This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of single dose preoperative ferric carboxymaltose in the prevention of postoperative infections and blood transfusions in patients scheduled for isolated coronary artery bypass grafting. Half of the patients will receive ferric carboxymaltose and half of the patients physiological saline solution as placebo.
Background: the decision-making process of patients with angiographically-intermediate coronary lesions (ICL) is clinically challenging and may benefit from adjunctive invasive techniques. Fractional-flow-reserve (FFR) represents the gold standard to evaluate ICL but optical-coherence-tomography (OCT) is a novel, promising, high resolution coronary imaging technique. Objectives: 1. Investigate the relation between OCT and FFR parameters in ICL and understand if OCT measures may predict FFR. 2. Understand if OCT parameters may predict clinical outcome of patients with ICL not underwent revascularization on the bases of negative FFR. Study design: multicentre, international, individual patient's level data pooled analysis.
The purpose of this study is to improve the differential diagnosis and clinical outcomes of acute coronary syndrome with non-obstructive coronary arteries, to investigate the relationship between the structural and functional state of the heart and the clinical course of the disease.
Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) are considered as a new revolution in coronary intervention due to their potential advantages for long term follow up. However, current generation BVS have also some drawbacks that restrict the use for complex lesions. Using BVS and drug eluting stents (DES) together -implanting DES for BVS inappropriate segments -may be a feasible option to avoid the disadvantages of permanent foreign body and to reduce very late adverse events. In this context, we investigated the clinical outcomes following treatment with hybrid strategy with concomitant use of BVS and DES for complex lesions. A single center retrospective cohort was performed enrolling 40 patients with complex lesions treated with hybrid approach from February 2015 up to April 2017. Lesion segments with a large plaque burden and/or severe calcification, aorto-ostial and bifurcation lesions that may be unfavorable for BVS, treated with DES. BVS and DES were implanted with minimal overlap of DES and BVS struts. The primary end-point was target lesion failure (TLF) which was a composite of cardiac death, target vessel myocardial infarction and target lesion revascularization (TLR). During follow-up, coronary angiography was performed when patients had ischemic symptoms.
To evaluate the effect of evolocumab on fibrous cap thickness (FCT) in subjects with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) who are taking maximally tolerated statin therapy.
This prospective registry is intended to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the XIENCE Sierra stent.
Bivalirudin is widely used as an anticoagulant to reduce the risk of bleeding in PCI perioperative period. Additionally, 15.7%-32.7% patients have diabetes mellitus who undergo percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), so bivalirudin was used to anticoagulate in these patients to evaluate its safety and efficacy.
This study will investigate if patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) can be successfully incorporated into an already existing Cardiac Rehabilitation programme. One group of PAD patients will exercise as a group, and the other group will exercise alongside patients with coronary artery disease (CAD).
Intro: Chronic total occlusions (CTO) are the most severe coronary lesions. Negative distal vessel remodeling occurs in these lesions, leading to reduction of artery diameter. Treatment of CTO with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is associated with good clinical outcomes. However, QCA and IVUS studies showed a notable lumen and vessel enlargement distal to recanalized CTO. In addition, optical tomography (OCT) studies showed high rates of stent strut malapposition and incomplete stent strut coverage after CTO PCI. The Stentys Xposition S is a self-apposing stent device which lowers stent strut malapposition rates. Its safety and effectiveness has been demonstrated in STEMI and stable coronary patients but never investigated in CTO lesions. Hypothesis/Objective To investigate whether self-expanding stents are more effective than balloon-expandable stents for reducing stent malapposition at 6 months after implantation in patients with CTO undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. Method Pilot randomized study. Patients are randomized to receive either self-expandable stent or balloon expandable stent to perform CTO-PCI. Follow-up coronary angiography is performed at 6 months post-PCI. Stent malapposition is evaluated by OCT.
The study is a prospective, randomized, controlled, exploratory trail to evaluate the strategy of "one-stop" endovascular treatment for concomitant coronary artery disease and aortic atherosclerotic disease.
