However, an association between platelet reactivity and MSIMI has not been established 1 Assess platelet aggregation before and after mental stress testing in patients with known coronary heart disease Hypothesis: Patients who are susceptible to MSIMI will have increased mental stress induced platelet aggregation compared to those without MSIMI REMIT NHLBI sponsored randomized clinical trial designed to assess the efficacy of escitalopram on MSIMI in patients with established coronary artery disease Eligible patients: Adults with clinically stable coronary heart disease (prior stenosis > 70%, or history of myocardial infarction or revascularization) Study Procedure Subjects were administered a series of 3 mental tasks: 1) mental arithmetic, 2) public speaking with anger recall, and 3) mirror tracing Blood samples were collected before and after mental stress testing to assess platelet aggregation Platelet Aggregation Aggregation determined with a BIO-DATA 4- channel platelet aggregometer. Variables of interest included the area under the platelet aggregation curve (AUC) and the maximal amplitude of platelet aggregation (%) Aggregation triggered by epinephrine (1, 2, 5, an 10 µM), collagen (1, 2, 5, and 10 µM), adenosine diphosphate (ADP; 1, 2, µM), and each agonist with serotonin (5HT; 10 µM) Endpoints: MSIMI: a decrease in EF of ≥ 8% or a new focal wall motion abnormality induced by mental stress testing Normal left ventricular response (NLVR): No change or an increase in EF, and no focal wall motion abnormalities in response to mental stress testing Mental stress testing resulted in increased platelet aggregation, as measured by the AUC and maximal amplitude, in patients who are susceptible to mental stress induced ischemia Future work should investigate whether or not antiplatelet therapy could be protective against mental stress induced myocardial ischemia in susceptible patients Disclosures: Harrison, RW: None Becker, RC: Honoraria; Bristol-Myers Squibb, Sanofi-Aventis, Boehringer Ingelheim.
