STEMI and multivessels coronary artery stenosis treatment, management and prognosis are by few literature data. Therefore we enrolled real world patients admitted for STEMI and associated to multi vessels coronary disease. these patients were divided in diabetics vs. non diabetics. Then these diabetics were divided in incretin users (6 months incerti treatment before study enrollment) vs. never incretin users. In these patients we studied all cause mortality, cardiac mortality, and major adverse cardiac events at 12 months follow up.
This study will retrospectively review and compare clinical outcomes between left atrial appendage occlusion with dual antiplatelet therapy versus conventional antithrombotic therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing drug-eluting stent implantation.
is to test the hypotheses that epicardial adipose tissue can be a marker of severity of coronary artery disease in myocardial infarction patients
This study aims to demonstrate that the BioFreedom™ Cobalt Chromium Drug Coated Stent is non-inferior to the market authorized BioFreedom™ Stainless Steel Stent with respective to efficacy and shows a similar safety profile.
Cardiovascular rehabilitation (CVR) has major beneficial effects by improving physical capacity, accelerating return to activities and reinsertion and reducing mortality. It associates reconditioning to effort and therapeutic education for the optimal control of " risk factors ". It corresponds to a global approach to patients, thus counterbalancing the tendency to hyperspecialise in medicine. However, because of the lack of specialised centres, only a small proportion of patients (≈30%) are able to benefit. Numerical tools used in e-health, the deployment of the Internet and certain " connected " devices may provide alternatives outside hospital, by enabling the follow-up of patients and their physiological parameters (heart rate, blood pressure, weigh, physical activity…), and the adaptation - using an interactive web platform - of the physical activity programme, nutrition, compliance with medication and weaning from smoking. This project proposes to evaluate the effects of a so-called " connected " CVR programme, and to show its non-inferiority compared with a conventional CVR.
Femoral artery approach to perform coronary procedures is considered the standard technique for vascular access due to optimal catheter control, lower thromboembolic complications and immediate access due to the large diameter of the artery. Trans-radial approach has been shown to reduce major bleeding complications, vascular complications related to the site of puncture, including death from all causes, and to prevent post-procedure limb rest, greater comfort for patients, immediate ambulation, early discharge and reduction of costs. Previous studies have shown that intravenous, topical and intraarterial use of nitroglycerin produces vasodilation of the radial artery. Extravascular (subcutaneous) administration of nitroglycerin is extremely effective in restoring the radial pulse, and allows adequate cannulation.
Background: Cardiac rehabilitation is indicated for ischemic heart disease patients; the program content of which is well described in both European and American guidelines. In contrast, literature on cardiac rehabilitation program content and efficacy in the Asian population is sparse. Methods: BeSingCardioRehab will be an intercontinental, retrospective cohort study conducted in two cardiac rehabilitation referral centers in Belgium and Singapore. The first aim is to compare the impact of phase II center-based cardiac rehabilitation on Major Adverse Cardiac Events for ischemic heart disease patients between Europe (i.e. Belgian) and Asia (i.e. Singaporean) in the long-term. The second objective is to compare the efficacy of phase II cardiac rehabilitation on short-term morbidity (assessed with the validated SMART Risk Score) between index European and Asian ischemic heart disease patients. The level of compliance of the Belgian and Singaporean cardiac rehabilitation programs to European guidelines standards will also be evaluated. Hypotheses BeSingCardiorehab will be one of the first studies assessing cardiac rehabilitation in Asia. Based on the BeSingCardioRehab study results, phase II center-based cardiac rehabilitation programs, can/will be adapted in order to improve program content and outcomes.
This is a prospective, non-randomized, open label, multi-center study including 60 patients with symptomatic ischemic heart disease with 70%-100% coronary artery stenoses and occlusions enrolled and treated in this investigational device study.
In patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), 40-60% have multi-vessel disease with an increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Although it is not recommended to revascularize noninfarct lesions during the acute intervention, recent investigations suggest the opposite and show improved outcome after direct revascularization of noninfarct lesions. It is undesirable to risk procedure-related complications by treating noninfarct lesions without impaired flow. It is currently unknown whether pressure guided revascularization of noninfarct lesions in the acute phase improves outcome compared to the current guidelines. The iMODERN trial aims to compare an iFR-guided intervention of noninfarct lesions during the acute intervention with a deferred stress perfusion CMR-guided strategy during the outpatient follow-up, to determine the optimal therapeutic approach for STEMI patients with multivessel lesions.
The coronary images of selective angiography and optical coherence tomography with FFR(Fractional Flow Reserve) values of the intermediate lesions (50-70% stenosis) will be prospectively registered.
