The purpose of this study is to evaluate and monitor perioperative management of patients with coronary stents undergoing noncardiac surgery.


  • To describe the incidence and severity of adverse cardiovascular events in patients with coronary stents undergoing noncardiac surgery with admission.
  • To assess the following-up of the guidelines about the perioperative management of antiplatelet therapy in these patients.
  • To assess the relationship between the incidence of cardiac or neurovascular events, as well as bleeding complications with the perioperative management of antiplatelet therapy.
  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety

Acute Coronary Syndrome
Coronary Stent Occlusion

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Evaluation and Monitoring of Perioperative Management of Patients With Coronary Stents Undergoing Noncardiac Surgery

Further study details as provided by Corporacion Parc Tauli:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Major Adverse Cardiac and Cerebrovascular Events (MACCEs) [ Time Frame: up to 90 days after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Cardiac Mortality, Myocardial Infarction, Angina Pectoris, new arrythmia, Congestive Heart Failure, Stroke, Cardiac Arrest

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Major Haemorrhagic Events [ Time Frame: up to 90 days after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Transfusion > = 2 red blood cells Units, haemoglobin descent >= 20 gr/dL, intracerebral haemorrhage

  • Number of Patients With Adverse Events Related With Antiplatelet Therapy Management [ Time Frame: 90 days after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Perioperative withdrawal antiplatelet therapy is defined with > or = 5 days without therapy

    We create 3 categories:

    1. Not withdrawal
    2. Complete withdrawal (5 or > days without antiplatelet drugs , mono or dual therapy)
    3. Incomplete withdrawal: patients under dual antiplatelet therapy, who maintain aspirin and stopped clopidogrel =/ > 5 days

Enrollment: 483
