The results showed a wide gap between the recommendations and clinical practice with many patients not achieving the lifestyle and medical risk factors goals for CVD prevention. This survey will also incorporate an assessment of dysglycaemia and kidney function in all patients. The main outcome measures will be the proportions of coronary and high cardiovascular risk patients achieving the lifestyle, risk factor and therapeutic targets for cardiovascular disease prevention.
The data collection will be based on a review of patient medical records and a patient interview and examination at least 6 months and at most 3 years after recruiting event. This fifth survey will give a unique picture of preventive action by cardiologists and primary care physicians looking after patients with coronary disease and individuals at high CVD risk. This fifth survey incorporate an assessment of dysglycaemia and kidney function in all patients. As in the previous EUROASPIRE surveys this survey focusses on hospital patients with coronary heart disease, with and without diabetes mellitus, and apparently healthy individuals in primary care at high risk of developing cardiovascular disease including those with diabetes.
This multicentre European study identifies risk factors in coronary patients and high-risk individuals, describes their management through lifestyle and use of drug therapies providing an objective assessment of clinical implementation of scientific knowledge as reflected in current European management guidelines.
For the first time we extended this new survey to include more information about medication adherence, atrial fibrillation, familial hypercholesterolemia and statin intolerance as risk factors for cardiovascular disease. This fifth survey will give a unique European picture of preventive action by cardiologists, other specialists and primary care physicians looking after patients with coronary disease and their families, individuals at high risk of developing CVD and all those with dysglycaemia, diabetes and chronic kidney disease CKD in Europe.
