The study will investigate whether a new high resolution heart Magnetic Resonance Imaging scan, combining assessment of ischemia and viability by perfusion and Late Gadolinium Enhancement -Cardiac Magnetic Resonance is superior to Late Gadolinium Enhacement imaging alone in predicting functional recovery following revascularisation.
This study aimed to explore underlying mechanisms of individual differences in drugs for coronary heart disease treatment and its association with adverse consequences. It will enroll approximately 4000 coronal heart disease patients aged between 18 and 80 years in mainland China and follow-up for at least 1 years. Questionnaires, anthropometric measures, laboratory tests, and biomaterials will be collected . The principal clinical outcomes of the study consist of ischemia attack , cardiac death, renal injury,and myotoxic activity.
This study evaluates the diagnostic efficiency of an automated method of noninvasive assessment of the fractional reserve of coronary blood flow. Fractional flow reserve is estimated with a one-dimensional mathematical model constructed by means of an automated algorithm. Noninvasive method values are thereafter compared with invasive method values.
1. to evaluate diagnostic accuracy and performance of IVUS-derived quantitative parameters to predict functional significance of stenosis defined using all the available physiologic indices. 2. to explores the association between IVUS-derived plaque characteristics and invasive physiologic indices.
1. to investigate the feasibility and diagnostic performance of contrast quantitative flow ratio (QFR) for identifying the functional significance of intermediate degree stenotic lesions in all-comer patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) including presentation of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with non-culprit lesion. 2. to compare the changes of contrast QFR and fractional flow reserve (FFR) according to severity of percent diameter stenosis (%DS)
The Multicenter FAST (Fast Assessment of STenosis severity) study is a prospective observational multicenter study designed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of offline 3D-QCA based FFR, using CAAS Workstation (Pie Medical Imaging, Maastricht, the Netherlands) in identifying hemodynamically significant coronary artery disease with pressure wire-based FFR (≤0.80) as the reference standard.
The study aims to compare the efficacy of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) over single antiplatelet therapy (SAPT) in patients with incomplete revascularization after coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). Before hospital discharge, patients will be 1:1 randomized to SAPT (acetylsalicylic acid 100 mg/die) or DAPT (acetylsalicylic acid 100 mg/die + ticagrelor 90 mg bis in die). DAPT will be continued for 12 months, and ticagrelor will be withdrawn thereafter. Primary endpoint is the evaluation of cardiac-related mortality at 5 years from hospital discharge.
Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is a visceral adipose tissue that surrounds the heart and the coronary arteries. It is metabolically active, secreting pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators and cytokines. With increasing EAT volume, inflammatory activity increasing, which suggests that EAT may locally influence atherosclerosis development in the coronary artery tree. The amount of EAT is associated with cardiovascular disease risk factors as well as presence and progression of subclinical atherosclerosis. Likewise, EAT volume is increased in patient with prevalent and incident coronary artery disease manifestation. In the setting of acute coronary syndrome, EAT was found to be associated with the TIMI risk score and Syntax II score. While CT imaging of the heart is the gold standard for EAT quantification, transthoracic echocardiography allows for a quick and reliable assessment of EAT thickness, as has been used in research studies and may qualify for routine EAT assessment in clinical routine.However, currently data on how quantification of EAT in clinical routine may impact patient management is lacking. We aim to investigate, whether quantification of EAT thickness via transthoracic echocardiography enables improved risk stratification in patients presenting with acute chest pain to the emergency department.
The main objection is to investigate molecular biology of myocardial damage during cardiac surgery procedures.
