EVINCI results could lead to 75 percent reduction of invasive procedures for patients with suspected CAD
Date:6/26/2012

Madrid, 26 June 2012: Preliminary findings from the EVINCI study show that the prevalence of "significant" coronary artery disease in patients with chest pain symptoms is lower than expected in Europe. In as much as 75% of this population an accurate non-invasive screening could avoid unnecessary and costly invasive procedures. The three year multicentre European trial will define the most cost effective strategy for diagnosing patients with suspected coronary artery disease.

The EValuation of INtegrated Cardiac Imaging (EVINCI) study was completed on 15 June. Preliminary results were presented during the EVINCI Consortium's final meeting at the University Hospital Ramn y Cajal in Madrid, Spain, on 26 June. EVINCI was designed by members of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Working Group on Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT. www.escardio.org/evinci

The trend of increasing cardiovascular mortality in Europe has been reversed over the last 20 years mainly due to effective treatment of acute coronary syndromes and prevention of coronary artery diseases through tackling risk factors. The decrease in mortality has been accompanied by an increased prevalence of chronic coronary artery disease and heart failure. The net result is that health systems are seeing more patients with suspected coronary artery disease and an effective diagnosis and treatment are required.

In Europe and the US, most patients with suspected coronary disease undergo invasive procedures without first having preliminary effective non-invasive screening. But obstructive coronary disease is present in less than 40% of patients undergoing invasive coronary angiography, according to data from recent international registries. "It is thus obvious that we definitely need better selection of high risk patients by non-invasive means to avoid costly, risky and inappropriate invasive procedures," says Dr Neglia.
