| Long-Term Care of Myocardial Infarction Patients in Germany - First Results from the GULLIVE-R Project

First results introduced during the 88th annual meeting of the DGK in Mannheim by

Prof. Uwe Zeymer, Chairman of the Foundation Institute for Myocardial Infarction Research and Principal Investigator of the GULLIVE-R study.


The GULLIVE-R study is a typical healthcare research project and is the first large, dedicated project of the new DGK Center for Cardiac Care Research. The study organization and management were carried out jointly by BNK Service GmbH and the Institute for Myocardial Infarction Research Ludwigshafen.

In comparison to existing studies, which only investigated the healthcare status in the first 12 months after a myocardial infarction, the German Society of Cardiology (DGK) will investigate the long-term care of myocardial infarction patients in Germany in the GULLIVE-R project. For the first time, risk assessments by physicians and patients will be recorded. The GULLIVE-R study includes patients who have had a myocardial infarction in the past in order to collect data on the period from 7 to 21 months after the infarction. It is hoped that this information will help improve the care of myocardial infarction patients in the future.

Between July 2019 and June 2021, 2,503 patients from 150 sites were enrolled in the registry. Results of patient follow-up six months after inclusion, were presented by Professor Zeymer at the press conference of the 88th Annual Meeting of German Cardiology on April 20, 2022.
