Sodium-glucose contrasporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors make up an antidiabetic medication that promotes glycosuria. They are known to have an indirect reduction in cardiovascular complications, based on a series of in-depth studies. However, the effect of SGLT-2 inhibitors towards the thickness of epicardial adipose tissue and cardiac function in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) with coronary artery disease (CAD) patients in Malaysia has not yet been fully explored. Therefore, this study aims to determine the effects in epicardial adipose tissue thickness and its cardiac function in T2DM patients with CAD after the initiation of SGLT-2 inhibitors.
The objective of the Zhongshan Hospital CONCORDE Registry is to evaluate utility, diagnostic value, and clinical outcomes of coronary physiological indices in an all-comers population of patients with suspected coronary artery disease referred to invasive coronary angiography in order to further inform patients and health care providers about which technologies are most effective and efficient in the diagnosis and management of coronary artery diseases.
The objective of this observational study is to evaluate the diagnostic effectiveness of magnetocardiography (MCG) in patients with stable coronary artery disease (SCAD) and compare it with coronary CTA (CCTA). Additionally, the study aims to determine the most suitable diagnostic index for MCG. The primary question it seeks to address is whether MCG or MCG combined with CCTA can be utilized to guide the clinical application of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for coronary heart disease.
The overall goal of this project is to compare the non-revascularization rate of coronary angiography in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) within 90 days after CT myocardial perfusion imaging (CT-MPI) or Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography myocardial perfusion imaging (SPECT-MPI), and 1-year major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE).
Despite the success of restoration of epicardial blood flow by the primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI), approximately a half of patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have failed myocardial reperfusion, as reflected by microvascular obstruction (MVO) and intramyocardial haemorrhage (IMH). The coronary angiography-derived index of microvascular resistance (caIMR) is a brand new method for assessing coronary microcirculation in ischemia and no obstructive coronary artery disease (INOCA). In this trial, the investigators aim to verify the safety and effectiveness of caIMR in STEMI who underwent primary PCI. The investigators will immediately measure the caIMR of patients who successfully underwent pPCI, and combine the caIMR with the long-term prognosis, to verify the prognostic performance of caIMR.
The goal of this experimental study is to compare the effects of early (2nd week) cardiac rehabilitation applied in addition to usual care on functional capacity, quality of life, frailty and body composition in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Does early cardiac rehabilitation contribute to increasing functional capacity? - Does early cardiac rehabilitation have positive effects on quality of life, frailty and body composition? Participants will be divided into 2 groups (n = 50) in a randomized controlled manner. Patients in the training group (n:25) will participate in an 8-week supervised cardiac rehabilitation program as an outpatient after discharge. Patients in the control group (n:25) will be provided with usual care after discharge. The control group will be informed about secondary prevention approaches and a home-based exercise program will be recommended. In addition to secondary prevention approaches and home-based exercise program, the training group will receive 3 sessions/week, 60 minutes of supervised cardiac rehabilitation for 8 weeks. All patients will be evaluated at baseline and after 8 weeks. Researchers will compare training and control groups to see if effects on functional capacity, quality of life, frailty, body composition
The study aims to support patients immediately after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) by implementing a telemonitoring program. Eligible patients have coronary heart disease and undergo PCI. The intervention group receives remote monitoring and text-based follow-up, with established health goals and education on using the telemonitoring application, along with necessary devices. The control group gets standard care. Outcomes measured include blood pressure, LDL levels, patient satisfaction, revascularization, and mortality. The study findings will enhance patient care after PCI and contribute evidence for widespread telemonitoring implementation in healthcare systems, aiding medical therapy and lifestyle modifications.
Swan Ganz catheter-Edwards Lifesciences obtains values of cardiac output/index and systemic vascular resistance/index using the mean artery pressure of either radial or femoral artery. During weaning from extracorporeal circulation, arterial waveform-derived cardiac output measurements from radial cannulation site is not reliable as compared with measurements obtained from femoral cannulation site.
This study is a prospective, multicenter, open-label, observational study to investigate the impact of using drug-coated balloons (DCBs) in the treatment of coronary artery lesions in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (MVD), as opposed to the default strategy of using only drug-eluting stents (DES). The investigators aim to assess changes in clinical practice towards a hybrid treatment strategy (DES and DCB) and its effects on clinical outcomes.
The SFRGENISTA study aims to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of a paclitaxel-coated balloon catheter containing shellac and vitamin E excipients (Genoss® DCB) in patients with coronary in-stent restenosis (ISR).
