The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Francesco Pelliccia, University of Roma La Sapienza
  Purpose
It has previously been shown that pretreatment with ranolazine 1,000 mg twice daily for 7 days can significantly reduce procedural myocardial injury in elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The investigators tested the hypothesis that twice overnight high-dose ranolazine loading before PCI can reduce the peri-procedural myocardial ischemic damage similarly to long-term pre-treatment with standard doses.

Further study details as provided by Francesco Pelliccia, University of Roma La Sapienza:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of PCI-induced myocardial infarction [ Time Frame: Up to 48 hours after PCI ]
    Occurrence of peri-procedural myocardial infarction (i.e. creatine kinase-MB>3 times the upper reference limit)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of post-PCI peak values of markers of myocardial damage [ Time Frame: Baseline and 48 hours after PCI ]
    Changes after percutaneous coronary intervention in absolute values of creatine kinase, creatine kinase-MB, myoglobin, and troponin I

  • Rate of 30-day MACE [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after PCI ]
    30-day incidence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE—death, myocardial infarction, target vessel revascularization)

Detailed Description:

Background

Ranolazine is a novel antianginal drug that reduces intracellular sodium and calcium accumulation during ischemia thus limiting ischemic injury.

It has previously been shown that pretreatment with ranolazine 1,000 mg twice daily for 7 days can significantly reduce procedural myocardial injury in elective percutaneous coronary intervention.

It remains unknown, however, which of these two therapeutic approaches is more effective after PCI.

Purpose

The primary objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that twice overnight high-dose ranolazine loading before PCI can reduce the peri-procedural myocardial ischemic damage similarly to long-term pre-treatment with standard doses.
