MYOCARDIAL SILENT INFARCTIONS AND FIBROSIS IN FAMILIAL HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA (CHOLCOEUR)


Brief description of study

Patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) at high cardiovascular risk may suffer from silent micro-infarctions (MI) before clinical coronary heart disease manifestations because of the lifetime exposure to elevated serum LDL-cholesterol levels. The study aims to demonstrate the higher prevalence of silent myocardial infarction in a population of asymptomatic patients with familial hypercholesterolemia at high cardiovascular risk in comparison to control patients using Cardiac Magnetic Resonance sequences of delayed gadolinium enhancement.

Detailed Study Description

To demonstrate the higher prevalence of silent myocardial infarction in a population of asymptomatic patients with familial hypercholesterolemia at high cardiovascular risk in comparison to control patients, the protocol is the following: - to enroll 75 patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) - to enroll 35 subjects without FH (control group) - for each subject, to collect data from his medical file (blood test results) and to perform a cardiac and aortic MRI in order to evaluate the micro-infarction proportion. The study will be performed according to GCPs and with respect with french laws.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT02517944
