Angioplasty to Blunt the Rise of Troponin in Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)

2014-07-23 21:30:02 | BioPortfolio


Release of troponin evaluated by the peak of troponin during the hospital phase.Because of its sensitivity and specificity as well as its widespread use in routine practice, rise in troponin levels is the main assessment criteria of this study. We plan to demonstrate a significantly altered distribution of the troponin release as evaluated by the peak of troponin for each patient during the hospitalization period (from randomization to cardiologic unit discharge), in the two arms of the trial.


We propose to evaluate the optimal moment for catheterization in patients presenting with acute coronary syndromes by comparing rapid catheterization on the day of admission (within 8 hours of admission, with an average time close to 3 hours, as in the rapid strategy arm of the ISAR-COOL trial) with a slower approach where the examination is scheduled for the next working day (8 to 60 hours post admission, with an average close to 24 hours). Patients included will present with severe unstable angina defined as a TIMI score > 3 All patients must present with an indication for catheterization and they will receive the same optimal pharmacological treatment including abciximab (ReoPro*) when undergoing PCI and started just before the procedure as indicated in the label of the drug (substitution by another drug of the class, eptifibatide or tirofiban, is not possible in the catheterization laboratory according to the labels of these two other drugs). Randomization will evaluate only time to catheterization: rapidly, as soon as possible following admission (within 8 hours of admission) versus a delayed approach (8 to 60 hours following admission). The goal of randomization is to determine the ideal time to catheterization while indications for catheterization, pharmacological treatment, and patient care remain constant. This is a pragmatic study aiming to compare 2 different strategies in the management of ACS.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions


Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.

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

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.

Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
