This is a small sample size clinical trial in Chinese population to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Shockwave Coronary Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) System to treat de novo, calcified, stenotic, coronary lesions prior to stenting.
To predict coronary atherosclerosis progression in patients with acute coronary syndrome by the use of intracoronary imaging methods. To investigate the ability of NIRS to detect vulnerable plaque characterized by the presence of OCT-defined TCFA To study the influence of gene polymorphisms (in genes playing role in vessel dilatation) on the progression of coronary atherosclerosis and clinical outcomes
This multicenter study involved 5 hospitals (Changhai Hospital; Yueyang Hospital of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine; Gongli Hospital; Putuo Hospital of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine; No. 904 Hospital of the PLA Joint Logistics Support Force Wuxi). The study enrolled 5000 patients for suspected CAD who referred to coronary angiography from January 2017 through December 2018.
The REDUCE-IT Canada SA Study is a cross-sectional study aiming to determine the proportion of study participants who meet the Health Canada-approved indication for icosapent ethyl (IPE;Vascepa®).
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a manifestation of systemic atherosclerosis for which single antiplatelet therapy (SAPT) is indicated if patients are stable. Recently dual pathway inhibition (DPI) by combining a low-dose factor Xa inhibitor (rivaroxaban2.5mg twice daily) with a single platelet inhibitor (ASA) has been demonstrated to be beneficial in treating CAD. The exact mechanisms underlying the benefits of DPI, are not completely understood. CAD is characterised by a state of chronic low-grade inflammation, where monocytes from CAD patients have a higher immune responsiveness to ex vivo stimulation with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) compared to healthy matched controls. Surprisingly, the investigators have recently observed an elevation in ex vivo immune responsiveness to LPS stimulation when switching from ASA monotherapy to DPI of ASA combined with rivaroxaban inpatients with peripheral arterial disease (n=11; unpublished). Remarkably this was associated with no changes in systemic inflammation, as determined by Olink proteomics analysis. These findings suggest that factor Xa inhibitors can enhance immune cell responsiveness despite being clinically beneficial to CAD. The exact mechanisms contributing to the observed increased immune responsiveness remain unexplored.
It is an observational study which objective is to analyze, through a series of invasive parameters, the state of the coronary microvasculature immediately after the successful percutaneous coronary intervention of a chronic total occlusion and at 6 months after the index procedure. The aim of the study is to check the variation in the values of the index of microcirculatory resistance (IMR) and invasive absolute coronary flow (AF). The working hypothesis is that, in the follow-up of these patients, AF will increase significantly with respect to its baseline and, conversely, IMR will be reduced during the follow-up.
It has become apparent that patients with co-morbidities have an increased risk of mortality from coronarvirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). However, the impact of subclinical respiratory and cardiovascular disease on the outcome of patients with COVID-19 is currently unknown. This observational study will assess the impact of incidental cardiovascular calcification on radiological imaging on the outcomes of patients with COVD-19.
Oat fibre has been shown to lower cholesterol and may have cardioprotective effects. However, whether this translates to actual cardiovascular risk reduction is unclear, as there is a lack of controlled human trials. To address this uncertainty, the investigator proposes to use established cardiovascular disease risk scores, such as those recommended by the Canadian Cardiovascular Society and other clinical practice groups, to create composite risk scores in assessing future risk. The data on oat fibre will be collected through a systematic review of controlled trials, composite cardiovascular risk scores will be calculated for each eligible study, and meta-analyses will be conducted to assess the overall effect. The findings generated by this proposed knowledge synthesis will help improve the health of consumers through informing evidence-based guidelines and improving health outcomes by educating healthcare providers and patients, stimulating industry innovation, and guiding future research design.
This multicenter study involved 5 hospitals (Changhai Hospital; Yueyang Hospital of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine; Gongli Hospital; Putuo Hospital of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine; No. 904 Hospital of the PLA Joint Logistics Support Force Wuxi). The study enrolled 3637 patients with coronary atherosclerosis who were confirmed by coronary angiography from January 2017 through December 2018.
Digital cardiology is gaining power in the field of preventive cardiology recently, and several trials have already shown good results of dietary therapy with digital cardiology. However, there has been no reports that showed effect of dietary counseling through digital cardiology for secondary prevention of coronary artery disease. TeleDiet study investigates the impact of dietary therapy with a smartphone application on the content of meals and metabolic parameters for patients with coronary artery disease.
