Background Patients with myocardial infarction and concomitant COPD are at increased risk of poor clinical outcomes, including death, as compared to patients without COPD. Aim To investigate and compare the severity of the clinical presentation of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and of the short-(7 days) and long-term-(end of follow up) mortality in COPD patients treated with inhaled corticosteroids (ICS)/long-acting bronchodilator (LABD) - either long-acting beta2 agonist (LABA) or long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) - vs. any other inhaled treatments. Methods Data from the REAL (Registro Angioplastiche dell'Emilia-Romagna) Registry were obtained from a large prospective study population of 11,118 patients admitted to hospital for STEMI. Results From January 2003 to June 2009 we identified 2032 COPD patients admitted to hospital for STEMI. Eight hundred and twenty (40%) COPD patients were on ICS/LABD treatment (of which 55% on ICS/LABA) prior to admission. After adjustment for potential confounding factors, ICS/LABD treatment before STEMI was an independent predictor of reduced risk of pulmonary oedema and cardiogenic shock (OR 0.5, 95%CI 0.3–0.72, p < 0.01; OR 0.7, 95%CI 0.4–0.9, p = 0.03, respectively). ICS/LABD treatment was associated to reduced 7-days mortality (OR 0.54, 95%CI 0.29–0.98, p = 0.045) compared to other inhaled regimens. ICS/LABD-treated did not affect long-term (median 4 years) mortality. After hospital discharge, the proportion of ICS/LABD treated patients decreased significantly at 6 months and afterwards after the STEMI episode. Conclusion Our data provide preliminary evidence that in COPD patients ICS/LABD treatment reduces the severity of STEMI acute-phase clinical manifestations compared to other inhaled treatments.

Abstract

Background Patients with myocardial infarction and concomitant COPD are at increased risk of poor clinical outcomes, including death, as compared to patients without COPD. Aim To investigate and compare the severity of the clinical presentation of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and of the short-(7 days) and long-term-(end of follow up) mortality in COPD patients treated with inhaled corticosteroids (ICS)/long-acting bronchodilator (LABD) - either long-acting beta2 agonist (LABA) or long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) - vs. any other inhaled treatments. Methods Data from the REAL (Registro Angioplastiche dell'Emilia-Romagna) Registry were obtained from a large prospective study population of 11,118 patients admitted to hospital for STEMI. Results From January 2003 to June 2009 we identified 2032 COPD patients admitted to hospital for STEMI. Eight hundred and twenty (40%) COPD patients were on ICS/LABD treatment (of which 55% on ICS/LABA) prior to admission. After adjustment for potential confounding factors, ICS/LABD treatment before STEMI was an independent predictor of reduced risk of pulmonary oedema and cardiogenic shock (OR 0.5, 95%CI 0.3–0.72, p < 0.01; OR 0.7, 95%CI 0.4–0.9, p = 0.03, respectively). ICS/LABD treatment was associated to reduced 7-days mortality (OR 0.54, 95%CI 0.29–0.98, p = 0.045) compared to other inhaled regimens. ICS/LABD-treated did not affect long-term (median 4 years) mortality. After hospital discharge, the proportion of ICS/LABD treated patients decreased significantly at 6 months and afterwards after the STEMI episode. Conclusion Our data provide preliminary evidence that in COPD patients ICS/LABD treatment reduces the severity of STEMI acute-phase clinical manifestations compared to other inhaled treatments.
