The investigators enrolled 217 patients with acute STEMI undergoing primary PCI. The rs2305619 polymorphism was evaluated by real time PCR and plasma PTX3 concentration was assessed by human PTX3 ELISA kit.
335 of patients with STEMI treated by primary PCI were assayed for PTX3 measurement by ELISA method. The angiographic and clinical outcomes were evaluated according to the PTX3 concentration.
The study is an investigator-sponsored, prospective, multicenter, randomized, open-label study designed to compare efficacy and safety between bivalirudin and heparin in elderly patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing emergency PCI.
The objective of this study is to identify Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) patients' specific needs and preferences for depression treatment via in-person focus groups to (a) guide MBCT adaptation; and identify barriers and facilitators to (b) group videoconferencing delivery, and (c) blood spot data collection to enhance feasibility. Through qualitative measures participants will report specific physical, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms to be targeted in the intervention, discuss barriers and facilitators to participating in a video-conference treatment program and completing blood spot data collection procedures.
The objective of this research study is to test the accuracy of preexisting criteria versus expert interpretation for the diagnosis of acute coronary occlusion (major heart attack due to a completely blocked blood vessel). If our hypothesis proves to be true, this would provide a significant improvement in the care for patients who present to the hospital with possible symptoms of coronary ischemia (symptoms due to lack of blood flow to the heart). The primary analysis will be designed as a multi-center, retrospective case-control study.
The study will assess the safety and performance of the Fantom sirolimus eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) in the acute setting of myocardial infarction with unstable lesions and thrombogenic milieu.This is a prospective evaluation of clinical and patient related measures in STEMI patient who undergo urgent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent implantation. Patients with culprit lesions with 2.5 - 3.5 mm diameter and located in one of the main coronary arteries will be included in the trial and prospectively observed. The study will comprise 20 patients, who will undergo additional evaluation with optical coherence tomography (OCT) and near-infrared spectroscopy/intravascular ultrasound (NIRS/IVUS) at baseline, 6 months, 18-24 months and 36 months. The device will be delivered in sizes 2.5 and 3.0 in diameter / 18 and 24 mm and 3.5 mm x 18 mm in length.
Patients with STEMI post-revascularization therapy suffered from various clinical outcomes. Non-invasive imaging, including echocardiography, MPS using SPECT or PET, and CMR, has been proved to be of great predicting value in prognosis. The purporse of this registry is to assess the prognostic value of multi-modality imaging-derived indices.
The Pre-Hospital 12-lead electrocardiogram (PHECG) is a simple test that helps ambulance clinicians assess patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome (heart attack), and provides clinical data to inform ongoing care. This project builds on previous work by this team, which found that one in three eligible patients did not receive a PHECG, but those that did had a lowered risk of short-term death. In this study the investigators will update that work, and explore reasons for variations in practice - highlighting opportunities to improve care and outcomes. Using routinely collected data and qualitative methods, the investigators will research patient, practitioner and contextual factors contributing to the decision to administer a PHECG. The aim is also to develop an intervention to increase the proportion of eligible patients that receive a PHECG, and to produce a proposal for further funding to test this intervention in a subsequent randomised trial.
The purpose of the study is to assess the frequency and intensity of intramyocardial haemorrhage in patients with primary STEMI and different reperfusion strategies.
The objective of this study is to assess efficacy and safety of Pressure-controlled intermittent Coronary Sinus Occlusion (PiCSO) therapy started post flow restoration but prior to stenting during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) compared to standard PCI in the setting of acute ST-segment elevation anterior myocardial infarction (STEMI).
