Registration of all ACS patients (STEMI and NSTEMI) admitted to the cardiology ward and scheduled for early invasive strategy. The aim is to evaluate the protective effects of early (on admission) high-dose high-potency statin therapy on early and mid-term cardiac and renal events in this subset of patients.
Statin-naive patients and those on statin therapy with ACS who are admitted to the cardiology ward of our public (National Health Service) hospital and are scheduled for early invasive strategy receive immediately on admission, always before angiographic procedure, high-dose statin therapy. Either atorvastatin 80 mg or rosuvastatin 40 mg is administered at the discretion of the physician. During hospitalization various pertinent cardiac and renal parameters, including hematological, angiographic, clinical data are registered in a dedicated database. Clinical follow-up and hematological analysis are done 1 month after discharge. A second follow-up, either clinical or by telephone, is done 1 year after discharge.

A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
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.
