Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Troponin [ Time Frame: 8-10 hrs post PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Troponin labs will be drawn 8-10 hrs after PCI or at discharge whichever comes first

  • CK-MB [ Time Frame: 8-10 hrs post PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    CK-MB labs will be drawn 8-10 hrs after PCI or at discharge whichever comes first

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • TIMI flow rates [ Time Frame: During the PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, or ventricular fibrillation in coronary cath lab [ Time Frame: During the PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Incidence of non-sustained ventricular tachycardia or atrial fibrillation post PCI [ Time Frame: Following completion of PCI through hospital discharge ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Left ventricular end diastolic pressure (LVEDP) [ Time Frame: During the PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Successful PCI, death, myocardial infarction (biomarker greater than 2x normal), CHF, cardiac arrest [ Time Frame: At discharge or within 1 days, whichever comes first ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Death, MI, Revascularization, CHF [ Time Frame: 1-4 weeks post PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Ranolazine
Oral treatment Intervention: Drug: Ranolazine 1000 mg
Drug: Ranolazine
Drug: Ranolazine 1000 mg Oral dose twice per day for 3 days leading up to PCI
Other Name: Ranexa
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Oral treatment Intervention: Drug: Placebo

Detailed Description:

Ranolazine has been demonstrated to decrease angina, ischemia on perfusion imaging, improve diastolic function, and cardiac metabolism. Furthermore it has been associated with reduced cardiac arrhythmias, including non-sustained ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation. It has not been studied as an acute cardioprotective agent in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

We hypothesize that upfront administration of Ranolazine could decrease the myocardial injury associated with PCI due to all the factors listed above (i.e. precondition the myocardium). We plan to screen all patients scheduled for an elective coronary angiogram. Those who meet criteria and consent will be randomized to either receive Ranolazine or placebo twice a day for 3 days leading up to the PCI.
