  1. To evaluate the role of VerifyNow test as prognostic marker in routine clinical practice using drug-eluting stents.
  2. To determine the add-on-effect of VerifyNow test beyond on conventional risk factors (clinical, lesions, or procedural factors).
  3. To compare the prognostic utility of VerifyNow test with several biomarkers.

patients receiving drug-eluting stents

Detailed Description:

Predictive role of a point-of-care assay (VerifyNow test) has not been well evaluated in large number of patients receiving drug-eluting stents as a routine practice.

In addition, additional predictive effect of a point-of-care assay, as compared to conventional clinical factors or other biomarkers, might be clinically interesting and important.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
The study population included consecutive patients with de novo coronary artery disease who underwent an initial PCI with drug-eluting stents and had VerifyNow test at the Asan Medical Center (Seoul, Korea)

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Consecutive patients with established coronary artery disease receiving PCI with stent implantation

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Cardiogenic shock
  • Patients using concomitant medication known to affect platelet function other than aspirin (i.e. nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents, dipyramidole, upstream glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors)
  • patients with a known platelet function disorder or a whole blood platelet count of less than 150000/μL.
