ST segment elevation (STEMI), non-ST segment elevation (NSTEMI) and unstable angina who undergo coronary revascularization to determine the impact of OSA on clinical outcomes after ACS. Adult patients above age 18 years who present with myocardial infarction are eligible. Recruited patients will undergo an overnight sleep study using a level III portable diagnostic device before hospital discharge. The sleep tracings will be analyzed and audited by a certified sleep physician. The patients will be divided into 2 groups based on apnea-hypopnea index (AHI): OSA (AHI ≥ 15) and non-OSA (AHI < 15) groups. The primary end points of this study were in-hospital, 30 day and 6 month major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), defined as a composite endpoint of cardiovascular death, non-fatal MI, stroke and the need for unplanned repeat revascularization. Secondary endpoints include individual MACE outcomes of cardiovascular death, non-fatal MI, stroke, need for unplanned repeat revascularization, heart failure requiring hospitalization, and all-cause mortality.
