The rationale of MIDA trial is to determine efficacy and tolerability of ranolazine molecule among Pakistan population and obtain firsthand knowledge about the molecule ranolazine.
Approximately 5 to 8% of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions requires chronic anticoagulant therapy due to atrial fibrillation or other clinical entities. There are many possible different combinations of the antithrombotic therapy after stent implantation in these patients. Aim of this observational study is to evaluate the real world antithrombotic treatment in patients requiring anticoagulant therapy undergoing stent implantation and to compare the clinical outcome of patients treated with new oral anticoagulant drugs compared to warfarin. The study is prospective, performed in different Italian hospitals and aimed to enroll 1080 patients with a 1 year follow up
This study evaluates the addition of heparin to a 2-week cycle of physical rehabilitation in the treatment of refractory angina. Half of the patients will undergo heparin-primed physical rehabilitation, while the other half will undergo only physical rehabilitation.
Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is strongly recommended for patients with coronary heart disease. However, patient enrollment and completion of cardiac rehabilitation is low. This study will examine if a mobile phone intervention that uses a text messaging program can successfully promote participation in cardiac rehabilitation.
The purpose of this study is to Evaluate the Safety of DILATREND SR Cap. in Korean Patients with Essential hypertension, Chronic stable angina and Congestive heart failure for 52 weeks.
MYDA-MI study is a randomized, placebo controlled, double blind study performed in San Filippo Neri Hospital, Roma, Italy. The planned study duration is 18 months. The objectives are to assess the effects of pre-treatment with probiotic Ecoviesel on the incidence and magnitude of peri-procedural myocardial damage caused by coronary angioplasty in stable patients. 250 patients with chronic stable angina scheduled for a coronary angiography and possible ad hoc angioplasty will be randomized to receive pre-treatment with Ecoviesel sachets (each sachet contains 200 billions bacteria) or Placebo. The pre-treatment dosage will be 4 sachets of probiotic Ecoviesel or placebo for at least 2 weeks before the planned procedure. In patients undergoing angioplasty the same treatment will be continued for 4 weeks after PCI with secondary outcome measures performed at the end of this second stage.
The guideline-recommended standard of care for patients who have experienced a heart attack, heart failure, or other coronary event or procedure is exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (CR). Despite proven benefits, traditional CR is severely underutilized. Moreover, what is typically lacking from traditional CR programs is effective psychosocial risk management. This represents a critical gap in care given the well-documented psychosocial needs of this patient population.The objective of this feasibility study is to conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT) of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) versus usual care in CR-eligible cardiac patients. Randomization will be stratified within two strata based on participation in CR (yes/no) among CR-eligible patients. The primary goals of this pilot study are to: 1) obtain estimates of treatment effects and variability; 2) evaluate recruitment and retention strategies; and 3) examine the safety of the MBSR protocol in CR-eligible patients.
The purpose of this study is to collect long term data of the Neovasc Reducer System in subjects with refractory angina pectoris.
The first and foremost manifestation of ischemic heart disease (IHD) is angina. At a global level, patients with chronic angina are at risk of poor vital status and deconditioning. Medical therapy and coronary revascularization using coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) can effectively relieve angina . In spite of all the available treatment options, the assessment of angina remains a challenge. Angina has a cyclical pattern and will naturally worsen and improve as days go by. Likewise, angina can be significantly biased by the placebo effect. Clinically angina is most frequently quantified with the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) classes system. In research protocols, angina is often quantified with health-related quality of life questionnaires and diaries. None of the tool available accounts for an important phenomenon called ischemic threshold adaptation, which could be defined as a limitation of their activity level under the ischemic level, which will translate into fewer angina episodes and a seemingly stable condition. Better clinical assessment tools that take into consideration the ischemic threshold adaption are needed. Despite increased interest in wearable biometrics clothing in medicine, no prospective study has documented their utility to assess angina and to monitor the rehabilitation in cardiac patients. The Hexoskin™ is a biometric vest that can collect physiological data from individuals in their natural daily living environment. Currently, the use of biometric clothing is confined to a niche exploited exclusively by health enthusiasts, athletes or astronauts. As we enter this new age of virtual healthcare, tools like wearable biometrics could represent a giant leap forward in assisting healthcare professionals and patients. This will translate a better assessment of their health status, will allow physicians to target the right treatment strategy, ultimately improving case-selection and outcomes. Our objective is to prospectively validate the wearable biometrics clothing Hexoskin™ against established standards used to assess chronic stable angina. In addition, the investigators want to derive a novel vitality index from the data generated by this device that will subsequently be used to propose a new angina classification system that will account for ischemic threshold adaptation. Moreover, the investigators want to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Hexoskin monitor patients undergoing home-based cardiac rehabilitation.
Anti-anginal drugs relieve ischemia and symptoms by reducing myocardial oxygen demand by reducing heart rate and or contractility (beta-blockers, phenylalkylamine and benzothiazepineate classes of calcium antagonists) or vasodilatation of the venous system (fall in pre-load) and coronary vessels. Late sodium channels remain open for longer in the presence of myocardial ischaemia. Ranolazine, a novel anti-anginal agent, acts by inhibiting the inward late inward sodium current (INaL), reducing intracellular sodium accumulation and consequently intracellular calcium overload via the sodium/calcium exchanger. It is currently thought that this reduction in intracellular calcium reduces diastolic myocardial stiffness and therefore compression of the small coronary vessels. There is considerable animal data to support this theory. There are good theoretical reasons to postulate that patients with chronically occluded vessels may derive less benefit from conventional anti-anginal agents, particularly vasodilators. The ischemic myocardium, subtended by the occluded vessel, will already be subject to significant concentrations of paracrine vasodilators such as adenosine. Ranolazine, therefore, may on the basis of its mechanism of action, provide greater relief of ischemia in such patients than conventional anti-anginal agents.
