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 onto a central database.
Outcomes collected:
  • Mortality – in-hospital, 30 day, 12 month and longer term with linkage to the National Death Index
  • In-hospital complications including periprocedural myocardial infarction, stent thrombosis, urgent coronary artery bypass grafts, and major bleeding readmissions to hospital within 12 months of procedure
Funding source: Pharmaceutical and device companies
