Heart failure (HF) is an enormous health burden affecting approximately 5.1 million people in the US and is the cause of 250,000 deaths each year. Approximately 50% of HF is caused by myocardial ischemia and requires immediate restoration of coronary blood flow to the affected myocardium. However, the success of reperfusion is partly limited by intramyocardial hemorrhage, which is the deposition of intravascular material into the myocardium. Hemorrhagic reperfusion injury has high prevalence and patients have a much greater risk of adverse left ventricular remodeling, risk of fatal arrhythmia, impaired systolic function and are hospitalized at a greater rate. Recent magnetic resonance imaging techniques have improved assessment of reperfusion injury, however, the association between MRI contrasts and reperfusion injury is highly unclear, and lacks specificity to IMH. Improved imaging of IMH and accurate knowledge about its spatial and temporal evolution may be essential for delivery of optimal medical therapy in patients and critical to identify patients most at risk for adverse ventricular remodeling. The overall goal is to investigate the magnetic properties of hemorrhage and develop MRI techniques with improved specificity to hemorrhage. New MRI techniques permit noninvasive assessment of the magnetic susceptibility of tissues and can target tissue iron. Therefore, we hypothesize that MRI imaging of myocardial magnetic susceptibility can map hemorrhagic myocardium. We will perform a longitudinal observational study in patients after reperfusion injury to validate these methods, compare them with conventional MR contrasts and develop MR methods for imaging live animals.
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 primary objective in this study is to investigate if vein grafts harvested and implanted with the non-touch technique are superior to conventional vein graft technique with respect to mid-term patency, in patients undergoing CABG surgery.
The purpose of the study: to increase the efficiency of diagnosis, treatment and prediction of the course of coronary heart disease in patients with adenocarcinoma of the prostate gland, depending on the hormonal status by determining the cardiovascular risk factors, factors of angiogenesis, structural and functional state of the heart, coronary vessels, kidney damage and their pharmacological correction.
It is a single arm clinical evaluation of safety and efficacy of the Medtronic Resolute Onyx™ zotarolimus-eluting coronary stent system in subjects who are eligible for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in de novo lesions amenable to treatment with Resolute Onyx™ Stent System in China.
It is a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Medtronic Resolute Onyx™ Zotarolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent System in comparison with the Medtronic Resolute Integrity™ Zotarolimus-Eluting coronary stent system in the treatment of subjects eligible for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in China.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether using a mobile app increases adherence to a heart healthy prescription after discharge from a cardiac rehab program.
The purpose of the study is to assess the feasibility of Cardiac Shock Wave Treatment in patients with anginal chest pain and evidence of abnormal myocardial perfusion under stress in the absence of significant stenoses of the epicardial coronary arteries.
Recently, researchers have paid attention to the development of new products such as supplements food and nutraceuticals for identify and develop integrative therapies to be used in cardiovascular disease. As suggested by literature, some nutritional components (creatine, ribose) can enhance the fundamental energy levels for the functioning of the heart muscle and can enhance the body's antioxidant capacity through the reduction in free radicals activity, one of the main pathogenic mechanisms of these diseases. In this context, the investigators have developed a research with the principal purpose to establish whether a supplement of creatine and ribose can improve the total work capacity during exercise in a population of patients with known ischemic heart disease.
The purpose of the Surveillance is to know the frequency and status of adverse device effects and adverse events in order to assure the safety of the new medical device, and to collect efficacy and safety information for evaluating clinical use results.
