To evaluate the long-term outcome of chronic total occlusion (CTO) patients underwent contemporary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) techniques, we design this single-center, large-sample, prospective registry with five-year clinical follow-up, based on the intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) finding.
High-risk abdominal surgery is frequently complicated by postoperative complications, such as sepsis, pneumonia or anastomotic dehiscence. Asymptomatic myocardial injury after abdominal surgery (MINS) predicts non-cardiac complications. The etiology of MINS in abdominal surgery patients is unknown. Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is a physiologic mechanism that exposes tissues to brief periods of non-lethal ischemia and reperfusion, creating resistence for future serious ischemic insults. RIPC in patients after cardiac or aortic surgery is associated with a protective effect on the heart. The effect of RIPC in abdominal surgery patients is unknown. Objective of the study: To determine the effect of RIPC on MINS in patients after pancreatic sugery. Study design: Randomised controlled parallel group mono-center pilot study. Study population: 90 adult patients scheduled for elective pancreaticoduodenectomy in St. Antonius Hospital (45 in the intervention group and 45 in the control group). Intervention: RIPC: 3 periods of 5 minutes of ischemia followed by 5 minutes of reperfusion are created by inflating a blood pressure cuff on the upper extremity after induction of anesthesia and prior to surgery. In the control group a non-inflated blood pressure cuff is placed on the upper extremity for 30 minutes. Primary study parameters/outcome of the study: Maximum postoperative concentration of high-sensitive cardiac troponin T. Secondary study parameters/outcome of the study: Markers of inflammatory, intestinal and renal injury, postoperative complications during 30 days, length of stay and hospital mortality.
Prospective, multi-center, 2:1 randomized (Treatment : Sham Control), sham-controlled, double-blinded trial to compare treatment using the CardiAMP cell therapy system to sham treatment Treatment Group: Subjects treated with aBMC using the CardiAMP cell therapy system Sham Control Group: Subjects treated with a Sham Treatment (no introduction of the Helix transendocardial delivery catheter, no administration of aBMC)
This is a prospective, observational, single-center, single-arm, clinical trial designed to assess the efficacy of FFRangio in measuring FFR obtained from angiography compared to Invasive FFR for diagnosing hemodynamically significant coronary stenosis in Multi-Vessel Disease.
Develop an exemplary anti-thrombotic therapy network data platform and a intelligent terminal application(APP), establish an new pattern used in long-time anti-thrombotic management based on dynamic risk evaluation, and promoted and verified by 10 thousands large sample's cohort study.
This is a Multi Center Randomized Control Study of MeRes100 Sirolimus Eluting BioResorbable Vascular Scaffold System in treatment of approximately 484 subjects with Coronary Artery Disease in China. Eligible subjects shall have up to two de novo lesions in different epicardial vessels (One lesion in each coronary artery or it's major branch),Target lesion shall have visually estimated diameter stenosis ≥ 70% (or ≥ 50% and has clinical evidence of myocardial ischemia), lesion length ≤ 24mm, reference vascular diameter visually ≥ 2.75mm and ≤ 4.0mm. And subjects must meet all the study inclusion / exclusion criteria before enrolment in the study.All subjects shall accept clinical follow up at 1 month, 6 months, 12 months, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years and 5 years post procedure.
Diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization procedures are important interventions to reduce the risk of death, avoid future cardiovascular events, and improve quality of life of people with heart disease. However, exposure to the radiocontrast dyes required for these procedures can lead to contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI); a common and costly complication. There are accurate ways to identify patients at increased risk of this complication and strategies to prevent CI-AKI. This involves ensuring that patients who are at risk have procedures done with the minimum amount of X-ray contrast dye required, and that they receive optimal intravenous fluids at the time of the procedure. This study will evaluate the implementation of a strategy where computerized decision support tools are used to help doctors identify patients at risk of CI-AKI, as well as make decisions about how much contrast dye to use and how much intravenous fluid to provide to patients who are identified at risk of CI-AKI in cardiac catheterization.
This study will assess the use of position emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI) using ultra-small-superparamagnetic particles of iron oxide (USPIO) as a contrast agent in patients with coronary artery disease.
Anabolic androgenic steroids (AASs) have been associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). The illicit use of these substances also leads to a remarkable decrease in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) plasma concentration, which could be a key factor in the atherosclerotic process. The investigators tested the functionality of HDL by cholesterol efflux and antioxidant capacity and its association with CAD in young men.
MICS CABG (Minimally invasive coronary surgery), where coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is completed through a small incision over the left chest, has evolved to become a safe and less invasive alternative to conventional sternotomy CABG. Several observational studies have suggested significantly shorter time to return to physical activity for MICS CABG patients compared to sternotomy CABG patients. A randomized study is warranted to validate these findings, provide higher level of evidence, and potentially lead to changes in practice. The MIST Trial is a multi-centre, prospective, open label, randomized control trial comparing quality of life and recovery in the early post-operative period, between patients undergoing MICS CABG versus patients undergoing sternotomy CABG. Patients referred for isolated CABG for multi-vessel coronary artery disease and deemed technically suitable for sternotomy CABG as well as for MICS CABG are considered for enrollment into the trial. Quality of life questionnaires (The SF-36, Seattle Angina Questionnaire and EQ-5D-5L) will be used to assess the quality of life and recovery in patients undergoing sternotomy CABG or MICS CABG at 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months follow up.
