CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards


CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards During Ireland's Presidency of the European Union (EU) (January to June 2004), the Department of Health and Children in Ireland worked with the EuropeanSociety of Cardiology, the Irish Cardiac Society and the European Commission to develop data standards for use in clinical cardiology. The Cardiology Audit and Registration Data Standards (CARDS) Project aimed to agree data standards for three modules of cardiovascular health information systems, viz. - acute coronary syndromes (ACS), percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), and clinical electrophysiology (EP) (pacemakers, implantable cardioverterdefibrillators and ablation procedures).
A Coordination Committee and three multidisciplinary Expert Committees were established to develop the data standards, for use throughout the Europe, for each of the three modules. All existing databases, registries and surveys data sets were obtained, scrutinised very carefully and compiled into one largematrix for each of the modules. The main objective of each of the Expert Committees was to produce standardised data sets limited to less than 100variables. The variables derived had to reflect current treatment guidelines, and also were to be of use for clinical audit, clinical care of patients, serviceplanning and epidemiology. The process involved regular meetings of the Expert Committees, electronic communication between members, and consultationwith specialist groups and cardiac societies represented by the European Society of Cardiology. The development of the draft data standards for the threemodules was completed in April 2004.
These draft data standards were reviewed, discussed and formally adopted at a conference involving EU Member States in Cork, Ireland, in May 2004.
Members of the Expert Committees have carried out pilot tests within their own institutions to test the clarity and feasibility of using the data standards. Thedata standards and accompanying descriptive information will be disseminated to stakeholders throughout Europe from September to December 2004. TheEuropean Society of Cardiology will act as steward in this initiative.

CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards 1.1 Description of PCI data standards
These are data standards for recording data on percutaneous coronary intervention [PCI] procedures. 1.2 Description of the PCI Data Standards structure
The data standards are set out under headings, as follows: 1. Field ID Number – each data field has an identification number. Data items that are common to the three modules [CCU/ACS, PCI and EP] have the
same Field ID Number
2. Field name – this is a prompt or title for the field that could be used on a data entry form or screen, for example date of birth.
3 & 4. Field content – the field may have options. These contain two types of items for coding. It contains a short numerical code for classification and also
a short string, again identifying a classification. For example the data field Sex he options (1) Male, (2) Female and (9) Unknown, the numerical codes are
(1), (2) and (9) and the short string includes male, female and unknown.
5. Definition of field – This is a description/explanation of the field name.
6. Definition of field options - This is a definition of the field content
7. Data format – this identifies the field's format. Example of formats include date, date and time, numeric, text single value and text multiple values. The
classification used can be seen in appendix 2.
1.3 Source documents used to develop the PCI Data Standards


CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards Source documents included national and international registers and internationally recognised guidelines. Below is a list of the national and international
databases, registers, surveys and guidelines that were used to compile the Percutaneous Coronary Intervention matrix from which the data standards were
derived. A brief description of some of the sources is given in section 1.6.
Databases, Registries and Surveys on Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
The European Coronary Intervention Register Austria's National PTCA database The Spanish Registry of Cardiac Catheter Interventions (SRCCI)
The Swedish Coronary Angiography Angioplasty Registry (SCARR)
The American College of Cardiology Cath lab module v3.0 The British Cardiac Interventional Society's Coronary Angioplasty Register (BCIS)
The Mater Hospital Dublin PCI Register Shakespeare Registry Arbeitsgemeinschaft Leitender Kardiologischer Krankenhausarzte (German PCI Registry) (ALKK)
The Euro Heart Survey on Revascularisation for Ischemic Heart Disease 2001 The Swiss Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Register The Polish PCI Register The Italian Drug Eluting Stent Register (ELISIR)

American College of Cardiology [ACC] and the American Heart Association [AHA] guideline for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention 2001
1.4 Priority Ratings
Priority rating refers to the overall importance of the variable to be collected in relation to the following objectives: - CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards Service planning and funding agencies x Epidemiological research Variables to be collected are to be considered under three priority groupings, viz. High - these variables will be of prime importance in relation to the above objectives
NB - the variables in this group would be essential components of a minimum core data set and include variables without which the data would be considered useless,
e.g. sex, age, diagnosis. These variables include those, which would be essential in order to link up with other cardiovascular disease surveillance datasets.
Medium – these would help build up a complete picture of the patient but would not necessarily alter the definitive care of the patient.
Low – these are variables that do not impact on patient care during the PCI or in hospital prior to discharge. Again they would help complete the information in relation to
the event leading to admission. However, they may in the future be available from other cardiac disease information surveillance modalities, e.g. cardiac rehabilitation,
general practitioner (GP) surveys. Also these variables would be considered of least importance in meeting the objectives of collecting the data.
NOTE: All data items are seen as high priority unless otherwise stated. Data items deemed as medium priority are marked MP and low priority data items are marked asLP in the field ID number.
1.5 Description of the PCI Data Standards structure - sections
The data standards is subdivided into the following sections: Demographics: the demographic section contains data fields such as date of birth, and sex.
History [relevant to Coronary Artery Disease, CAD]: includes data on the patient's previous medical history such as, previous myocardial
infarction, and also includes data fields for previous tests, interventions and procedures such as, percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), and
coronary artery bypass graft (CABG).
Risk factors [relevant to Coronary Artery Disease, CAD]: the risk factor section contains data fields for current risk factors relating to CAD, for
example smoking, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.
CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards Investigations for Coronary Artery Disease: this includes data on investigation that the patient underwent before PCI, examples include: - stress
test, angiogram, echocardiogram, and holter monitor.
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: This subsection focuses on revascularisation by PCI.
Medication during PCI: this subsection collects data on the medication that was administered during this hospital stay, both in relation to coronary
artery disease status and PCI.
Outcome: this captures data on the immediate outcome after the PCI.
For example did the patient experience a stroke, a major bleed, or did the patient have any serious complications as a result of the PCI. Medication: discharge: includes data items on medication at discharge from hospital.
Follow up: it is proposed to collect information at 30 days and 12 months after the index event. This section captures information on whether the
patient is dead /alive at the time of follow- up. This section also captures data on readmission to hospital, major adverse cardiac events and
medication at follow up
1.4 Description of registers and databases

Type: This is a computer-based system where data are collected on PTCA (>200,000 patients), on direct angioplasty in acute myocardial infarction (ca. 5000
patients), on coronary stenting (>50,000 patients), and on carotid stenting.
Details on the data set: The register includes data on baseline characteristics, the indication for the procedure, the immediate outcome for the procedure,
and the in-hospital course.
Coverage: This registry collects core data on all patients undergoing a percutaneous coronary intervention in 86 participating German centres.
The Euro Heart Survey on Revascularisation for Ischaemic Heart Disease 2001
Devised by: the Scientific Expert Committee for Euro Heart Revascularisation within the European Society of Cardiology devised this survey in 2000. The
data were collected between September 2001 and January 2002.
Type: each country has a national co-ordinator (a national authority in cardiology) who represents the Euro Heart Survey at national level and helps to select
appropriate hospitals for the survey. The data are collected over a 1-4 month period by qualified DCOs (Data Collection Officers) and entered on-site in an
electronic database. The content of the database is then transferred to the Euro Heart Survey Department at the Heart House (in Sophia Antipolis, France)
via the Internet where it is submitted to a quality data check. When the data has successfully passed this procedure it is considered to be final and ready for
analysis.
Details on data set: Angiography, PCI and CABG are the main topics in this survey, but data are also collected on the hospital facilities, risk factors,
immediate outcome and one-year clinical outcome.
Coverage: 25 countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania,
the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and UK.
Swiss Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Register
Devised by: the Swiss Society of Cardiology devised this register in 1987.
CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards Type: This is a yearly questionnaire.
Details on data set: It is based on a standardised questionnaire that includes the minimal data set of the European Register of Coronary Catheter
Interventions. Some quality control of the gathered data was assured by submitting a non-blinded summary to all involved cardiac catheterisation laboratories
for corrections before open publication of individualised data in a Swiss medical journal once a year
Coverage: 25 institutions in Switzerland are involved (5 university hospitals, 10 public hospitals and 10 private hospitals).
The Italian Drug Eluting Stent Registry (ELISIR)
Devised by: the Italian Society of Cardiology.
Type: The enrollment of patients started on October 2002. The purpose of this registry was to verify the effective use of drug eluting stent (DES) in the 162
Italian cath labs and to evaluate if the indications are different/similar to that of other countries. Data about Italian patients who underwent PCI with DES
implantation were collected by a computer-based system. Information is written on the electronic web page of the Italian Society of Invasive Cardiology,
named GISE.
Details on data set: Registration included background factors such as age sex, risk factors, function group, procedure data, and complications during and
after investigations/treatment, type of DES deployed (diameter, length, apposition etc) and the primary result after intervention.
Coverage: Forty-nine (49) Italian catheterisation laboratories participated in this registry and 2262 patients were enrolled from November the 1st 2002 to
October the 12th 2003.

Reference: Myocardial infarction redefined- a consensus document of the Joint European Society of Cardiology/American College of Cardiology Committeefor the redefinition of myocardial infarction. Euro Heart Journal. 2000;21:1502-1513 (altered) Either one of the following criteria satisfies the diagnosis for an acute, evolving, or recent MI:
1. Typical rise of biochemical markers of myocardial necrosis (troponin or CK-MB) with at least 1 of the following: a. Ischaemic symptomsb. Development of pathological Q waves on the ECGc. ECG changes indicative of ischaemia (ST-segment elevation or depression); for further description see below -ECG changes indicative of myocardial ischemia that may progress to MId. Coronary artery intervention (e.g., coronary angioplasty) 2. Pathological findings of an acute MI ECG changes indicative of myocardial ischaemia that may progress to MI
1. Patients with ST segment elevation: New or presumed new ST segment elevation at the J point in two or more contiguous leads with the cut-off points • 0·2 mV in leads V1, V2, or V3 and • 0·1mV in other leads (contiguity in the frontal plane is defined by the lead sequence aVL, I, inverted aVR, II, aVF, III).
2. Patients without ST segment elevation: a. ST segment depressionb. T wave abnormalities only Criteria for established MI
Any one of the following criteria satisfies the diagnosis for established MI: CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards 1. Development of new pathologic Q wave on serial ECGs. The patient may or may not remember previous symptoms. Biochemical marker of myocardial necrosis may have normalized, depending on the length of time that has passed since the infarct developed.
2. Pathologic finding of a healed or healing MI. CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards Appendix 2 – classification of data format
This column identifies to the supplier the type of storage and the type of processing required for the field. The 'n' indicates the field is numeric. The '1' indicates themaximum length of the value. If 'n1' or 'n2' appears on its own, it will be a numeric value, for example a count. See also 'Code'.
The 'n' indicates the field is numeric. The '3.1' indicates the value may have up to three integer place and one decimal place.
The 'an' indicates the field is alpha numeric. That is, unless otherwise specified, the value may contain any letter, digit or punctuation character. The '7' or '100' indicates the maximumlength of the value. If 'an100' appears on its own, the field is free text The field is a classification field whose permitted values are either defined as part of the dataset The short form is the value listed in the 'Short code' column.
The long form is: Short-code full-stop space Text-for-long-code.
For example, the Short code and Text for long code columns for Gender contain: Any of the following will be accepted CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards The size component of Gender is given as ‘n1', which is the minimum to store the value. Implementers who decide to store the long form within their database would need to make their own determination of the storage requirements.
The majority of codes defined within this dataset will remainunchanged for the life of the dataset. However a small numberof code lists identify devices and drugs and new values may be added The field is an identifier or a code whose permitted values are not defined as part of the dataset or by CCAD. Examples include: NHS Number and GMC number.
The field is a date. [Date (dd/mm/yyyy)] DateTime The field is a date and a time [DateTime (dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm)] Multivalue This modifier can only occur in conjunction with 'Code' or 'Id'.
The addition of ‘Multivalue' to the format means that the codevalue may repeat.
For example: for a field listing previous procedures the codesmight be: 0 None1 Procedure A CARDS PCI Expert Committee PCI Data Standards 2 Procedure B3 Procedure C9 Unknown A patient might have been the subject of none of these procedures, the surgeon might not know the patient's surgicalhistory or the patient might have been the subject of any one, two or all three of the procedures.
For this example field, the maximum number of values is 3 (procedures A, B and C) so implementers would have to determine a method of storing up to three code values in their database. Warning, some multivalue fields are volatile so the maximum number of For the transfer file, a semi-colon delimiters to hold the separatecode values within a single field.
