Study to investigate whether a smart technology intervention can improve clinical and cost-effectiveness of one-year follow-up in patients who suffered from acute myocardial infarction.
Rationale: Smart technology could improve quality of care in patients after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with either ST or non-ST elevation.
Objective: The objective of this study is to measure the effect of a smart technology intervention on patients after AMI.
Study design: The design of the study is a single-center, open randomized-controlled trial. Study population: The study population consists of patients who have been discharged from the ward of the cardiology department of the Leiden University Medical Center after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for either ST or non-ST elevation myocardial infarction.
Intervention: Patients will be randomized to either "The Box" or regular follow-up. Patients who have been randomized to The Box will receive a box containing a smartphone compatible electrocardiogram (ECG) monitor, a weight scale, an activity tracker and a blood pressure monitor. If patients are randomized to The Box, two of the four outpatient clinic visits will be replaced by an e-consult, in which a patient does not have to go to the hospital, but talks with his or her doctor or nurse practitioner via a secured video connection.
Main study parameters/endpoints: The primary endpoint of the study will be the percentage of patients with controlled blood pressure in both groups.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

Current non-invasive diagnostics for acute myocardial infarction (MI) identify myocardial necrosis rather than the primary cause and therapeutic target-plaque disruption and resultant thrombosis. The ...
Challenges to improving ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) care are formidable in low- to middle-income countries because of several system-level factors.
During the last decade, there has been an increased awareness of sex differences in the clinical characteristics, management, and mortality in myocardial infarction. Many previous studies have found t...
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.
A myocardial infarction that does not produce elevations in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. ST segment elevation of the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION 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.
