Aims
Increased cancer risk has been reported in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We investigated geographic differences in this risk.


Methods and Results
We enrolled 586 ACS patients admitted to hospitals in three provinces in the Veneto region of Italy in this prospective study. Patient's residency were classified into three urban and three rural areas.
All (except for 3) patients completed the follow-up (22 years or death) and 54% were living in rural areas. Sixteen patients had pre-existing malignancy, and 106 developed the disease during follow-up. Cancer prevalence was 17% and 24% (p=0.05) and incidence of malignancy 16 and 21/1000 person-years for urban and rural areas, respectively. In unadjusted logistic regression analysis, cancer risk increased from urban to rural areas (odds ratio [OR] 3.4;95% confidence interval [CI] 1.7-7.1; p=0.001), with little change from north to south provinces (OR 1.5;95% CI 1.0-2.2; p=0.06). Yet, we found a strong positive interaction between urban-rural areas and provinces (OR 2.1;95% CI 1.2-3.5; p=0.003). These results kept true in the fully adjusted model. Unadjusted Cox regression analysis revealed increasing hazards ratios (HRs) for malignancy onset from urban to rural areas (HR 3.0;95% CI 1.5-6.2; p=0.02), but not among provinces (HR 1.3;95% CI 1.0-2.0; p=0.14). Also, we found a strong positive interaction between geographic areas (HR 2.1;95% CI 1.3-3.5; p=0.002), even with a fully adjusted model.


Conclusion
The results in unselected real-world patients demonstrate a significant geographic difference in malignancy risk in ACS patients, with the highest risk in the north-rural area.

Welcome

In 1992, a small group of medical researchers and other participants embarked on an project to investigate new clinical factors for heart disease, studying patients with acute coronary syndrome and following them for many years. Today, the observations on the long-term survival after acute coronary syndrome are internationally acknowledged. Main results appears on the most important cardiovascular texts across the world. The study is called “the ABC heart disease study”.
Nel 1992, un piccolo gruppo di medici ricercatori ed altri operatori sanitari, iniziarono un progetto per studiare nuovi fattori clinici della malattia cardiaca, studiando pazienti con sindrome coronarica acuta e seguendoli per molti anni. Oggi, ciò che è stato osservato sulla sopravvivenza a lungo temine dopo sindrome coronarica acuta è riconosciuto a livello internazionale. I principali risultati appaiono sui maggiori testi di medicina cardiovascolare in tutto il mondo. Questo progetto è stato chiamato “the ABC heart disease study”.

Mission

The Mission of the ABC Study on Heart Disease Project is to promote the knowledge on heart disease chiefly based on the long-term follow up of the patients. And to promote citizen health supporting preventive, social, and sport activities.
