Abstract

The objective of the study is to evaluate the humanistic outcomes and cost outcomes among patients receiving percutaneous coronary intervention in a tertiary care setup. The quality of life studies data was collected from the patients at Kasturba Hospital,Manipal, India, a tertiary care hospital. The instrument to measure health status was EQ-5D-5L involving English and Kannada version. The pharmacoeconomic data was computed from data record sheets and data pertaining to socio-demographic information along with cost of treatment and clinical outcomes. The model of the study was prospective and observational, evaluation of bare metal stents and drug eluting stents used during percutaneous coronary intervention for the period of nine months. Data pertaining to cost outcomes of the subjects included in the study are derived from case record files of outpatients and inpatients of Cardiology Department. The mean age of patients for bare metal stent group was 57.8 ± 9.3 years and for drug eluting stent group was 60.7 ±10.1 years. Repeated measures ANOVA of utility scores and VAS scores showed significant variation in both groups over a period of nine month follow-up. Mann-Whitney test significance was found to be <0.001 for total cost involved in percutaneous coronary intervention among both the groups. The study was able to provide insight in to the benefit received by the patients with drug eluting stents in terms of humanistic outcomes and the cost to be paid for the same at a tertiary care setup in India.
