Frailty as an INstrument for Evaluation of Elderly Patients With Non ST ElevationMyocardial Infarction (NSTEMI) - 5 Year Follow up

2016-09-22 21:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In the FINE 75+ study, 307 Non ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (NSTEMI) patients, 75 years old or older, were included between September 2009 and June 2010. The purpose of this observational study (FINE75+5) is to describe these patients, especially regarding the following variables: cardiovascular risk, co-morbidity and frailty, and to assess the prognostic value of frailty on 5-year outcomes. We hypothesize that frailty is independently associated with 5-year mortality.

Description

The term frailty denotes a multi-dimensional syndrome characterized by increased vulnerability and decreased physiologic reserves. Frailty stratification predicts a patient's risk of death and need for institutional care. The construct is well validated, but there is not one single accepted operational definition. The CSHA Clinical Frailty Scale (CFS) is a 7-point scale relying on clinical judgement. It is a global clinical measure of biological age, and it mixes co-morbidity, disability and cognitive impairment.Though frailty instruments so far mainly have been used in a geriatric context, it has been pointed out as relevant for cardiologic patients as well, e.g. regarding risk stratification for elderly patients with NSTEMI.

In the FINE 75+ study, 307 Non ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (NSTEMI) patients, 75 years old or older, were included between September 2009 and June 2010. We reported importance of frailty for short-term (1 month) and medium-term outcome (1 year) in a NSTEMI population (Ekerstad et al. 2011, Ekerstad et al. 2013). However, there are no published data on the importance of frailty on longer-term outcome. Information on long-term prognosis may substantially improve informed decision making in elderly patients with NSTEMI, with acute potentially harmful treatments aiming at improved long-term prognosis.

The purpose of this study is to describe patients, 75 years old or older, with NSTEMI especially regarding the following variables: cardiovascular risk, co-morbidity and frailty, and to assess the prognostic value of frailty on 5-year outcomes.For the purpose of the current analysis all patients included in the final FINE 75+ study will be followed over 5 years from hospital admission. We hypothesize that frailty is independently associated with 5-year mortality.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.

Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.

An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
