Patients diagnosed with coronary disease or atrial fibrillation. All the patients will undergo Global Thrombosis Test.
Other: Global Thrombosis Test
Patients will undergo the Global Thrombosis Test, before and after stabilisation of their cardiac condition. Cardiac stabilisation will be provided by clinical cardiac teams, outside and independently from the study. The Global Thrombosis Test assesses thrombotic and thrombolytic status, by measuring the time of thrombus (occlusion time, OT), and time needed for lysis of the thrombus (lysis time, LT).
Impaired thrombotic status is associated with adverse cardiovascular events. Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and atrial fibrillation (AF) are at increased risk of thrombotic events. It is not known whether thrombotic status differs in these patients, or how thrombotic status alters in response to clinical stabilisation with treatment.
The aim of this study is to assess the global thrombotic status (stickiness of the blood) in patients with coronary artery disease and atrial fibrillation at baseline and after clinical stabilisation.
This is a small, pilot, hypothesis-generating study. Design Single centre, hypothesis-generating study. Patients diagnosed with coronary disease (n=70) or atrial fibrillation (n=70) recruited from amongst in-patients or out-patients, will have a blood draw at presentation and after clinical stabilisation. Blood will be tested to assess global thrombotic status.
The recruitment period is 3 years.
