Do Cobalt Chrome Stent and Paclitaxel-Eluting Stent Have Equivalent Clinical Result in Non-Complex Lesion?

Drug-eluting stent (DES) has been proved to reduced restenosis rate dramatically compared to bare metal stent (BMS). However, the long-term safety of DES is still uncertain. Recent meta-analysis showed that very late stent thrombosis rate was higher in DES group although overall mortality was similar between 2 groups. The safety ...

Pilot Study of a Self-help Intervention for Depression in Patients With a Chronic Disease

Depressed mood is common in patients with chronic disease and physical disability. It adversely affects quality of life, adherence to treatment and clinical outcome. Depression is expensive to the person, their family, employers and society. Recent developments in the UK General Practitioners' Contract mean that patients with two chronic diseases ...

Thrombin Regulated Platelet Activation

Thrombin is the major protease in the coagulation cascade whose pleiotropic actions can ultimately lead to thrombosis and tissue injury. Thrombin is the key effector of the coagulation cascade and converts fibrinogen to fibrin which is essential for laying the mesh work for clot formation. Further, thrombin also provides positive ...

PAR Regulation of Platelet Function in Diabetic Patients

Given the known roles of proteases and PARs in coagulation, inflammation, pain, healing and protection, the need for development of a PAR antagonist as a therapeutic agent for treatment of thrombosis, atherosclerosis and inflammation is well-recognized. Thus, blocking PAR action by inhibiting the PAR-G protein interface is an alternative target ...

Time Based Strategy to Reduce Clopidogrel Associated Bleeding Related to Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG)

Primary objective: We hypothesize that stratifying patients on clopidogrel into time-based platelet function recovery groups as determined by pre-operative clopidogrel response measured by point of care methods will result in similar rates of bleeding as compared to those of clopidogrel naïve patients undergoing elective CABG. Study design: This will be ...

Impact of Acarbose on Abnormal Glucose Regulation in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease (AAA Trial)

Acarbose suppresses the postprandial increase in plasma glucose levels by inhibiting the activities of alpha-amylase and alpha-glucosidase involved in digestion and absorption of carbohydrates in the intestine. A clinical study involving patients with type 2 diabetes demonstrated that acarbose decreased the post-load glucose level and improved glycosylated hemoglobin control. A ...

SmartRisk Stroke Prediction by MRI of Carotid Disease

Carotid artery disease (atherosclerosis) is a major cause of stroke that can be treated with carotid endarterectomy surgery (CEA) or stenting. Subjects with moderate, asymptomatic stenosis (50-79% narrowing) typically do not undergo intervention because the procedural risks outweigh the benefits. However, some of these individuals will have vulnerable plaque that ...

Incidence of Acute Cerebrovascular Events Using Either Minimized or Standard Cardiopulmonary Bypass Circuit

Coronary artery bypass grafting with extracorporal circulation is established as the golden standard. The conventional cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) system is associated with inflammatory reaction, hemolysis, hemodilution an disturbances of the blood coagulation system. Also it's well known that neurological disturbances caused by embolic material and air bubbles are potential risks ...

Firebird2 Cobalt-Chromium Alloyed Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Registry Trial

[Definition and management of adverse event] Adverse event refers to any undesirable clinical event. It may be caused by devices, rapamycin, procedure related complications, or the adjunctive medications (such as aspirin, clopidogrel, ticlopidine, or other anti-platelet agent) used in this study. Self report of adverse events by patients should be ...
