Prospective interventional study, open, non-comparative and non-randomized. The research concerns physiological parameters of the coronary and ocular blood circulation. At the coronary level, the curves of pressure and Doppler flow will be extracted from ComboMap® (Philips). The coronary microvascular resistances, basal and hyperemic, will be determined by the average ratio of the distal pressure and flow. At the ocular level, a fundus oculi and an OCTA (angiography by tomography in optical coherence) examination will be performed. The measures of the FFR and the coronary microvascular resistance will be determined by a specific guidewire allowing simultaneous measures of pressure and Doppler flow (ComboWire®, Philips), in 200 patients with intermediate stenosis of the left anterior descending artery (LDA). Topological parameters characterizing the retinal area and choriocapillaires will be determined by statistical approaches and mathematical morphology. To establish a predictor of the coronary microvascular resistance from the eye vascular parameters, we shall use a non-linear regression by supervised machine learning. The main cardiovascular risk factors (hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, age, sex) will be part of predetermined input features for the machine learning.
This study evaluates cardiac biomarkers and their association to coronary artery disease in marathon runners.
This prospective registry is intended to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Optimax® stent.
The present study will investigate the effect of acute exercise on fasting and postprandial risk markers for coronary heart disease (CHD) in healthy male cigarette smokers and non-smokers. Participants will complete two, 2-day trials in a random crossover design separated by an interval of at least 1 week. On day 1, participants will rest (control) or complete 60 minute of treadmill exercise at 60% of maximum oxygen uptake (exercise). On day 2, participants will rest and consume two high fat meals (breakfast and lunch) over an 8-h period during which 13 venous blood samples and nine blood pressure measurements will be taken at pre-determined intervals. It is hypothesised that men who smoke cigarettes will exhibit impaired fasting and postprandial metabolic risk markers compared to non-smokers, but a single bout of exercise will be equally, if not more, efficacious for improving the CHD risk factor profile in smokers than non-smokers.
Few studies have attempt to improve DAPT adherence through social media. The investigators will explore the prevalence of DAPT discontinuation and prove the hypothesis that using social media will improve DAPT adherence among patients requiring DAPT following DES implantation.
The purposes of this study are 1) to explore the association between facial characteristics and the increased risk of coronary artery diseases; 2) to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of appearance factors for coronary artery diseases.
Study objective - to assess the efficacy, tolerability and adherence of bisoprolol/perindopril FDC in patients with HT and stable CAD in everyday practice. Type of the program: multicenter, observational, uncontrolled, open program. The program will involve 480 general practitioners (GPs) and cardiologists from the primary care facilities.Each doctor includes four patients. It is planned to include not less than 1920 patients in total.
Quantitative Flow Ratio (QFR) is a novel method for evaluating the functional significance of coronary stenosis. QFR is estimated based on two angiographic projections. Studies have shown a good correlation with the present wire-based standard approach Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) for assessment of intermediate coronary stenosis. The purpose of the FAVOR III Europe Japan study is to investigate if a QFR-based diagnostic strategy will results in non-inferior clinical outcome after 12 months compared to a standard pressure-wire guided strategy in evaluation of patients with chest pain (stable angina pectoris) and intermediate coronary stenosis.
This study aims to investigate the clinical effect of the new saphenous vein harvesting technique "No-touch" in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting(OPCABG), comparing to the conventional technique. Adopting CTA to evaluate the 3 months patency of the graft, we will compare veins harvested using No-touch technique to saphenous veins using conventional open technique.
In patients after myocardial infarction (MI) (heart attacks) and treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the current standard is dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT), with aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor inhibitor, for 1 year of treatment. At 1 year, there are several options including: i) Ongoing DAPT (with aspirin and ticagrelor), ii) Selective treatment use of a P2Y12 inhibitor based on risk profiles. This study is a pilot vanguard study to evaluate several strategies for choosing anti-platelet regimen among patients post MI and PCI at 1 year.
