2 2 Prevent The Grave Event …….. IS IT MISSION IMPOSSIBLE ?? Highlights from AHA/ACC Guidelines for Secondary Prevention for Patients with Coronary and Other Atherosclerotic Vascular Disease: 2006 Update ELSayed M.Farag ( MSc.Cardiology)

3 3 Secondary Prevention Definition Therapy to reduce recurrent cardiovascular events and decrease cardiovascular mortality in patients with established atherosclerotic vascular disease Patients covered include those with established coronary and other atherosclerotic vascular disease, including peripheral arterial disease, atherosclerotic aortic disease and carotid artery disease

4 4 Components of Secondary Prevention Cigarette smoking cessation Blood pressure control Lipid management to goal Physical activity Weight management to goal Diabetes management to goal Antiplatelet agents / anticoagulants Renin angiotensin aldosterone system blockers Beta blockers Influenza vaccination

5 5 Goal: Complete Cessation and No Exposure to Environmental Tobacco Smoke Cigarette Smoking Recommendations Ask about tobacco use status at every visit. Advise every tobacco user to quit. Assess the tobacco user’s willingness to quit. Assist by counseling and developing a plan for quitting. Arrange follow-up, referral to special programs, or pharmacotherapy (including nicotine replacement and bupropion. Urge avoidance of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke at work and home.

13 13 Lipid Management Goal LDL-C should be less than 100 mg/dL Further reduction to LDL-C to < 70 mg/dL is reasonable *Non-HDL-C = total cholesterol minus HDL-C If TG >200 mg/dL, non-HDL-C should be < 130 mg/dL*

14 14 Risk CategoryLDL-C and non- HDL-C Goal Initiate TLC Consider Drug Therapy High risk: CHD or CHD risk equivalents (10-year risk >20%) and <100 mg/dL if TG > 200 mg/dL, non-HDL-C should be < 130 mg/dL  100 mg/dL >100 mg/dL (<100 mg/dL: consider drug options) Very high risk: ACS or established CHD plus: multiple major risk factors (especially diabetes) or severe and poorly controlled risk factors <70 mg/dL, non-HDL-C < 100 mg/dL All patients>100 mg/dL (<100 mg/dL: consider drug options) Grundy, S. et al. Circulation 2004;110: Lipid Management Goals: NCEP

15 15 Lipid Management Recommendations Start dietary therapy (<7% of total calories as saturated fat and <200 mg/d cholesterol) Adding plant stanol/sterols (2 gm/day) and viscous fiber (>10 mg/day) will further lower LDL Promote daily physical activity and weight management. Encourage increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids in fish or 1 g/day omega-3 fatty acids in capsule form for risk reduction. For all patients

16 16 *Trans fatty acids also raise LDL-C and should be kept at a low intake. Note: Regarding total calories, balance energy intake and expenditure to maintain desirable body weight. <200 mg/dCholesterol ~15% of total caloriesProtein 20 – 30 g/dFiber 50% – 60% of total caloriesCarbohydrate (esp. complex.carbs) 25% – 35% of total caloriesTotal fat Up to 20% of total caloriesMonounsaturated fat Up to 10% of total caloriesPolyunsaturated fat <7% of total caloriesSaturated fat* Recommended IntakeNutrient Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults.

17 17 Lipid Management Recommendations If baseline LDL-C > 100 mg/dL, initiate LDL-lowering drug therapy If on-treatment LDL-C > 100 mg/dL, intensify LDL- lowering drug therapy (may require LDL lowering drug combination) If baseline is LDL-C 70 to 100 mg/dL, it is reasonable to treat to LDL < 70 mg/dL Assess fasting lipid profile in all patients, and within 24 hours of hospitalization for those with an acute event. For patients hospitalized, initiate lipid-lowering medication as recommended below prior to discharge according to the following schedule: When LDL lowering medications are used, obtain at least a 30-40% reduction in LDL-C levels.

18 18 Lipid Management Recommendations If TG are mg/dL, non-HDL-C should be < 130 mg/dL Further reduction of non-HDL to < 100 mg/dL is reasonable Therapeutic options to reduce non-HDL-C: More intense LDL-C lowering therapy I (B) or Niacin (after LDL-C lowering therapy) IIa (B) or Fibrate (after LDL-C lowering therapy) IIa (B) If TG are > 500 mg/dL, therapeutic options to prevent pancreatitis are fibrate or niacin before LDL lowering therapy; and treat LDL-C to goal after TG-lowering therapy. Achieve non-HDL-C < 130 mg/dL, if possible

23 23 Physical Activity Recommendations Assess risk with a physical activity history and/or an exercise test, to guide prescription Encourage 30 to 60 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity such as brisk walking, on most, preferably all, days of the week, supplemented by an increase in daily lifestyle activities Advise medically supervised programs for high-risk patients (e.g. recent acute coronary syndrome or revascularization, HF) Goal: 30 minutes 7 days/week, minimum 5 days/week

24 24 Observational study of self-reported physical activity in 772 men with established coronary heart disease Light or moderate exercise is associated with lower risk Wannamethee SG et al. Circulation 2000;102: Exercise Evidence: Mortality Risk

25 25 Weight Management Recommendations Goal: BMI 18.5 to 24.9 kg/m2 Waist Circumference: Men: < 40 inches Women: < 35 inches Assess BMI and/or waist circumference on each visit and consistently encourage weight maintenance/ reduction through an appropriate balance of physical activity, caloric intake, and formal behavioral programs when indicated. If waist circumference (measured at the iliac crest) >35 inches in women and >40 inches in men initiate lifestyle changes and consider treatment strategies for metabolic syndrome as indicated. The initial goal of weight loss therapy should be to reduce body weight by approximately 10 percent from baseline. With success, further weight loss can be attempted if indicated. *BMI is calculated as the weight in kilograms divided by the body surface area in meters 2. Overweight state is defined by BMI=25-30 kg/m2. Obesity is defined by a BMI >30 kg/m2.

29 29 Diabetes Mellitus Recommendations Goal: Hb A1c < 7% Lifestyle and pharmacotherapy to achieve near normal HbA1C (<7%). Vigorous modification of other risk factors (e.g., physical activity, weight management, blood pressure control, and cholesterol management as recommended). Coordinate diabetic care with patient’s primary care physician or endocrinologist. ) HbA1c = Glycosylated hemoglobin

30 30 LET US FLOW SMOOTHLY Antiplatelet Agents / Anticoagulation Recommendations

31 31 Aspirin Recommendations Start and continue indefinitely aspirin 75 to 162 mg/d in all patients unless contraindicated For patients undergoing CABG, aspirin (100 to 325 mg/d) should be started within 48 hours after surgery to reduce saphenous vein graft closure Post-PCI-stented patients should receive 325 mg per day of aspirin for 1 month for bare metal stent, 3 months for sirolimus-eluting stent and 6 months for paclitaxel-eluting stent

32 32 Start and continue clopidogrel 75 mg/d in combination with aspirin for post ACS or post PCI with stent placement patients for up to 12 months for post PCI-stented patients >1 month for bare metal stent, >3 months for sirolimus-eluting stent >6 months for paclitaxel-eluting stent * Clopidogrel is generally given preference over Ticlopidine because of a superior safety profile Clopidogrel Recommendations

33 33 Anticoagulation Recommendations Manage warfarin to international normalized ratio 2.0 to 3.0 for paroxysmal or chronic atrial fibrillation or flutter, and in post-MI patients when clinically indicated (e.g., atrial fibrillation, LV thrombus.) Use of warfarin in conjunction with aspirin and/or clopidogrel is associated with increased risk of bleeding and should be monitored closely
