The researchers aimed to investigate the effect of point-of-care platelet function assay on the periprocedural cardiac enzyme elevation in patients with diabetes mellitus.

All patients who are supposed to undergo coronary angiography were loaded with clopidogrel (300mg) and aspirin (300mg) at D-1. If patients were determined to implant coronary stent after diagnostic coronary angiography, their platelet function is assayed with Verifynow-ADP (Accumetrics). If patients have >270 unit in the assay, they are randomized to abciximab or control group. After successful stent implantation, cardiac enzymes (CK-MB, Troponin-I) are followed at 8hr, 16hr and 24hr. Clinical outcomes including bleeding complications are assessed at 1 month.

Further study details as provided by Seoul National University Bundang Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Peak cardiac enzyme level (CK-MB,troponin-I) [ Time Frame: within 24 hrs ]
    The investigators will check cardiac enzymes at 8hrs, 16hrs and 24hrs after percutaneous coronary intervention. We will take the highest value among those measured at three time points as a patient's peak cardiac enzyme level. The primary outcome of this study is to compare the peak cardiac enzyme level between two groups.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE): a composite of cardiac death, myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
  • Bleeding complications (cerebrovascular, intraocular, bleeding which needs transfusion more than 2 pints) [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
  • The rate of periprocedural myocardial infarction [ Time Frame: 8hr, 16hr, 24hrs ]
    The definition of periprocedural myocardial infarction : cardiac enzyme increase more than three times of upper normal limit
