Same-Day Discharge After Coronary Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) (GREECE)

This study has been terminated.
(Slow enrollment and high number of screen failures)
Information provided by:
Piedmont Healthcare Identifier:
First received: February 11, 2010
Last updated: September 20, 2013
Last verified: September 2013
Same day discharge is safe and feasible in selected troponin negative patients undergoing coronary planned percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or ad hoc PCI via the transfemoral approach.

Condition Intervention Phase
Acute Coronary Syndrome Procedure: Same-day discharge Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Feasibility and Safety of Same-Day Discharge of Troponin Negative Patients After Coronary PTCA Via the Transfemoral Approach

Further study details as provided by Piedmont Healthcare:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of cardiac MACE, major cerebral events, and groin complications [ Time Frame: 6, 12, and 18 months post study initation ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of compliance with dual antiplatelet therapy [ Time Frame: 6, 12 , and 18 months post study initiation ]

Enrollment: 57
Study Start Date: February 2010
Study Completion Date: March 2012
Primary Completion Date: August 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Same-day discharge
Same-day discharge following PCI
Procedure: Same-day discharge
Patients identified as clinically stable are discharged home the same day as the PCI procedure with telephone follow-up at 12 hr, 24 hr, 3, 30, 180 and 365 days post procedure.

Detailed Description:
The feasibility and safety of same day discharge post PCI will be examined. Study data will be compared to national registries and national or regional databases of PCI in Troponin negative patients with overnight stay. As part of the registry we will also assess compliance with dual antiplatelet therapy at six months and at 1 year and will record any reasons for premature discontinuation as well as any associated adverse events.
