Primary Objective:

To investigate the value of the Edinburgh Claudication Questionnaire (ECQ) against the ankle-brachial index (ABI) in Canadian patients mainly followed in general practice, with documented acute coronary syndrome (ACS)/ischemic stroke (IS)/transient ischemic attack (TIA) and who are not known to have peripheral arterial disease (PAD) at the time of enrolment.

Secondary Objective:

To collect data on the prevalence of PAD in this population as measured by ABI.

Peripheral Vascular Diseases

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: The Value of Routine Screening for Diffuse Vascular Disease in the Canadian Post-Acute Coronary Syndrome/Ischemic Stroke/Transient Ischemic Attack General Practice Population With Previously Undocumented Peripheral Arterial Disease

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the sensitivity and specificity of the ECQ versus ABI. [ Time Frame: within 12 (+/- 2) weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the prevalence of symptomatic PAD (positive ECQ and ABIT <0.9) [ Time Frame: within 12 (+/- 2) weeks ]
  • To determine the prevalence of asymptomatic PAD (negative ECQ and ABI <0.9) [ Time Frame: within 12 (+/- 2) weeks ]

Estimated Enrollment: 2233
Study Start Date: April 2009
Study Completion Date: June 2010
Primary Completion Date: June 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Study Population
Patients with documented ACS or/and IS / TIA

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Documented acute coronary syndrome (Unstable angina, non-Q-wave myocardial infarction, Q-wave myocardial infarction) or/and documented ischemic stroke/transient ischemic attack (IS/TIA)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previously known symptomatic or asymptomatic PAD confirmed by one of the following diagnostic methods or interventions (documented in the patient's medical record):

    • Non-invasive or invasive vascular diagnostic tools (e.g.: ABI, Toe-brachial index, Duplex ultrasound, Magnetic resonance angiography, Computer tomographic angiography, Contrast angiography)
    • Previous related intervention (such as angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy, peripheral arterial bypass graft, other vascular intervention including amputation)
  • Patients whose ABI cannot be measured accurately
  • Patients already in a clinical trial or a product registry
  • Hospitalized patients

The above information is not intended to contain all considerations relevant to a patient's potential participation in a clinical trial.
