Abstract

To evaluate the incidence and causes of rehospitalization within 1-year after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in a country where the National Health Service provides universal tax-supported health care, guaranteeing residents free hospital access. Between January 2010 and September 2014, 17,111 patients were treated with PCI in two University Hospitals in Western Denmark. Patients who were readmitted within 1-year after PCI were identified. Overall 1-year readmission rate was 50.4%. The cause was angina/myocardial infarction (MI) in 4,282 patients (49.7%), and other reasons in 4,334 (50.3%). Predictors for angina/MI-related readmissions were female gender (odds ratio (OR) 1.15;95% confidence interval (CI) 1.07-1.25), diabetes (OR 1.14;95% CI 1.04-1.26), age (per 10-year increase) (OR 0.86;95% CI 0.83-0.88), and indication for index PCI (stable angina pectoris as reference): ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (OR 1.34;95% CI 1.23-1.47) and non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (OR 1.18;95% CI 1.08-1.29). Predictors for other readmissions were female gender (OR 1.09;95% CI 1.01-1.18), diabetes (OR 1.29;95% CI 1.18-1.42), age (OR 1.30;95% CI 1.26-1.34) and Charlson Comorbidity Index ≥ 3 (OR 3.03;95% CI 2.71-3.27) Conclusions: In an unselected patient cohort treated with PCI, half of the patients were rehospitalized within 1-year, illuminating the impact of comorbidity in patients with ischemic heart disease.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 December 2018.
All research outputs
#4,129,748
of 17,475,439 outputs
Outputs from EuroIntervention
#967
of 2,048 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#96,328
of 375,560 outputs
Outputs of similar age from EuroIntervention
#65
of 92 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,475,439 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 76th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,048 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.9. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 52% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 375,560 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 74% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 92 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
