In systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), cardiac manifestations, e.g. coronary artery disease (CAD) and myocarditis are leading causes of morbidity and mortality. The prevalence of subclinical heart disease in SLE is unknown. We studied whether a comprehensive cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) protocol may be useful for early diagnosis of heart disease in SLE patients without known CAD
Most previous trials support the absolute increase in bleeding risk with perioperative administration of antiplatelet. Furthermore, recent studies demonstrated that perioperative major bleeding may be related to increase cardiovascular risk. The investigators will compare the efficacy and safety of continuing versus stopping antiplatelet therapy during perioperative period in patients underwent PCI(Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) with next generation DES(Drug Eluting Stent).
This is a prospective, single-arm, unblinded, case observation study evaluating a commercially released 'Conformité Européenne' (CE)-mark co-registration software system along-side of a commercially- released CE-mark coronary physiology and X-ray system during routine clinical workflow. The purpose of this study is to collect Professional user feedback regarding clinical utility of the SyncVision 4.X system.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether ABSORB bioresorbable vascular scaffold is non-inferior to XIENCE everolimus-eluting cobalt-chromium stent with respect to target-lesion failure (TLF) at 1 year.
The purpose of the current study is to demonstrate non-inferiority of everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold to everolimus-eluting stents in patients with chronic total occlusion regarding the antirestenotic efficacy at 8 to 10-month angiographic follow-up.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relative effectiveness and safety of Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold in acute myocardial infarction compared to other (drug eluting stents) DES.
The goal is to investigate the efficacy, safety and possible neuro- and cardioprotective effects of remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) in adult cardiac patients undergoing isolated aortic valve replacement surgery with a biological prosthesis. Neuropsychological evaluation preoperatively and at 30d after surgery will establish if there are any differences in neuropsychological performance between groups. A large array of biochemical markers will be analyzed from plasma samples taken at different time points. Additionally skin biopsies from the lower limb will be taken before and after performing RIPC on said limb. During the venous cannulation phase a atrial biopsy will be taken. The biochemical markers from plasma and tissue samples will be used to asses brain tissue damage, inflammation and cardiac tissue damage between groups. This will be a single center prospective randomized study with two groups. A intervention group (RIPC) and a control group. Study size is: 40 patients in total, 20 patients per group.
Prospective, randomized, controlled, multicenter, open-label study to compare everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffolds to everolimus-eluting stents in patients with diabetes mellitus.
Design: Single center, single-blind randomized controlled trial of patients with high risk native coronary artery lesions (defined as ≥2 contiguous yellow blocks on the block chemogram) requiring clinically indicated percutaneous coronary intervention. Patients will be randomized to either a combined intervention or conventional PCI. Cardiac biomarker measurements will be performed before PCI and 18-24 hours later. Treatment: Combined intervention consisting of pre-PCI intracoronary vasodilator and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor administration, use of an EPD if technically feasible, and complete coverage of the lipid core plaque, if technically feasible. Control: Conventional PCI. Duration: 30 days follow-up. The primary trial objective is to compare the incidence and size of periprocedural MI, as assessed by the peak post-PCI troponin distribution in the two study groups. The secondary endpoints are: (1) Reduction in the incidence of >3x and >10x upper limit of normal increase in CK-MB. (2) Reduction in the incidence of slow flow/no-reflow post PCI. (3) Lower incidence of major adverse cardiac events, defined as the composite of death, acute coronary syndrome, or coronary revascularization) during 30-day follow-up.
Prospective, multi-center, post-market, non-randomized, nested-control, observational study of the CE marked CardioKinetix Parachute Implant System.
