BCIS PCI Datasets – updates and history

PCI Dataset Information

Current Dataset and Version


16th May 2019

To all database PCI operators, database contacts and database software providers

 

Dear colleagues,

I have updated the PCI dataset libraries, to try to capture more recent changes to our armamentarium. These are ONLY library updates, and affect only 4 libraries.  There is no change to the overall structure of the database.

We would hope that most centres will be able to update their library options rapidly, but would hope that all will have done this by the next 6 months at the latest.

The dataset is now named: ‘PCI_Dataset_Standard 5_6_5 version 1-05-2019’ and can be downloaded as an excel file from:

https://www.bcis.org.uk/resources/bcis-ccad-database-resources/datasets-history/

The changes are summarised below:

 

5.09       ECG ischaemia

The following have been added:

  1. CT fractional flow reserve
  2. QFR (Quantitative Flow Ratio or equivalent angiographic analysis of flow)

 

3.17 Drug eluting stents

The following have been added:

  1. Papyrus (Biotronik)
  2. Graft master (Abbott)
  3. Over and Under (ITGI)
  4. BeGraft (Bentley)
  5. Magmaris (Biotronik)
  6. EluNIR (Cordis Cardinal Health)
  7. Xience Alpine (Abbott)
  8. Xience Sierra (Abbott)
  9. Supraflex (SMT)
  10. Supraflex Cruz (SMT)
  11. Supralimus (SMT)

 

3.19 Diagnostic device(s) used during procedure

  1. Pressure wire

Will now be used for any device that assesses a coronary stenosis and requires hyperaemia to be induced. It has been re-named:

  1. Pressure wire (or any other HYPERAEMIC based index of coronary stenosis)

 

The following have been added:

  1. iFR, RFR, dPR (or any other NON HYPERAEMIC index of coronary stenosis)
  2. NIRS (Near infra-red spectroscopy)

 

3.20 Procedural device:

  1. Rotational atherectomy

Will now be used for the legacy device and so be renamed

  1. Rotational atherectomy (Rotablator legacy device)

 

  1. Finecross

Will now be used for both Finecross and ANY other microcather and so has been renamed:

  1. Finecross (or any other microcatheter not in list)

 

The following have been added:

  1. Drug eluting balloon
  2. Shockwave balloon
  3. Coronary sinus occlusion device – PICSO (Miracor)
  4. Rotational atherectomy (Rotapro device)

Please note  that where options have been re-named, the previous and new names will both be accepted

There is no change to the underlying structure of the dataset.

The only thing you need to do is to update your library drop down lists.

Dataset Version 5.6.5 (August 2016)

Sent to all commercial DB vendors and all Database audit contact and PCI database clinical leads:

I have updated the BCIS PCI dataset. The ‘change history’ tab in the spreadsheet gives the details. They are as follows:
1. A text clarification
2. Clarification of an endpoint definition
3. Minor additions to three of the libraries as:

Library update: 3.17 Drug eluting stent – Addition 46. Orsiro (Biotronik)

Library update: 3.21 Athero-thrombus removal device(s) used – Addition: 13. QXT extraction catheter

Library update: 5.10 Drug therapy PreOp – Addition: 10. Cangrelor

There is no change to the underlying structure of the dataset.

The only thing you need to do is to update your library drop down lists.

Dataset Version 5.6.2 To be collected from 1st December 2014

Addition to the library of Drug Eluting Stent names only. No change to the database structure.


29th October 2013
Sent to: All commercial DB vendors, All UK PCI operators, All Database audit contacts

Dataset version 5.6.1 To be collected from 1st January 2014

I am always reluctant to change our dataset, but unfortunately there are compelling reasons to make some small changes. There are 11 additional fields (6.01 to 6.11) and additional options to an existing field.

Eleven additional fields:
6.01: PCI indication for stent thrombosis. It has previously been impossible to identify these cases as they could fall under several options available in the ‘Indication for PCI’ field. This new field will allow us to track this particular indication for PCI for the first time.

6.02: As we move towards international standardisation of definitions, we felt it important to have uniform reporting of bleeding complications. This field aligns us to the Bleeding Academic Research Consortium (BARC) definitions.

6.03 to 6.11: Out Of Hospital Cardiac Arrest. We have only been able to infer this specific patient presentation by using the field ‘need for pre-procedural ventilation’. As out of hospital arrest carries its own very specific high risk features we felt it critical to try to capture some key features of patients presenting in this way for PCI. I hope that the data items selected provide the correct balance between essential detail without too burdensome data entry.

Update to existing fields:
3.24 Circulatory support. New LV support device potion have been added to include: Impella, Lucas device, Autopulse and ECMO

What you need to do
1. The commercial suppliers of PCI databases are all being informed of these modifications so that their systems can be upgraded to remain compliant with the BCIS – NICOR audit collection. I recommend you contact then to make sure changes can be effected in time.

2. The Lotus Notes database will be updated in the near future.

3. If you are using my PCI database (in access), then I will shortly be providing a method to allow you to update your database to a newer version that will incorporate all these changes

Diagnostic Interventional Procedures
The use of FFR, IVUS and OCT (and OFDI etc) when no PCI ensues will be described as an ‘Interventional Diagnostic Procedure’.

An Interventional Diagnostic Procedure is therefore defined as invasive coronary angiography with the use of adjunctive invasive diagnostic equipment such that a coronary device approaches, probes or crosses one or more coronary lesions (including – but not limited to – a pressure wire, intravascular ultrasound and swept laser imaging), before the intention to treat by mechanical revascularisation has been decided. Interventional diagnostic cases should be performed by interventional cardiologists in intervention capable centres.

The definition of a PCI will remain unchanged as:
“A percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is deemed to have taken place if any coronary device approaches, probes or crosses one or more coronary lesions, with the intention of performing a coronary intervention. Usually this device will be a guide wire. The only exception to this will be patients who have an adverse cardiac event (during an attempted PCI) that necessitates procedure termination prior to the introduction of a coronary device. This rare type of case will also be defined as a PCI and therefore this will classify as a complication.”

BCIS will plan to report operator’s total numbers of ‘PCI procedures’ and, separately, total numbers of ‘Interventional Diagnostic Procedures’

In order to do this all ‘Interventional Diagnostic procedures’ should now be entered into the BCIS database. To distinguish these from PCI procedures, the following rules need to be applied:

For an ‘Interventional Diagnostic Procedure’:
Total number of lesions attempted (field 3.11) must = 0
and Total number of vessels attempted (field 3.10) must =0
and ‘Diagnostic device(s) used during procedure (field 3.19) should include one of the interventional diagnostic procedures described
Vessels attempted (field 3.09) should be left empty
(Any adverse in-hospital outcomes should be recorded in the same way as for a PCI procedure)

It is suggested that recording all ‘Interventional Diagnostic Procedures’ should start from Jan 2014, but those wishing to add data retrospectively can do so, and it may be possible to include this in the 2013 data reports to be produced in 2014.

Dear all

Dataset version 5.5.6 to 5.5.7: To be applied by 1st June 2013
No structural change to the database.
The only changes are to update of some of the menu items in the volatile fields, and some clarification of descriptors.

1. Volatile fields
The following additions have been made to the list:
3.17 Drug based stents

31 Synergy (Boston Scientific)
32 Promus premier (Boston Scientific)
33 Biofreedom (Biosensors)
34 Combo (Orbus)
35 Mguard (InspireMD)
36 Xience Pro (Abbott)
37 Absorb BVS (Abbott)

2. Dataset clarification
Minor changes to clarify the meaning of items:
5.09 ECG Ischaemia. Option 3 ‘on perfusion scan’. This should also be selected for other stress imaging such as stress echo and stress cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
3.19 Diagnostic device(s) used during procedure. Option 6 relabelled ‘OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) or similar’. This should be selected for all similar laser swept intracoronary imaging techniques such as optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI).

Attached files:
1. A full history of the dataset changes are documented (Dataset version history)
2. A complete spreadsheet of the new version 5.5.7
(The csv file specification is unchanged)
All these will also be available on the BCIS web site

What you need to do
1. The commercial vendors of databases are all being informed of these modifications.

2. The Lotus Notes database will be updated to include these shortly.

3. If you are using my PCI database, then these changes can be added to the lists by going to the ‘default settings / field lists / database admin’ button on the main switchboard, and then selecting each list to be update in turn and typing in the additions.

Risk Adjusted Funnel Plots and Delays Report

December 2008

The risk adjusted outcome cummulative funnel plot generator for PCI is now ready to be used. The report works in the same way as the generation of aggregate data reports, and the time delays reports generator. Via the Lotus Notes program in BCIS section, look under the list of reports on the left of the page. Click on ‘ Funnel Plot’. Work your way through the steps, which represent a series of choices regarding the variables and parameters you would like to use to analyse your data .

The report will generate an analysis in the form of a password protected excel spreadsheet. The predicted and observed MACCE are listed for each PCI procedure using your reported CCAD data and the NQWIP model. A cummulative funnel plot is generated with 2 and 3 sigma lines. You will find an explanation of this plot in the last few slides (number 156 to 177) of my BCIS audit presentation of 2007 data at BCIS Audit Returns 2007.

The latest version of the delays report generator for PCI is now ready to be used. The report works in the same way as the generation of aggregate data reports. Via the Lotus Notes program in BCIS section, look under the list of reports on the left of the page. Click on ‘Delay reports v.6’ This will bring up the following dialogue (please see attachment for dialogue).

Work your way through the 7 steps, which represent a series of choices regarding the variables and parameters you would like to use to analyse your data.

The report will generate an analysis in the form of a password protected excel spreadsheet. The worksheets include a measure of your data completeness for the key fields, and explanation of how each field is calculated, and overall analysis of various time intervals in the treatment of patients being treated for acute coronary syndromes. The report will aslo create statistical process control charts allowing you to see (for example) each individual door to balloon time delay for each patient treated for STEMI. These charts can be split to look at night versus day time delays.

I hope you find this is helpful. If you spot any errors in our programming please do not hesitate to contact me.
