The aim of this study is to assess clinical safety and efficacy of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using a newer generation drug-eluting stent (DES) in the context of optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) guidance or intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance.
This study aims to evaluate the psychometric properties of a newly developed FFQ specified for northern Chinese CHD and their high risk patients (CHD-FFQ). The psychometric properties include test-retest reliability, content validity, convergent validity, discriminant validity, concurrent validity and predictive validity. Particularly, this study will measure the physiological indicators, including plasma lipid profile (i.e. TG, TC, HDL-C, LDL-C), BG, BP and BMI twice at baseline and the end. The level of these physiological indicators will be compared with the fat intake measured by the CHD-FFQ, i.e. the baseline intake to test its convergent validity. It is also expected to predict the diet-related progression of CHD risks among high-risk individuals, i.e. patients with two or more CHD risk factors as following: raised fasting blood glucose (BG) level, increased blood pressure (BP), increased triglycerides (TG), decreased HDL-Cholesterol (HDL-C), increased LDL-Cholesterol (LDL-C), smoking and central obesity (International Diabetes Federation, 2015). In addition, this study will provide the FFQ's concurrent validity in assessing the intake of energy and nutrients against the CDC-FFQ. Moreover, whether the FFQ could detect the known differences in energy intake between men and women will be established for its discriminant validity.
The GLOBAL LEADERS Adjudication Sub-StudY, GLASSY, is based on a re-assessment of all the events reported in the dataset of the parent trial (COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF 1 MONTH OF TICAGRELOR PLUS ASPIRIN FOLLOWED BY TICAGRELOR MONOTHERAPY VERSUS A CURRENT-DAY INTENSIVE DUAL ANTIPLATELET THERAPY IN ALL-COMERS PATIENTS UNDERGOING PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTION WITH BIVALIRUDIN AND BIOMATRIX FAMILY DRUG-ELUTING STENT USE) by an independent Clinical Event Committee (CEC), composed of three physicians not involved in the main trial. The substudy include the first 19 top-enrolling sites of the GLOBAL LEADERS to reach the estimated sample size of 7,186 patients for the two co-primary outcomes of death, any non-fatal myocardial infarction, any non-fatal stroke or urgent target vessel revascularization and bleeding events classified as 3 or 5 according to the Bleeding Academic Research Consortium (BARC) criteria. To ensure a comprehensive assessment of clinical events, a triggers logic is adopted to identify other potential events qualifying for study endpoints but not reported as such by local investigators.
To determine associations between dietary factors and risk of major chronic diseases and their risk factors
The aim of the BRAGATSTON study is to provide a low cost tool for measuring CAC in breast cancer patients, thereby identifying patients at increased risk of CVD. Breast cancer patients and doctors can act upon this, by adapting the treatment and/or by adopting cardioprotective interventions. Hereby, the burden of CVD in breast cancer survivors can be reduced and better overall survival rates can be achieved.
The single center retrospective study evaluates the acute and long term outcomes of bioabsorbable drug-eluting scaffolds (BVS) implantation in 50 consecutive coronary artery disease (CAD) patients using optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging.
Numerous single-center studies have indicated gadolinium-enhanced stress CMR perfusion imaging has excellent diagnostic accuracy for coronary artery disease and negative clinical event rates, with its diagnostic accuracy exceeding nuclear scintigraphy. However, current prognostic evidence supporting clinical use of stress CMR is limited by study size, single-center settings with a predominance of academic centers, and a lack of "real-world" study design. Large-scale multicenter real-world evidence from a registry will provide the much needed information to guide evidence-based clinical adaptation that benefits patient care.
The present study aims to demonstrate the superiority of optical coherence tomography (OCT)-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) compared with Angiography-guided PCI.
This study is undertaken to determine if intravenous Lipo-PGE1 therapy would improve coronary microvascular perfusion in patients with ischemic heart disease by CMRI.
The primary aim of this study is to examine if long-term patterns of alcohol consumption are associated with time-to-onset for incident coronary heart disease (fatal and non-fatal), using data from multiple cohorts.
