Brief Summary:
This pilot study aims to identify patients at moderate to high risk for peri-procedural (type 4) myocardial infarction or injury after after undergoing an elective coronary intervention (PCI) as measured by high sensitivity troponin T, who might benefit from more potent antiplatelet therapy.

Study Population
Patients with stable or unknown CAD undergoing elective coronary intervention without receiving additional examination, such as biopsy, Ablation or any other procedure that could lead to myocardial injury resulting in elevation of the cardiac Troponin.

  • Elective coronary intervention
  • Minimum age of 18

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Present acute coronary syndrome (ACS)
  • Age under 18
  • Pregnancy
  • Any additional invasive intervention with potential myocardial injury
  • Non ACS conditions responsible for elevation of cardiac troponin, such as acute pulmonary artery embolism, myocarditis or tachycardia.
