Supplemental oxygen is frequently used in patients admitted to hospital due to ischemic heart disease. In the setting of suspected myocardial infarction, clinical practice guidelines advocate the use of supplementary oxygen even in patients with normal levels of peripheral oxygen saturation. The theoretical basis for this practice is that an increase in blood oxygen content may limit ischemia and final myocardial damage and subsequent infarct size. However, although some experimental laboratory data and small studies in humans have supported the use of supplemental oxygen in patients with coronary artery disease, contradicting evidence suggests possible harmful effects, mainly through mechanisms involving coronary vasoconstriction and reduction of myocardial perfusion (hyperoxemic coronary vasoconstriction). In the EPOXY-IMR trial, the investigators aim to further explore possible detrimental effects from routine use of supplemental oxygen on the coronary circulation with special focus on the small vessels referred to as the coronary microcirculation.
The purpose of this pharmacokinetic (PK) study is to characterize the maximum concentration (Cmax) and time-to-maximum concentration (Tmax) of Biolimus A9TM and its active metabolites sirolimus and everolimus in a cohort of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients following implantation of BioFreedomTM SS stent.
H-REPLACE trial is a prospective, randomized, open-label, active-controlled, multicenter study in participants with ACS (STEMI or NSTEMI, unstable angina). All eligible participants receiving background treatment of aspirin plus clopidogrel or ticagrelor will be randomly assigned to either oral rivaroxaban 2.5 mg twice daily or rivaroxaban 5 mg twice daily or subcutaneous (SC) enoxaparin 1mg/kg twice daily until hospital discharge or 12 hours before revascularization therapy for a maximum of 8 days.
Approximately 5% to 7% of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention for the treatment of coronary artery disease, require chronic oral anticoagulation on top of aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor antagonist, mainly due to non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Advent of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOAC) increased treatment options, while there is cumulative evidence that dual combination of NOAC and P2Y12 receptor antagonist attenuates bleeding without compromising efficacy. Greek AntiPlatElet Atrial Fibrillation (GRAPE-AF) is an observational study of non-valvular atrial fibrillation patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, planning to enroll >500 participants during 1 year period in Greece. Patients will be followed-up at 1, 6 and 12 months post hospital discharge. Key data to be collected pre-discharge include demographics, detailed past medical history, antithrombotic and concomitant treatment. Study's primary endpoint is clinically significant bleeding defined as Bleeding Academic Research Consortium (BARC) ≥2) at 12 months, between vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) and NOACs-treated patients. All clinical events will be adjudicated by an independent endpoint committee.This study would provide "real world" information on current antithrombotic treatment patterns and clinical outcome of patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention.
XIENCE 28 Global Study is a prospective, single arm, multi-center, open label, non-randomized trial to further evaluate the safety of 1-month (as short as 28 days) dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in subjects at high risk of bleeding (HBR) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with the approved XIENCE family (XIENCE Xpedition Everolimus Eluting Coronary Stent System [EECSS], XIENCE Alpine EECSS, XIENCE PROX EECSS, or XIENCE Sierra EECSS of coronary drug-eluting stents
This is a Phase 3, prospective, open-label, international, multicentre study of Flurpiridaz (18F) Injection for PET MPI in patients referred for ICA because of suspected CAD.
To identify the optimal cut-off values in different platelet function testing to predict MACCE at 12-months in complex PCI patients of China
A Study to Evaluate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamic Effects of MEDI5884 in Adults With Stable Coronary Heart Disease
The study aim is to assess polyethylene glycol (PEG) coated collagen patch (Hemopatch) on the quality of drainage after surgery, the length of hospital stay, the number of reoperations due to haemorrhage and treatment cost. The study will be conducted in 200 patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) with the use of extracorporeal circulation and Internal mammary Artery (IMA) harvesting. Traditional method of haemostasis will be applied in 100 patients and Hemopatch will be additionally used in 100 subjects to prevent haemorrhage after IMA harvesting and sternum closure.
The main purpose of our study is to investigate whether haemodialysis itself affects the efficacy of antiplatelet drugs and the effects of two different types of dialysis membranes (polysulfone membranes and polyamide membranes) on antiplatelet efficacy. A total of 60 patients with ESRD and under dual-antiplatelet treatmen for at least 5 days will be enrolled and divided into the Clopidogrel group (clopidogrel 75mg qd;aspirin 100mg qd, n=30) and the Ticagrelor group (ticagrelor 90mg bid; aspirin 100mg qd, n=30). All included patients will receive haemodialysis by two different types of dialysis membrane.Platelet aggregation of venous blood from all patients will be detected by LTA and VerifyNow immediately before and after two times of haemodialysis.
