Study design: The proposed randomized controlled trial of the use of CCS will be targeted to 40- to 70-year-old first-degree relatives of patients with CAD onset <60 years old or second-degree relatives of patients with onset <50 years old. Control patients will undergo standard risk scoring and be blinded to CCS results. In the intervention group, primary prevention in patients undergoing CCS will be informed by this score. At 3 years, effectiveness will be assessed on change in plaque volume at computed tomography coronary angiography, the extent of which has been strongly linked to outcome.
Summary: The CAUGHT-CAD trial will provide evidence to inform the guidelines regarding the place of CCS in decision making regarding primary prevention of patients with a family history of premature disease.
