Registry Experience at the Washington Hospital Center, DES - Endeavor for Myocardial Infarction

2014-08-27 03:18:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Single-center registry of patients treated with at least one Endeavor, zotarolimus-eluting, Stent as the primary treatment for acute coronary syndrome at the Washington Hospital Center, with the aim of assessing clinical success and safety at 30 days, 6 months and annually for up to 3 years post Endeavor Stent implantation.

Description

Interventional cardiology was revolutionized by the invention of stents, initially with the bare-metal stents (BMS) and recently with the drug-eluting stents (DES).Zotarolimus-eluting stents have shown promising results in randomized clinical trails, demonstrating a reduction of clinical and angiographic restenosis in comparison to BMS, and comparable clinically-driven target lesion revascularization rates in comparison with Sirolimus-eluting stents. While short-term and 1 year registry data is available from outside of the United States, it will be important to collect "real-world" data regarding the stent usage and outcomes in the United States. In this study we propose to follow patients who received at least one Endeavor® Stent as primary treatment for ACS for up to 3 years post initial stent implantation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.

A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.

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.

Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
