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.
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.

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).
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).
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.
A work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).
