  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to confirm or confute the hypothesis that in patients treated with primary pci is not always possible to collect an adequate medical history, the investigators created a clinical registry in which the investigators collect current or previous medical history relevant to DES utilization , in two distinct times.

Condition
Myocardial Infarction

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Goodness of Clinical History During Stemi PCI (GHOST)

Further study details as provided by Menichelli Maurizio, Umberto I Hospital, Frosinone Italy:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Adequacy of medical history collection at the moment of primary pci and 4 days after the index procedure [ Time Frame: Adequacy of medical history collection at the moment of primary pci and 4 days after the index procedure ]

Enrollment: 400
Study Start Date: March 2010
Study Completion Date: March 2012
Primary Completion Date: January 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
STEMI patients treated with PCI
Four hundred patients with STEMI treated with primary PCI or rescue PCI.

Detailed Description:

GHOST Registry

Use of drug-eluting stent (DES) in STEMI is sometimes limited, by the concern that adequate information, relating to the current or previous medical history, can not be obtained due to the patient's critical condition. A less than adequate medical history would expose patients treated with DES to a particular risk in case that an absolute or relative contraindication to the required long-term double antiplatelet therapy is not fully elucidated before DES implantation.

To confirm or confute the hypothesis that in patients treated with primary pci is not always possible to collect an adequate medical history, we created a clinical registry in which we collect current or previous medical history relevant to DES utilization , in two distinct times:

Time zero in which the medical history collection is taken in the cath-lab during the primary pci

Time one in which the second medical history collection is taken 4 days after the index procedure when the patient clinical conditions no longer impede an adequate medical history collection.
