Safety and Efficacy of the Ultimaster Stent

Start date: July 20, 2021
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Durable polymer was considered to be the cause of a chronic inflammatory response that leadas to impaired endothelialization of the stent strut and subsequently increases the risk of stent thrombosis. Ultimaster stent (Ultimaster, Terumo Corporation, Tokyo, Japan) are thin strut, silorimus-eluting, biodegradable copolymer to completely degrade over 3-4 months.

NCT ID: NCT05672706 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Ischemic Heart Disease

A Study of Pressure Waveform Analysis in Coronary Artery-II

Start date: January 4, 2023
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

The goal of this observational study is to test the feasibility of intracoronary adenosine administration during coronary flow reserve(CFR) and index of microcirculatory resistance(IMR) assessment in a population with angina. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Repeatability of CFR and IMR assessment while hyperemia with intracoronary adenosine was administered. - Evaluate the correlation of the intrinsic signal of coronary waveform versus physiologic ischemia, while defined by fractional flow reserve(FFR) and CFR respectively. - The predictive value of FFR, CFR, and IMR on major adverse cardiovascular outcomes in 3 years Participants will undergo FFR, CFR, and IMR assessments in the catheterization laboratory of the National Taiwan University Hospital Hsin-Chu Branch, then clinical events follow up for 3 years.

Physiology Optimized Versus Angio-guided PCI

Start date: December 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Angiography-derived Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) Virtual Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) plan is superior to conventional angiography-guided PCI in obtaining a good final physiology result, which is, in turn, associated with better prognosis. This has been demonstrated in a population with a relatively low lesion complexity. Therefore, whether angiography-based FFR virtual PCI could guarantee the same results in some complex anatomical settings (tortuous or calcific vessels, tandem or bifurcation lesions) is not known, also given the inherent limitations of the 3Dimensional (3D)-reconstruction. The ability of invasive FFR to achieve the same result if compared to angiography-guided PCI has been questioned by recent studies. Recent technological developments, namely the design of pressure wire microcatheters may allow an easier handling of the procedural planning and guidance. The rationale of the AQVA II study is to test whether a longitudinal FFR-based virtual PCI either angio- or microcatheter- derived is able to improve the post-PCI physiology value if compared to angio-guided PCI in complex and high-risk indicated procedures (CHIP).

NCT ID: NCT05654272 Recruiting - Heart Failure Clinical Trials

Development of CIRC Technologies

Start date: September 9, 2022
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Advanced cardiovascular imaging using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has proven to be effective in providing gold standard myocardial tissue characterization. Moreover, the intrinsic advantage of MRI's lack of exposure to ionizing radiation is particularly beneficial. At the same time, blood work can be very useful in early detection of certain cardiomyopathy, such as amyloid. However, there is a lack of agreement of on which markers are the most sensitive. This multi-study will allow us the unique opportunity to form a more comprehensive understanding for various cardiovascular diseases. Our team has developed novel cardiac MRI techniques that leverages endogenous tissue properties to reveal a milieu of deep tissue phenotypes including myocardial inflammation, fibrosis, metabolism, and microstructural defects. Among these phenotypes, myocardial microstructure has proven to be most sensitive to early myocardial tissue damage and is predictive of myocardial regeneration. In this study, the investigators aim to further study the importance of cardiac microstructure revealed by MRI in patient and healthy population and compare this novel technology with conventional clinical biomarkers.

NCT ID: NCT05647577 Recruiting - Stroke Clinical Trials

The Relationship Between Inflammatory ARTritis and CArdiac DIseAse

Start date: January 1, 2021
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

The goal of this prospective cohort study is to investigate cardiac comorbidity in a random sample of approximately 1200 patients from a population of outpatients with rheumatoid arthritis and axial spondyloarthritis referred to collectively as inflammatory arthritis (IA). The main questions it aims to answer are: - Using conventional echocardiography, the investigators aim to determine the prevalence of overt and asymptomatic cardiac dysfunction in a large random sample of outpatients with IA. Cardiac dysfunction will be evaluated by echocardiography and cardiac biomarkers (NT-pro-BNP, hs-TNT and hs-CRP). - In patients without known heart disease: Using 2, 5 and 10 year follow-up, the investigators aim to examine if advanced echocardiography can be used to detect early signs of heart disease by investigating the clinical significance of adding deformation measures - alone and in combination with selected biomarkers - to conventional risk factors in the cardiac risk assessment of patients with IA Participants will undergo an echocardiographic examination in combination with a general health assessment including obtainment of cardiac biomarkers and a electrocardiogram. Using advanced echocardiography - Tissue Doppler Imaging, 2- dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography, 3D-echocardiography and 3-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography - the investigators also aim to compare myocardial deformation parameters of patients with IA to a gender and age matched control group without IA from the Copenhagen City Heart Study.

NCT ID: NCT05635994 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Coronary Artery Disease

Advanced Invasive Diagnosis for Patients With Chronic Coronary Syndromes Undergoing Coronary ANGIOgraphy (AID-ANGIO)

Start date: June 14, 2022
Study type: Observational

AID-ANGIO is an observational, prospective, single arm, longitudinal study. Its objective is to investigate the diagnostic yield of the systematic use of a diagnostic strategy hierarchically addressing both obstructive and non-obstructive causes of myocardial ischaemia in an all-comers population of patients with chronic coronary syndromes (CCS) undergoing invasive coronary angiography (ICA). Angiographically severe-grade stenosis (≥70%) can be safely considered flow-limiting without further physiological assessment. Conversely, by means of a pressure guidewire, intermediate-grade stenosis would be evaluated with fractional flow reserve (FFR) and/or non-hyperaemic pressure ratios (NHPR) in order to determine if they are physiologically relevant. Those patients with non-obstructive CAD or normal epicardial coronary arteries would undergo functional coronary tests to investigate the presence of microcirculatory and vasomotor coronary disorders, which would account for non-obstructive causes of ischaemia. The main hypothesis of AID-ANGIO study states that, in patients with CCS referred to ICA, the application of a structured strategy -including ICA, physiological assessment of intermediate-grade stenosis and functional coronary tests- leads to a high diagnostic accuracy.

The interventions are: - Tocilizumab vs. placebo administered after induction of anesthesia. - Dexamethasone vs. placebo administered after induction of anesthesia. - Olanzapine vs. placebo administered prior to anesthesia. - A blood-flow targeted vs. a blod-pressure targeted hemodynamic strategy while the patient is on cardio-pulmonary bypass (CPB) - Low-tidal volume ventilation vs. no ventilation of the lungs while the patient is on CPB

NCT ID: NCT05631769 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Coronary Artery Disease

HOST - DAPT Duration According the Bleeding Risk

Start date: July 1, 2020
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

- Dual antiplatelet agent therapy (DAPT) is essential in treating PCI patients. DAPT can minimize thrombotic adverse events that occur not only at the stented lesion, but along the whole coronary tree. However, DAPT has a critical side effect of increasing bleeding complications. Addressing the clinical imperatives of lowering bleeding while preserving ischemic benefit requires therapeutic strategies that decouple thrombotic from hemorrhagic risk. - Recently, the ARC definition of high bleeding risk (HBR) has been published, so as to stress the need of optimal DAPT treatment in HBR patients. Due to the definitely higher bleeding risk in HBR patients, it would be rather more straight forward to titrate the optimal DAPT duration in these patients. In this line, many studies are in progress on HBR patients, with an ultra-short DAPT duration (i.e. Leaders free, Onyx ONE, Master DAPT, Xience 28, Xience 90, Evolve short DAPT trial, etc.). - As a counteract to the definition of HBR, there is a concept of LBR. Due to the relatively vague ischemic/bleeding risk in LBR patients, balancing ischemic and bleeding complications post-PCI is more difficult in LBR patients, which may be a more important dilemma for clinicians. In this regards, limited evidence exists on the optimal duration of DAPT in LBR patients. Various previous studies that have evaluated the optimal DAPT in PCI populations, did not have the concept of HBR or LBR, making interpretation difficult. - Therefore, this study is planning to compare the efficacy and safety of different DAPT durations, in patients stratified according to the ARB-HBR definition.

NCT ID: NCT05628337 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Coronary Artery Disease

The TEACH (Texting After ACS Discharge) Pilot Randomized Trial

Start date: June 16, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Although there have been substantial advances in the treatment of heart disease, heart attacks remain one of the leading causes of death and suffering around the world. Each year, more than 80,000 patients are hospitalized with heart attacks or related conditions in Canada. Even after discharge, patients are at high risk of having complications such that almost one in two patients after a heart attack will be readmitted to hospitals within the first year. Given the shortage of doctors and allied health care professionals, there is an emerging focus of digital health as a way to improve the care and outcomes after heart attacks. With more than 30 million cell phone users across Canada and almost all are already using text message services, the goal of this study is to conduct a pilot test using an innovative clinical trial design to see if the care and outlook of heart attack patients using mobile text messages can be improved.
