Purpose / Aims: The MIG Registry is a collaborative effort between six public hospitals in Melbourne and Geelong. The registry aims to provide reliable medium and long-term results (morbidity and mortality) of coronary interventions across Melbourne hospitals.
Population Captured: Data on all patients undergoing a percutaneous coronary intervention (ie. either an angioplasty or a stent) performed in participating hospitals are collected and entered into a central database.
Outcomes Collected:
  • Mortality – in-hospital, 30 day and longer term with linkage to the National Death Index.
  • In-hospital complications including peri-procedural myocardial infarction, stent thrombosis, urgent coronary artery bypass grafts, and major bleeding readmissions to hospital within 1 month of procedure.
