Canadian Anticoagulant Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Registry (CAPCIR)

This study has been completed.

Last verified: October 2011
Advances in mechanical intervention (PCI) and anticoagulation therapy have been the cornerstone of treatment of patients with coronary artery disease. However, the large diversity of approaches to anticoagulation during PCI introduces gaps in knowledge regarding management of cardiac patients. As such, we have initiated a national PCI registry to elucidate anticoagulant choice, dosing strategies, case selection dynamics, and clinical outcomes in the Canadian health care environment.

Further study details as provided by Robert Welsh, University of Alberta:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Description of anticoagulant management during PCI and current practices of participating centres will be undertaken [ Time Frame: in-hospital ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • In-hospital safety outcomes including - major, minor bleeding, requirement for transfusion, death, myocardial infarction (or re-MI), myocardial ischemia requiring urgent revascularization, and major bleeding [ Time Frame: in-hospital ]
  • In-hospital angiographic complications: no reflow, thrombus, occlusion of collateral branches, distal embolism, coronary dissection, acute closure of the culprit vessel [ Time Frame: in-hospital ]
  • PCI-related resources utilization during the study period, including cost of PCI and its treatment (e.g. duration of hospital stay, drug costs, costs related to bleeding such as transfusions) [ Time Frame: in-hospital ]

Enrollment: 747
Study Start Date: February 2008
