A Study of Rivaroxaban (JNJ-39039039) on the Venous Thromboembolic Risk in Post-Hospital Discharge Patients

This is a randomized (the study medication is assigned by chance), double-blind (neither physician nor participant knows the identity of the assigned treatment), placebo (an inactive substance that is compared with a drug to test whether the drug has a real effect)-controlled, event-driven, multicenter study in patients who are hospitalized ...


Optimal Anticoagulation for Higher Risk Patients Post-Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation Trial

This is a prospective, open-label, randomized trial to investigate whether a strategy of ongoing, long-term oral anticoagulation with rivaroxaban 15 mg daily is superior to a strategy of antiplatelet therapy, ASA 75-160 mg, alone in preventing cerebral embolic events in moderately high risk patients following successful catheter ablation for atrial ...


Vascular Events In Surgery patIents cOhort evaluatioN - Cardiac Surgery

Worldwide over 2 million adults (>30,000 Canadians) undergo heart surgery annually. Although heart surgery provides important survival benefits, it is associated with potential major complications such as death, stroke, and heart attack. There is promising evidence that measurement of heart injury markers after surgery will identify patients at risk of ...

GLP-1 and Hyperoxia for Organ Protection in Heart Surgery

Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) have associated atherosclerotic renal and cerebral disease making these organs especially vulnerable to ischemia during open heart surgery. At the Heart Center at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen the investigators perform more than 1000 open heart surgery operations yearly. The primary indication is CAD with or ...

Can rTMS Enhance Somatosensory Recovery After Stroke?

Sensory deficits are present in the majority of stroke survivors. Inability to feel movement, touch or pain impairs the investigators' ability to interact with environment and diminished the quality of life. These sensory deficits significantly impair functional activity and slow down recovery during rehabilitation. Currently available sensory rehabilitation techniques can ...

Fit For Function: A Community Wellness Program for Persons With Stroke

The program will be delivered through a partnership between McMaster University, the YMCA and Hamilton Health Sciences/ the Brant Community Healthcare System/ the Niagara Health System. Participants will exercise three times a week and receive weekly education about how to take care of themselves after a stroke. The YMCA staff ...

Robot Aided Rehabilitation - Multi-point Evaluations

BACKGROUND AND SIGNIFICANCE Stoke is the leading cause of adult disability and the third leading cause of death (killing 160,000 Americans/year) in the United States; about 750,000 first ever and recurrent strokes occur in the United States each year. The economic burden is huge, and stroke is estimated to cost ...

Phase N/A

Resistive Training Combined With Nutritional Therapy After Stroke

The VA research team has played a prominent role in documenting the significant skeletal muscle atrophy that accompanies chronic hemiparesis after disabling stroke. Muscle volume is reduced by 24% in paretic vs. non-paretic legs, having significant implications for strength, function, fitness, metabolism and general health. The investigators' previous work establishes ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Hip Flexors Isokinetic Strengthening on Gait Capacities in Subacute Stroke Patients

Post-stroke patients often present with gait disorders due to several physical impairments. Hip flexor deficit is one of the more prevalent trouble and is associated with gait capacities. This study aims at evaluating the impact of an isokinetic hip flexors strengthening rehabilitation program in the subacute phase after stroke. Patients ...

Phase N/A

Home-based Exercise Program With Smart Rehabilitation System

The total 100 patients with stroke will be divided into each the intervention group and the control group. The intervention group will be provided the home-based smart rehabilitation system for 4 weeks, and the control group will be educated the conventional home rehabilitation exercise at once. The immediate effects of ...
