To evaluate the ability to trace iron oxide-labeled mesenchymal stromal cells with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after NOGA-guided injection therapy into the myocardium in patients with ischemic heart disease.
More recently a polymer-free drug eluting stent (Amphilimus eluting stent) has shown to have a superiority in terms of efficacy and safety if compared with stable polymer drug eluting stent when used in diabetic patients. However, to date there are no direct comparisons of these two type of drug eluting stents.
P5.fi study - P4 together with a fifth 'P' and '.fi' for population health Finally Implemented in Finland - studies the value of returning genetic and metabolomic risk information in two diseases (coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes) and one feature (venous thromboembolism). The hypothesis of the study is that 1) combining genetic and metabolic risk with traditional risk factors adds value to the personal risk assessment of these diseases, 2) such risk information can be provided to individuals using a web based user portal in an easily understandable and useful format, and 3) receiving genetic and metabolomic risk information has an effect on the health of the study participants. The study is a continuation of FinHealth 2017 -study, which involved more than 7,000 Finns from around the country. The participants of FinHealth were invited to participate in P5.fi -study. The new research utilises information, samples, and measurements obtained in the FinHealth Study. Prospective clinical significance of selected genetic and metabolomic risk scores will be studied in 30.000 Finnish individuals. The study will analyze the genetic and metabolomic profile of the P5.fi participants and develop and test a protocol for returning them health related risk information. The impact of the intervention will by followed up by questionnaires and national health registers for five years.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical safety and effectiveness of the Resolute Onyx stent in subjects deemed at high risk for bleeding and/or medically unsuitable for more than 1 month DAPT treatment receiving reduced duration (1 month) of DAPT following stent implantation.
The benefits of cardiac rehabilitation are well known. However, despite center based cardiac rehabilitation (CBCR) representing guideline-based care for patients with cardiovascular disease, most patients do not complete the maximum number of sessions allowed by third party insurance payers. As such, many patients may not be receiving the full clinical benefit ascribed to CR. This study will assess the efficacy of an innovative approach to CR delivery on attendance by combining both center-based and remote- or home-based CR sessions. The intervention group combines center-based CR and remote-/home-based CR and is tailored to the individual needs of each patient, accomplished with the assistance of an easy-to-access telecommunications methodology (telemedicine)
Intracoronary optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging allows for high-resolution characterization of coronary lesions. Difficulties in matching cross-sectional OCT-images with angiographic lesion localization, however, may limit its clinical utilization. The investigators sought to prospectively assess the impact of a novel system of real-time OCT-coregistration with angiography (ACR) compared to OCT alone and to the clinical standard proceeding (angiographic guided-PCI) all used for coronary lesion evaluation before percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). The investigators hypothesize that the use of ACR will lead to less incidence of insufficient covered coronary lesions (geographical mismatch) and/or a less rate of edge dissections after PCI (combined primary study endpoint)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a major cause of death and disability in developed countries.Human studies revealed a significant association between serum oxidative status using PON1, TBARS and thiol levels and the presence of CAD and its severity. However, these studies were addressing the severity of CAD depending on coronary angiography of patients presenting with ST elevation myocardial infarction, Non ST elevation myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, while part of them even had a history of CAD. Others where admitted for an elective coronary angiography for suspected stable CAD while only few patients were assessed for atypical chest pain. This study thus aims to assess the relationship between PON1 activity, TBARS and thiol levels and the existence of CAD and its severity in patients with no previous history of CAD presenting to the emergency department (ED) with acute chest pain but with no evidence of acute myocardial infarction or acute E.C.G ischemic changes. Assessment with a Cardiac CT scan instead of coronary angiography will allow the investigators to study the status of coronary atherosclerosis and calcium burden in all participants, including those presenting with atypical chest pain that most probably will not be referred by physicians to a coronary angiography. Further sub groups analysis will estimate this relationship particularly in low-intermediate risk groups depending on 3 different validated scoring systems - TIMI, GRACE and HEART score.
This prospective study is a pilot study for evaluating a guidance system that aims to facilitate high-quality echocardiographic acquisitions.
Patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease who are scheduled for clinically indicated SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) and will receive invasive coronary angiogram are recruited to receive SPECT MBF study.
Radiation exposure to patients from CT for CAC scoring has steadily decreased in recent years. This is mainly achieved through lowering tube currents alongside with the introduction of iterative reconstruction algorithms which allow compensating for increased image noise. However, the greatest radiation dose reduction can be obtained by reducing peak tube voltage. Yet lowering peak tube voltage remains challenging because tissue attenuation is closely related to photon energy, thus rendering the established thresholds for calculating CAC scores (i.e. Agatston scores) incomparable if peak tube voltages other than the standard 120 kilovolt peak (kVp) are applied. The investigators have developed novel tube-adapted thresholds for CAC scoring by CT at 80 kVp and 70-kVp tube voltage and have shown that these novel thresholds are valid, yielding results closely comparable to the standard 120-kVp protocol. The present study aims to optimize application of such low-dose scans in a general population through assessment of the impact of physiological patient parameters on image parameters such as image noise which per se may impact the accuracy and feasibility of ultra-low-dose CAC scoring with reduced tube voltage. Furthermore, the prognostic performance of such low-dose CAC scoring will be elucidated.
