A study to assess the safety and preliminary efficacy of serial intravenous dose of Allogeneic Mesenchymal Bone Marrow Cells in subjects with ischemic heart failure and implanted left ventricular assist devices.
After a 30-year decline, heart disease is projected to increase up to 18% by 2030. Participation rates in cardiac rehabilitation remain extremely low and hopeless individuals are less likely to participate. This innovative study has the potential to advance science, improve patient care, and improve patient outcomes by demonstrating the effectiveness of the Heart Up! program to increase physical activity and reduce hopelessness in patients with heart disease. Hopelessness is associated with a 3.4 times increased risk of mortality or nonfatal myocardial infarction in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD), independent of depression. Hopelessness has been identified in 27-52% of patients with IHD and can persist for up to 12 months after hospital discharge. Hopelessness, a negative outlook and sense of helplessness toward the future, can be a temporary response to an event (state) or a habitual outlook (trait). Hopelessness is associated with decreased physical functioning and lower physical activity (PA) levels in individuals with IHD. While research has investigated strategies to increase PA among IHD patients in general, the study team is the only group to design an intervention to promote PA specifically in hopeless IHD patients. The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to establish the effectiveness of our 6-week mHealth intervention (Heart Up!) to promote increased PA in hopeless patients with IHD. A total of 225 hopeless IHD patients will be enrolled from a large community teaching hospital in the Midwest. Patients will be randomized (75 per group) to one of three groups: 1) motivational social support (MSS) from a nurse, 2) MSS from a nurse with additional significant other support (SOS), or 3) attention control (AC). It is hypothesized that 1) The MSS with SOS group will have the greatest increase in average minutes of moderate to vigorous PA per day at 8 and 24 weeks as compared to the MSS only or AC groups; 2) Greater increase in minutes of moderate to vigorous PA per day will be associated with decreased state hopelessness levels from baseline to weeks 8 and 24; and 3) Increased social support and increased motivation will mediate the effects of Heart Up! on a greater increase in moderate to vigorous PA at 8 and 24 weeks. The findings from this study could transform care for IHD patients who are hopeless by promoting self-management of important PA goals that can contribute to better health outcomes.
forty patients with age ranged between 40-70 years undergoing elective coronary artery bypass graft surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass will be included, they will divided into two groups. Ozone Group: in which Ozone will be added to cold blood cardioplegia. Control Group: in which in which only cold blood cardioplegia Primary outcome: Pattern of recovery of myocardium after declamping of Aorta 1. Time of cardiac rhythm return after declamping. 2. type of cardiac rhythm after declamping and rate of DC use. Secondary outcome: A-cardiac parameters - Post operative inotropic score - Incidence of post operative cardiac dysrhythmias - postoperative ejection fraction (EF) - Postoperative parameters of myocardial ischaemia - a- Troponin levels - b-Pro BNP - • Histopathology of myocardial sample for detection of myocyte cellular edema as a marker of ischemic changes. B-non cardiac parameters: 1. inflammatory markers 1. CRP 2. L\N 3. P\N 2. ICU stay 3. hospital stay 4. morbidity and mortality
1. To evaluate the long-term clinical outcomes and prognostic factors in patients with coronary artery disease undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery. 2. To evaluate the long-term clinical outcomes and prognostic factors in patients with coronary artery disease undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention with second generation drug-eluting stent.
The main purpose of this single-center study is to determine the spectrum and levels of cardiospecific circulating microRNAs in patients with different stages of atherosclerosis according to 640-slice multispiral computed tomography (MSCT).
Mental disorders have been shown to be associated with a number of general medical conditions (also referred to as somatic or physical conditions). The investigators aim to undertake a comprehensive study of comorbidity among those with treated mental disorders, by using high-quality Danish registers to provide age- and sex-specific pairwise estimates between the ten groups of mental disorders and nine groups of general medical conditions. The investigators will examine the association between all 90 possible pairs of prior mental disorders and later GMC categories using the Danish national registers. Depending on whether individuals are diagnosed with a specific mental disorder, the investigators will estimate the risk of receiving a later diagnosis within a specific GMC category, between the start of follow-up (January 1, 2000) or at the earliest age at which a person might develop the mental disorder, whichever comes later. Follow-up will be terminated at onset of the GMC, death, emigration from Denmark, or December 31, 2016, whichever came first. Additionally for dyslipidemia, follow-up will be ended if a diagnosis of ischemic heart disease was received. A "wash-out" period will be employed in the five years before follow-up started (1995-1999), to identify and exclude prevalent cases from the analysis. Individuals with the GMC of interest before the observation period will be considered prevalent cases and excluded from the analyses (i.e. prevalent cases were "washed-out"). When estimating the risk of a specific GMC, the investigators will consider all individuals to be exposed or unexposed to the each mental disorder depending on whether a diagnosis is received before the end of follow-up. Persons will be considered unexposed to a mental disorder until the date of the first diagnosis, and exposed thereafter.
1. to evaluate diagnostic accuracy and performance of IVUS and OCT-derived quantitative parameters to predict functional significance of stenosis defined using all the available physiologic indices. 2. to explores the association between intravascular imaging-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 main objection is to investigate molecular biology of myocardial damage during cardiac surgery procedures.
