The hypothesis:

Low dose intracoronary unfractionated heparin is as effective and safe as standard dose intravenous unfractionated heparin on patients with elective percutaneous coronary intervention.

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Disease Other: coronary intervention Phase 3

Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A RandomisED StUdy Comparing Standard Systemic Anticoagulation ThErapy to Low Dose Intracoronary Anticoagulation Therapy for Elective Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Study Completion Date: June 2010
Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Low dose intracoronary heparin
Low dose intracoronary heparin: In this group elective coronary intervention was performed with low dose intracoronary Heparin
Other: coronary intervention
elective coronary intervention
Active Comparator: Standard treatment arm
Standard treatment arm: In this group elective coronary intervention performed with standard dose intravenous heparin
Other: coronary intervention
elective coronary intervention

Detailed Description:


Primary objective:To evaluate the efficiency and safety of low dose intracoronary unfractioned heparin (UFH) on elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Secondary objective:

  • To evaluate the effect of low dose intracoronary UFH on myocardial ischemia after PCI.
  • To evaluate the effect of low dose intracoronary UFH on bleeding complications after PCI.
  • To evaluate the cost-effectivity of low dose intracoronary UFH on elective PCI

Study central:

  • Bursa Postgraduate Hospital, Cardiology Clinic

Study population:

  • we planned to enrol 200 patients.
  • Patients will randomise in two groups (control group:100 patients, study group:100 patients)

Study works:-Write case report form for all patients

  • Control for inclusion criteria
  • Demographic data (age, gender)
  • Height, weight, BMI and glomerular filtration rate (GFR)
  • Risk factors
  • laboratory data (biochemical and hematologic)
  • Medication history
  • Echocardiographic data
  • Angiographic data
  • Procedure time
  • PCI data(vessel diameter, stent diameter, lesion and stent length, performed percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) or not, etc)
  • Before and after procedure (activated clotting time) ACT value
  • Before and after procedure troponin I (TnI) and Creatine kinase MB (CKMB) levels
  • Note complication (MACE, bleeding, hematoma etc)
  • Note femoral compression time.

    4 weeks later note the first control data.

Six months later note the second control data.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The patients; who have planned elective PCI and have had written informed consent for participation to study.
  • The native coronary artery;

    • lesion with narrowing >=70%,
    • lesion without thrombus
    • no left main coronary artery (LMCA) lesion
    • no chronic total occlusion lesion

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients have allergy for acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), Clopidogrel and heparin
  • Patients who performed primary PCI
  • Patients with acute coronary syndrome
  • Patients with have a history of myocardial infarction (MI) for two weeks
  • Patients who were use UFH or low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) for 24 hours
  • Patients on warfarin therapy
  • Patients who have bleeding diathesis, or have high risk for bleeding.
