AIMS: The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) EURObservational Research Programme (EORP) Chronic Ischaemic Cardiovascular Disease Long Term (CICD LT) registry aims to study the clinical profile, treatment modalities, and outcomes of patients diagnosed with CICD in a contemporary environment in order to assess whether these patients at high cardiovascular (CV) risk are treated according to ESC guidelines on prevention or on stable coronary disease and to determine mid- and long-term outcomes and their determinants in this population. METHODS AND RESULTS: Nine thousand one hundred and seventy-four patients over 18 years with documented CICD defined by a history acute coronary syndrome with/without ST elevation, previous coronary revascularization, or stable coronary artery disease were enrolled between 1 May 2015 and 31 July 2018. Individual patient data on clinical profile, biology, and treatment modalities were collected across 154 centres from 20 ESC countries. Two years of follow-up is scheduled in order to determine the following clinical outcomes: all-cause and CV death, all-cause and CV hospitalizations, changes in medications, and quality of life using the EuroQol5D-5L score. CONCLUSION: The CICD LT is an international registry of care and outcomes of patients hospitalized with CICD which will provide insights into the contemporary profile and management of patients with this common disease.
