This study evaluates cardiac biomarkers and their association to coronary artery disease in marathon runners.
The investigator aims to determine the feasibility of understanding the process of active versus chronic calcification using Na-F PET scan and contrast CT scan of the heart. The patient cohort will consist of patients diagnosed to have either acute coronary syndrome (ACS) (comprising of either unstable angina pectoris or acute myocardial infarction) or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). The PET images will be compared to images obtained from standard contrast CT of the coronaries. This study will provide additional insights about active versus non-active calcification amongst patients with ACS or suspected CAD.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of adding Vildagliptin versus Glimepiride to Metformin on markers of inflammation, thrombosis, and atherosclerosis in diabetic patients with symptomatic Coronary artery diseases. The pre-specified established biological markers of inflammation, thrombosis, and atherosclerosis will include: Interleukin 1 beta (IL-1 beta)), hs-CRP, Atherogenic index and coronary risk index, Lipid profile. and adiponectin levels..
This study aims at identifying the etiology of troponin-T elevations in patients with atrial fibrillation visiting the emergency department.
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.
Vegetarian and vegan diets have been shown to reduce cardiometabolic risk factors for chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and have been associated with decreased risk of these chronic diseases. The role of vegetarian and/or vegan dietary patterns and incident cardiovascular outcomes still remains unclear. To address these uncertainties, the investigators propose to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of the totality of evidence from prospective cohort studies to distinguish the association of vegetarian and/or vegan dietary patterns on the prevention and management of cardiovascular diseases. This proposed knowledge synthesis was commissioned by the Diabetes and Nutrition Study Group (DNSG) of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) and will be used to inform clinical practice and dietary guidelines, help improve health outcomes, and guide future research design.
This is a single center, retrospective, observational cohort study to assess the safety and efficacy of drug coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty in all forms of coronary artery disease. The Investigators intend to report outcomes of all patients who received DCB angioplasty at their center during the above mentioned period for up to 10 years.
To compare FFR guided complete revascularization during the index procedure with usual care in non-STEMI patients with multivessel disease.
The European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) guidelines have not made any specific recommendations regarding dietary pulses. To update the recommendations, the Diabetes and Nutrition Study Group (DNSG) of the EASD commissioned an umbrella review and updated systematic review and meta-analysis using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) approach to summarize the available evidence from prospective cohort studies of the association between dietary pulses/legumes and cardiometabolic disease outcomes (incident cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension and overweight/obesity).
The aim of this study is to evaluate evaluated the impact of preoperative HbA1c in diabetic patients on perioperative glycemic variability and outcome after off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB). The medical records of patients who had a preoperative diagnosis of diabetes and underwent OPCAB from 2005 to 2017 will be reviewed. Patients are divided by HbA1c levels (<7.0% or ≥7.0%). Glycemic variability during surgery and up to 24 hours after surgery is assessed by the coefficient of variation. The primary outcome is defined as a composite of postoperative permanent stroke, prolonged ventilation, deep sternal wound infection, renal failure, reoperation, mortality according to the definition of STS (Society of Thoracic Surgery) version 2.81 adult cardiac surgery database. If one or more of the above five morbidity or mortality occur, it is assumed that composite morbidity/mortality had occurred. We compare postoperative complications, mortality and perioperative glycemic variability between patients with HbA1c ≥7.0% and <7.0%, and examined the effects of perioperative glycemic control on postoperative morbidity and mortality (composite morbidity/mortality).
