Goodness of Clinical History During Stemi PCI

2014-08-27 03:17:48 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to confirm or confute the hypothesis that in patients treated with primary pci is not always possible to collect an adequate medical history, the investigators created a clinical registry in which the investigators collect current or previous medical history relevant to DES utilization , in two distinct times.


GHOST Registry

Use of drug-eluting stent (DES) in STEMI is sometimes limited, by the concern that adequate information, relating to the current or previous medical history, can not be obtained due to the patient's critical condition. A less than adequate medical history would expose patients treated with DES to a particular risk in case that an absolute or relative contraindication to the required long-term double antiplatelet therapy is not fully elucidated before DES implantation.

To confirm or confute the hypothesis that in patients treated with primary pci is not always possible to collect an adequate medical history, we created a clinical registry in which we collect current or previous medical history relevant to DES utilization , in two distinct times:

Time zero in which the medical history collection is taken in the cath-lab during the primary pci

Time one in which the second medical history collection is taken 4 days after the index procedure when the patient clinical conditions no longer impede an adequate medical history collection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.

A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.

Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.

The new and thickened layer of scar tissue that forms on a PROSTHESIS, or as a result of vessel injury especially following ANGIOPLASTY or stent placement.
