It has been assumed that some elements of the ERAS protocol may contribute to the reduction of complications and improve the satisfaction of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery. Elements of the ERAS strategy will be tested in this study. The elements that prove to be feasible and have a positive effect on the treatment process will be introduced into everyday clinical practice. In the next stage of the research, we are planning to investigate whether the introduction of the ERAS strategy has had a long-term positive effect on the quality of life after treatment (a survey 1 month and 6 months after leaving the hospital).
DigTech investigates the effect of a text message-based intervention to encourage lifestyle change on objective measures of cardiovascular risk in individuals with coronary heart disease (CHD) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). DigTech will recruit 700 participants from 18-75 years old with CHD after PCI. Half of the participants will be randomised into a 24 week intervention trial, which includes sending 4 personalized short messages about risk factors modification 4 times per week and the other half will be controls. Participants will complete 3 main study visits: - Visit 1: Baseline visit conducted at the beginning of the study - Visit 2: Randomization - Visit 3: End of study (24 weeks). Each visit will repeat the same set of cardiovascular measures including information about previous treatment, blood pressure, ECG, echocardiography, stress tests, blood sampling, International Physical Activity Questionnaires (IPAQ) and other measures.
The investigator aimed to evaluate the long-term (up to 10 years) follow-up of the patients who enrolled the IVUS-XPL study (Impact of IntraVascular UltraSound Guidance on the Outcomes of Xience Prime Stents in Long Lesions), which was shown the superiority of IVUS-guided stent implantation at 1 year in terms of major adverse cardiac events.
Remote ischemic conditioning(RIC) is a protective systemic strategy by organs brief and sublethal ischemia to confer protection from subsequent severe ischemia in distant organs, especially for heart and brain. This study will discuss whether RIC can play a part in preventing the patients with coexistence of cerebral and coronary atherosclerosis from the recurrence of cerebral vascular disease(CVD) or coronary artery disease(CAD). This study selects patients who suffered an ischemic stroke within 14 days prior to enrollment. All patients complete cerebral and coronary artery assessment. And then the the investigators select the patients who both have at least one cerebral vascular and at least one coronary artery stenosis over 50%, or the patients who both have at least one cerebral vascular stenosis over 50% and myocardial ischemic events history. These patients will randomly divide into two groups, RIC group and non-RIC group. Non-RIC group will only accept cardio-cerebrovascular disease secondary prevention treatment. RIC group will use not only cardio-cerebrovascular disease secondary prevention treatment, but also RIC everyday for three months, 5 cycles 5min ischemic-5min reperfusion each day. For the first month, the the investigators will call RIC group patients every week for insuring compliance and adverse effect. All patients will follow up endpoint events, cardio-cerebrovascular disease secondary prevention treatment, and the adverse effect every three months, up to one year.
EVAREST will identify and validate novel blood and imaging biomarkers of potential value for consistent and accurate interpretation of stress echocardiography. During phase one, blood samples will be collected to assess the impact of cardiac stress on levels of circulating biomarkers and examine whether the measurement of these biomarkers can provide additional prognostic information. Phases one, two and three will also determine whether novel imaging biomarkers can be identified in the echocardiograms that can be used for objective interpretation of the stress echocardiograms. EVAREST will recruit up to 5000 patients (First 500 during phase one, an additional 500 during phase two and an additional 4000 during phase three) from multiple hospitals across United Kingdom, who have been referred for a stress echocardiogram as part of their investigations into ischaemic heart disease.
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.
This prospective study is a pilot study for evaluating a guidance system that aims to facilitate high-quality echocardiographic acquisitions.
The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of a lifestyle intervention for patients living with stable coronary artery disease (CAD). One group will receive the the intervention, and the other will receive treatment as usual (TAU). The investigators hypothesize that, compared to the TAU group, participants receiving the intervention will 1) experience greater confidence in managing their cardiac disease, as indicated by perceived self-efficacy and illness perceptions; 2) experience greater psychological adjustment as indicated by depressive, anxious, and demoralization symptoms; 3) experience greater engagement in health behaviors including healthy eating and physical activity.
A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Safety and Efficacy Study of Dutogliptin in Combination with Filgrastim in Early Recovery Post-Myocardial Infarction
The purpose of the study: to increase the efficiency of diagnosis, treatment and prediction of the course of coronary heart disease in patients with adenocarcinoma of the prostate gland, depending on the hormonal status by determining the cardiovascular risk factors, factors of angiogenesis, structural and functional state of the heart, coronary vessels, kidney damage and their pharmacological correction.
