CARES "Coronary Angiography Registry and Evaluation in Saudi Arabia"  is a national medical registry of coronary angiography and PCI in all major geographical regions of Saudi Arabia, with a main goal to assess the prevalence of significant CAD in

all patients that get referred for coronary angiogram and determine its indications, in addition to determining the short term and long term clinical outcome and complications of PCI.

The study will require filling an electronic Case Report Form (CRF) through this web-site over a 1-year period as the starter phase.

Each PCI-patient will be subsequently followed up clinically up to 3 years for clinical outcomes and complications of the PCI procedure.

  Patient Care

Information from registries is increasingly used to evaluate the process of care and patient outcomes.

Data collection on patients undergoing cardiac procedures is essential to improve the quality of patient care and the efficient use of resources in cardiology practice.

Accordingly, clinical data related to patient care and outcome before and after these procedures are collected in many cardiology units worldwide.

Preliminary data from the Saudi Project for Assessment of Coronary Events (SPACE) Registry in patients admitted with acute coronary syndrome suggests that the rate of coronary angiogram is 63%, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is 40%, with drug-eluting stents use of more than 90%. Thus, the need of CARES

comprehensive database as a well-advanced electronic registry is established as unsurpassed quality measurement tool for our medical sector procedures as well as a professional evaluation of our patient care & outcomes.

Our objectives

►To create a standard coronary angiography and PCI database tool for continuous quality measurement that will be useful to both country-wide studies and individual hospitals  seeking to improve the quality of care & allow standard comparisons with local and national practice patterns .

►To evaluate practice trends in the use of various PCI technologies, such as drug-eluting stents, IntraVascular UltraSound (IVUS), vascular closure devices .. etc.

►To foster collaborative interaction with other cardiovascular outcome assessment projects. 

►Develop hypotheses for future research sub-studies. Read more

Mission Statement

“Assessment of current indications, strategies, clinical outcomes, and complications of coronary angiography and PCI in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia”

Our Vision


The long term vision for CARES is to become part of the routine coronary angiogram reporting system in the most - and hopefully all-

Cath.Labs of the kingdom so as to become a "standard of care", and thus connecting them under the leadership of SACIG group & the auspices of Saudi Heart Association. 

Organization Structure

Several individual entities are integrated in CARES registry & represented by the Principal Coordinating Center, Steering Committee, the Satellite Site Principal Investigators, and Research Assistants. The Principal Coordinating Center is chaired by

Dr. Khalid F. AlHabib


The principal investigator of CARES & SPACE Registries,  Assistant Professor of Medicine and Head of Cardiology Dept. at King Fahad Cardiac Center, King Khalid University Hospital and King Saud university. Riyadh - Saudi Arabia

Ethical considerations

An ethics approval letter will be obtained from the ethics committee of each individual participated hospital. As this is a registry, there is no consent form to be collected from each individual patient in this registry for the reason that  Individuals’ names & identities are un-identified designed to be encrypted during the whole study period starting from data entry & ending by the publications to be raised from this registry.
