purpose and methods
Purpose and Methods
  • Eurovision was a prospective observational study conducted in58 European sites to track utilization patterns of bivalirudinin PCI.
  • Outcomes were collected for ischemic events (death, MI, stroke and urgent revascularization), and bleeding in hospital and at 30 days
  • Major bleeding, ACUITY definition (any one of the following): Intracranial, retroperitoneal, or intraocular bleeding, access site hemorrhage requiring radiological or surgical intervention, ≥5 centimeter(cm) diameter hematoma at puncture site, decrease in hemoglobin (Hgb) concentration of ≥4 g/dl without an overt source of bleeding, decrease Hgb concentration of ≥3 g/dl with an overt source of bleeding, re-operation for bleeding, any blood product transfusion
  • Minor bleeding was any bleeding not included in the definition of major bleeding
  • A total of 2018 consecutive bivalirudin-treated patients were included from 58 sites in 5 countries
  • Germany (31.1%)
  • France (28.9%)
  • Italy (19.0%)
  • Austria (17.0%)
  • United Kingdom (4.0%)
  • In-hospital and 30-day outcomes were collected and included: Death, MI, stroke, revascularization, major and minor bleeding, stent thrombosis and thrombocytopenia
distribution of study population
Distribution of study population

Overall, 58% of patients were cardiac marker -positive

N=523 N=315 N=499 N=678

  • Overall, P2Y12 inhibitor preloading occurred in 95% of patients
  • 91% clopidogrel (65% with 600 mg, 33% with 300 mg)
  • 9% prasugrel
  • 45% of patients received other antithrombin therapy prior to PCI and were then switched to bivalirudin
  • Activated clotting time was checked in only 2.8% suggesting operator familiarity with bivalirudin predictable mode of action and treatment effect

  • Overall rate of stent thrombosis 0.3% (6/2018)
outcomes by post pci infusion
Outcomes by post-PCI infusion

Among STEMI patients, 62% received a post-procedural bivalirudin infusion for a median duration of 122 minutes

  • Adaptation of bivalirudin as the foundation for all-comer PCI (including high percentage of STEMI and NSTEMI patients) is associated with excellent ischemic protection and safety,
  • The rates observed in EUROVISION compare favorably to other large existing registry datasets.
