The G-NUH registry is a two-center, real-world registry of percutaneous coronary intervention in patients with significant coronary artery disease. From January 2010, PCI-treated patients from Gyeonsang National University Hospitals (Jinju & Changwon) were enrolled in this registry. The aim of this registry is to investigate long-term clinical outcomes and predictors of adverse outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention from the academic hospitals.
The standard or usual treatment for patients diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism is treatment with blood thinners (called anticoagulants). While treatment of blood clots with blood thinners is effective, some research has shown that adding a statin (medication used to lower cholesterol) may give extra protection. It is thought that statins can improve how cells along the walls of the vein control inflammation, which can prevent new blood clots from forming. The medication in this study, rosuvastatin, is approved in Canada for use as a cholesterol-lowering medication. The use of rosuvastatin in this study is considered investigational. This means that Health Canada has not approved the use of rosuvastatin as a treatment for blood clots. However, it has been approved for use in this research study. The purpose of this study is to examine if adding a statin (rosuvastatin) to the usual blood thinner treatment will decrease the risk of another blood clot forming. The investigators also hope to discover if taking a statin reduces damage to your veins. To do this, some of the participants in this study will get rosuvastatin and others will receive a placebo (a substance that looks like the study rosuvastatin but does not have any active or medicinal ingredients). The placebo in this study is not intended to have any effect on your blood clot. A placebo is used to make the results of the study more reliable.
This study compares two oral medications (tranexamic acid and aminocaproic acid) as hemostatic agent administered in patients undergoing total knee replacement.
In patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation treated with dabigatran etexilate, the level of adherence will be measured using a questionnaire, the Danish National Prescription Registry and pillcount and will be related to plasma levels of dabigatran measured by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and coagulation assays. The aim of the study is to measure the level of adherence and evaluate the usefulness of different coagulation assays to measure adherence in these patients. Furthermore, the aim is to determine the correlation between the anticoagulant effect of dabigatran using different coagulation assays and plasma levels of dabigatran. Most studies so far have been performed in vitro with plasma samples spiked with dabigatran. In this study the present knowledge from results of coagulation assays in dabigatran spiked plasma samples will be compared to the results of coagulation assays using blood samples from real-life patients.
The main objective of this study is to investigate whether the for individuals with thin gingival thickness who are susceptible to gingival recession, the investigators will use i-PRF with microneedle to increase gingival thickness without the need for surgical procedures
The investigators have developed an optical system that measures the coagulation status of patients in vivo in a non-invasive manner. The system is based on a small optical sensor that emits coherent light into the skin and collects the reflected light from the red blood cells in the blood vessels in the skin under the sensor. The sensor is placed on the fingertip, and during a brief period of occlusion of blood flow by a small pneumatic cuff, red cell movement becomes Brownian in nature and is thereby affected by the viscosity of the blood. In patients who have a bleeding tendency, red blood cell movement will be faster, while in patients with a hypercoagulable state the red cell movement will be slower. Treatment with anticoagulant medications is expected to affect the movement of the red blood cells and these changes can be detected by the sensor. The investigators plan to test the device in normal subjects and in subjects taking Coumadin, direct oral anticoagulants, antiplatelet drugs and heparin-based medications. The investigators will determine whether anticoagulants affect the noninvasive measurement and compare the results with standard laboratory tests of coagulation.
The purpose of this study is to compare aspirin versus low-molecular weight heparin (LMWH) (Enoxaparin) as a thromboprophylaxis in patients who sustain a fracture.
The overarching objective of the study is to determine the effectiveness of LMWH/ warfarin vs. DOAC anticoagulation for preventing recurrent VTE in cancer patients. The intervention strategy is Direct Oral AntiCoagulants (DOAC) therapy with edoxaban, apixaban, rivaroxaban, or dabigatran. The comparator is low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) alone or with warfarin. The information gained will empower cancer patients and physicians to make more informed choices about anticoagulation strategies to manage VTE.
One hundred and fifty patients with Crohn's disease involving the terminal ileum or the colon, in clinical remission, with or without endoscopic activity will be included. Thrombin generation will be measured and correlated with the simplified endoscopic activity score. The patients will be evaluated for development of deep vein thrombosis after one-year of follow-up.
The ability to explain bleeding or clotting complications in patients treated with rivaroxaban remains challenging. In addition, there is limited data on how coagulation tests perform in patients treated with therapeutic doses of rivaroxaban. Predicted responses of coagulation tests to therapeutic doses of rivaroxaban may be helpful in better understanding abnormal responses to rivaroxaban. The purpose of the study is to define a therapeutic reference range for peak and trough coagulation tests in patients taking FDA approved doses of rivaroxaban and to determine which tests may be most clinically useful for monitoring rivaroxaban.
