  Purpose

To study compliance with secondary prevention during the first months following discharge from the cardiac intensive care unit (CIC) of patients experiencing a first episode of acute coronary syndrome : quantitative compliance over 3 months with the two principal treatments of the prescription (a statin - rosuvastatin, Crestor® and a platelet aggregation inhibitor - clopidogrel, Plavix®), using an electronic measure system ("intelligent blister" pack®);

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To measure, using an electronic system ("intelligent blister pack®"), the duration of treatment and number of treatment intake per day over 3 months with statin and oral antiplatelet therapy following an inaugural acute coronary syndrome. [ Time Frame: 3 months / every day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Analysis of the duration of treatment and number of treatment intake per day at 1 month and 2 months with a statin and a platelet aggregation inhibitor, using an electronic system ("intelligent blister pack®"). [ Time Frame: 1 and 2 months / every day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Describe global compliance with the entire prescription over 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months / Once at 6 months follow-up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine the factors influencing compliance with treatment on discharge from CIC (discharge treatment including a statin - rosuvastatin, Crestor® and a platelet aggregation inhibitor - clopidogrel, Plavix®). [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Study Population

First 10 patients admitted to the CIC unit for a first episode of acute coronary syndrome, in whom the CIC cardiologist considers that Crestor® - rosuvastatin is the most appropriate statin for management in hospital, in combination with a platelet aggregation inhibitor (Plavix® - clopidogrel).

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient admitted to the CIC unit for a first episode of acute coronary syndrome, in whom the CIC cardiologist considers that Crestor® -rosuvastatin is the most appropriate statin, in combination with a platelet aggregation inhibitor (Plavix®-clopidogrel)
  • Patient giving his/her oral consent to participate in the study.
  • Patient not previously treated by a lipid-lowering drug.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient with a known history of coronary heart disease.
  • Patient whose treatment on discharge comprises only one of the two study treatments
  • Patient participating or who has participated in the previous 3 months in a biomedical research study in cardiology.
