Aspirin Resistance and Prognosis of Patients With Critical Limb Ischaemia (Aspirine)
Acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin, ASA) is the most widely prescribed drug used in primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. However, aspirin resistance has been described, mostly in cardiac patients and is an independent predictive factor for a poor survival. Two frequent conditions in patients with cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and hypercholesterolemia, are also considered as risk factors for aspirin resistance. Among patients with peripheral arterial disease, those with critical limb ischemia have the worst cardiovascular prognosis. At one year, 23% are dead, 25% have a major cardiovascular event and 25% have a major amputation (which can be combined). Aspirin resistance is poorly studied in these patients, and to our knowledge no study has been made to assess the prognosis value of aspirin resistance on cardiovascular outcomes in critical limb ischaemia patients.
Hospitalized critical limb ischaemia patients will be tested for aspirin resistance using the bed-side point of care VerifyNow®, and will be followed during one year, including death, fatal and non-fatal acute coronary syndromes, cardiac decompensation, stroke, and major amputation.
