Abstract 13131: The Priority of Coronary Arteriography and Therapeutic Hypothermia After Return of Spontaneous Circulation in Patients With Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest. the Result of Sos-kanto 2012 Study
Aim: To evaluate the priority of coronary angiography (CAG) and therapeutic hypothermia therapy (TH) after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA).
Patients and Methods: SOS-KANTO 2012 study is a prospective, multicenter (69 emergency hospitals) and observational study and includes 16,452 patients with OHCA. Among the cases with ROSC in that study, we intended for patients treated with both CAG and TH within 24 hours after arrival. Those patients were divided into two groups; patients in whom TH was firstly performed (TH group), and the others in whom CAG was firstly done (CAG group). We statistically compared the prognosis between the two groups. SPSS Statistics 22 (IBM, Tokyo, Japan) was used for the statistical analysis. Statistical significance was assumed to be present at a p value of less than 0.05.
Result: 233 patients were applied in this study. There were 86 patients in the TH group (M/F: 74/12, mean age; 60.0±15.2 y/o) and 147 in the CAG group (M/F: 126/21, mean age: 63.4±11.1 y/o) respectively, and no significant differences were found in the mean age and M/F ratio between the two groups. The overall performance categories (OPC) one month after ROSC in the both groups were as follows; in the TH group, OPC1: 21 (24.4%), OPC2: 3 (3.5%), OPC3: 7 (8.1%), OPC4: 8 (9.3%), OPC5: 43 (50.0%), unknown: 4 (4.7%), and in the CAG group, OPC1: 38 (25.9%), OPC2: 13 (8.8%), OPC3: 15 (10.2%), OPC4: 18 (12.2%), OPC5: 57 (38.8%), unknown: 6 (4.1%). There were no significant differences in the prognosis one month after ROSC between the two groups.
Conclusion: The results which of TH and CAG you give priority to over do not affect the prognosis in patients with OHCA.
