EArly Discharge After Transradial Stenting of CoronarY Arteries in High-Risk Patients of Bleeding

OBJECTIVES The primary objective is to compare the incidence of major bleeding and anemia 24h post-PCI in patients at high-risk of bleeding after transradial PCI with heparin or bivalirudin.


Assessment of Thrombotic Status in Patients at Risk of Cardiovascular Thrombosis

Impaired thrombotic status is associated with adverse cardiovascular events. Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and atrial fibrillation (AF) are at increased risk of thrombotic events. It is not known whether thrombotic status differs in these patients, or how thrombotic status alters in response to clinical stabilisation with treatment. The ...

Phase N/A

Comparative Assessment of Coronary MR Angiography Vs Coronary Multislice CT After Coronary Artery Reimplantation in Children and Young Adults.

This is a prospective, multicentric study conducted in order to evaluate if MRI coronarography is as powerful as Cardiac Multislice CT in detection of coronary abnormalities after coronary reimpantation in children over 5 yo, teenagers and young adults who underwent coronary reimplantation in childhood. Newborns suffering from transposition of the ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Coronary Images Used During Patient Education on Coronary Artery Disease and Subsequent Lifestyle Modifications. Is a Picture Really Worth a Thousand Words?

Subjects in this research study have Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). This occurs when there is a build-up of fatty material in the wall of the heart arteries that causes narrowing of the arteries. This could lead to chest pain, a heart attack, weakening of the heart and/or permanent damage to ...

Phase N/A

The Greek AntiPlatElet Atrial Fibrillation Registry.

All consecutive patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention over 1 year period will be screened for participation. Discharge antithrombotic medication will be at the discretion of the treating physician. Follow-up visits will be performed at 1, 6 and 12 months post-percutaneous coronary intervention by telephone contact or personal interview. All outcome ...

Phase N/A

Randomized Comparison of Cangrelor Tirofiban and Prasugrel in Patients With STEMI Referred for Primary PCI.

Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the main reperfusion therapy in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Ancillary pharmacological therapy includes dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and an inhibitor of P2Y12 receptor, responsible of adenosine diphosphate(ADP)-mediated platelet activation.Prasugrel and ticagrelor are the most recent and efficient oral P2Y12 inhibitors available ...


The Effect Of An Expanded Long Term Periodization Exercise Training In Patients With Cardiovascular Disease

Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) of patients with Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) has been practiced in Europe to varying degrees since the early 1970s. CR is a comprehensive, long-term program involving medical evaluation, prescribed Exercise Training (ET), cardiac risk factor modification, education and counselling. These programs are designed to limit the physiologic and ...

Phase N/A

Arrhythmias in Post-Myocardial Infarction Patients

Patients with acute myocardial infarction have exceptionally high mortality rates exceeding 10% during the first year post-MI. The incidence of sudden cardiac death after acute myocardial infarction is the same with ST-elevation and non-ST elevation myocardial infarction. The risk of disabling stroke and sudden cardiac death is high especially during ...

Phase N/A

Use of Flaxseed(Alpha Linolenic Acid) Powder in Morbidly Obese Patients With Systemic Inflammation

Population:Morbidly obese non-smoking patients of the Department of Gastroenterology, candidates for possible bariatric treatment Criteria for inclusion: Males and females, 18- 65 years old, body mass index/BMI > 40 kg/m2 (or > 35 kg/m2 with comorbidities), non-hospitalized and receiving general oral diet, with elevated C-reactive protein/ CRP (> 5mg/L), and ...


Platelet Function Assessment for Atherothrombotic Patients

Methods and Expected Results—In this prospective follow-up study, we will assess the predictive power of different assays of platelet function (PFA-100, plasma levels of von Willebrand factor, P-selectin, soluble CD40 ligand, and myeloid-related protein-8/14, and ADP-induced P-selectin [CD62P] expression on platelets by flow cytometry) before and after high-dose (600 mg) ...
