Cardiogoniometry for Early Diagnosis of Coronary Artery Disease Symptomatik

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Stiftung Institut fuer Herzinfarktforschung
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01174680
First received: June 7, 2010
Last updated: March 13, 2017
Last verified: August 2010
  Purpose
The register study CGM@CAD will examine whether cardiogoniometry can provide additional information concerning the indication for a diagnostic coronary angiography and if so, which additional value it has. Therefore, an additional cardiogoniometry will be carried out in consecutive patients who have been diagnosed with myocardial ischemia by means of established methods (exercise ECG, stress echocardiography, myocardial scintigraphy, or stress-MRT) and for whom an intracardiac catheter examination is regarded as indicated. The results of the different methods - particularly the results of the exercise ECG and the cardiogoniometry - will be checked against the results of the invasive examination as gold standard and the discharge diagnosis with regards to any correlation.

Condition Intervention
Stable Angina Pectoris Procedure: cardiogoniometry

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • additional value of cardiogoniometry [ Time Frame: at hospital admission ]
    The protocol defines that the medical examination is to be preformed at hospital adimssion and again at discharge. Aim is to examine if cardiogoniometry can provide additional information for the decision to perform a diagnostic coronary angiography and if so, which additional value it has.

Enrollment: 43
Actual Study Start Date: December 2010
Study Completion Date: April 2011
Primary Completion Date: February 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: patients with stable angina pectoris
stable patients, who have been admitted to one of the participating centres for an elective coronary angiography
Procedure: cardiogoniometry
In the course of the project a cardiogoniometry will be carried out during the ambulant or residential hospitalization before the coronary angiography.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:
