Ischemic heart disease is the most frequent cause of mortality in the surrounding countries. Once a coronary event is over, there is a high risk of readmission, recurrence and, mortality, attributed to a sub-optimal control of cardiovascular risk factors (CVRF), highlighting the need to improve secondary prevention strategies aimed at changing lifestyle and therapeutic adherence. Preventive measures should be initiated during hospitalization as recommended by the clinical guidelines. The objective of this study is to evaluate, through a randomized controlled clinical trial, the effect of an intervention based on a web application of health (e-Health) on lifestyle (diet, physical activity and tobacco consumption) and medication adherence in people with coronary heart disease after percutaneous coronary intervention.
The sample will consist of 240 participants, 120 in the intervention group and 120 in the usual care group that will be evaluated at the beginning and nine months after hospital discharge regarding sociodemographic, clinical, CVRF, lifestyle and therapeutic adherence characteristics. The educational intervention, monitoring and self-monitoring will be carried out using a web-based e-Health tool, mobile phone application. The quantitative primary results will be compared between the two groups using ANCOVA adjusting for age and sex. Multivariate analysis will be carried out to examine the association of the intervention with life habits, control of CVRF, as well as with the evolution after discharge in respect of cardiovascular events, emergency and re-entry views.

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.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
An imbalance between myocardial functional requirements and the capacity of the CORONARY VESSELS to supply sufficient blood flow. It is a form of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA (insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle) caused by a decreased capacity of the coronary vessels.
