RAPID-VT Pilot is a single centre prospective cohort pilot study to assess the feasibility, safety and efficacy of catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT) guided by a novel real-time software to localize the origin of VT during the ablation procedure.
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of peripheral and respiratory muscle training on respiratory muscle strength, respiratory functions, exercise capacity and quality of life in coronary artery patients with metabolic syndrome. Prospectively, randomly, double-blind, and controlled study. Stable coronary artery patients with metabolic syndrome will be included to the study from the Istanbul University Cardiology Institute clinic. Patients will be randomized into 3 groups; Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) and Peripheral Muscle Training Group (n: 20): 3 days per week for 6 weeks duration. Peripheral Muscle Training will be applied by elastic band and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation three times per week for 6 weeks.Inspirator Muscle Training (IMT) and peripheral muscle training Group (n: 20): IMT will be applied 7 days per week, twice a day for 15 minutes. The program will continue for 6 weeks duration under weekly control of the investigator. Training intensity will set at 30% of the maximum inspiratory pressure.Peripheral Muscle Training will be applied by elastic band and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation three times per week for 6 weeks. Peripheral Muscle Training Group (n: 20): Exercise will be applied by elastic band and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation three times per week for 6 weeks.Parameters will be recorded before and after training. Evaluation parameters:Demographic and anthropometric measurements, respiratory function test,respiratory muscle strength,dyspnea, peripheral muscle strength, 6 minutes walking test, physical activity, quality of life, depression, sleep quality and laboratory evaluation.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of multiple doses of vericiguat on the QTc interval in patients with stable CAD (coronary artery disease).
This study proposes to develop an MRI technique named Coronary Atherosclerosis T1-weighed Characterization (CATCH) that will improve the quality and reliability of coronary atherosclerosis evaluation, as well as simplify the scanning process and significantly shorten imaging time compared with conventional imaging methods.
This is a prospective study which aims to explore the effect of Trimetazidine on the improvement of coronary microvascular dysfunction in patients with INOCA (ischemia and no obstructive coronary artery disease). Enrolled patients will be assessed SAQ(Seattle Angina Score), Canadian Angina Grade(Canadian Cardiovascular Society, CCS), Six-Minute Walk Test, CFR(coronary flow reserve) .CFR inspection with D-SPECT and pressure guide wire.Patients will receive six months Trimetazidine(20mg tid) after enrollment. And their SAQ (Seattle Angina Score), Canadian Angina Grade(Canadian Cardiovascular Society, CCS), Six-Minute Walk Test, CFR will be followed up.
This is a prospective, randomized, controlled, multicenter, open-label study designed to assess whether Pd/Pa is non-inferior to FFR when used to guide treatment of intermediate coronary artery stenosis
Recommendations for cardiovascular rehabilitation (CVR) encourage exercise training, primarily involving the aerobic system, to allow patients to regain independence in daily activities. However, the lactic anaerobic process is also involved during these activities (stair climbing, carrying loads, etc.). Hence there is a major interest in accurately assessing patients' anaerobic capacities in order to tailor suitable exercise programs. However, there are no functional tests specifically dedicated to the evaluation of lactic anaerobic metabolism and adapted to people with coronary disease. The investigators offer a dedicated test, the short and fast test (SFST), which can be applied in current clinical practice and has already been evaluated in a population of healthy subjects. The purpose of this project is to evaluate the safety, feasibility and validity of SFST in a population of patients with coronary artery disease.
The CATH-VR study will investigate the effect of virtual reality (VR) on patient pain, anxiety, and radial artery vasospasm during coronary angiography. Our hypothesis is that the use of VR will decrease patient anxiety and pain via validated scoring systems, as well as show a low rate of vasospasm of the radial artery. In addition, we hypothesize that the amount of opioid and benzodiazepine medications utilized for procedural sedation will be lower in the intervention arm. VR has gained recent attraction as an alternative or adjunctive treatment option for pain, but its effect on reducing procedural sedation has not been studied. We propose a single center, randomized control pilot study to further investigate. The patient population will include adults older than 18 years who present for outpatient diagnostic coronary angiography.
Polymorphisms of the cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2C19 enzyme has been consistently shown to modulate clopidogrel response. Accordingly, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning on the potential for reduced efficacy of clopidogrel among carriers of loss-of-function alleles (LOF) for CYP2C19 and suggest considering alternative antiplatelet therapies for these individuals. The pharmacodynamic (PD) effects of prasugrel and ticagrelor are not affected by CYP2C19 genetic polymorphisms. However, to date there are no head-to-head PD comparisons between these agents among patients with different CYP2C19 genetic polymorphisms, which is currently under investigation in CAD patients undergoing PCI at UF Health-Jacksonville (UFJ 2014-12, NCT 02065479). In order to rule out play of chance findings, pharmacogenetic investigations require external validation cohorts to support the study findings. Therefore, the present randomized study is designed to serve as an external validation cohort conducted in patients with established CAD not undergoing PCI testing the non-inferiority in platelet reactivity of prasugrel versus ticagrelor among CYP2C19 LOF allele carriers.
The objective of this prospective, multicenter, randomized, open-label trial is to evaluate the completeness of stent expansion following a strategy of lesion preparation with either a Super High-Pressure NC PTCA Balloon (OPN NC) or a Scoring PTCA Balloon (NSE Alpha) after unsuccessful lesion preparation with conventional NC balloon angioplasty in an angiographically well-defined group of patients with severely calcified coronary lesions (grade 3) undergoing coronary stent implantation (SYNERGY everolimus-eluting stent (EES)).
