How Often Can Optimal Post Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) Results be Achieved?

Original hypothesis A simple Physiologically-guided Incremental Optimisation Strategy (PIOS) can increase the proportion of patients undergoing PCI in whom a post-PCI FFR 0.90 can be achieved from 40% to 60%. Experimental details and design of proposed investigation Overall aim: A randomised control trial of a physiologically-guided optimisation strategy to determine ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) on Subclinical Atherosclerosis

Hypercholesterolemic subjects with subclinical atherosclerosis will be randomized into two groups: standard treatment group and standard treatment plus EECP intervention group. The results of ultrasound examination and markers of inflammations will be compared.

Phase N/A

Fractional Flow Reserve Derived From Computed Tomography Coronary Angiography in the Assessment and Management of Stable Chest Pain

FORECAST is a randomised controlled trial comparing 1400 patients with new onset pain who are assigned to either routine assessment or FFRct assessment. This trial aims to test the hypothesis that FFRct, used as the default screening tool for patients presenting with new onset stable chest pain, would be associated ...

Personalized Activity Intervention in Rehabilitation After Cardiac Operations (the PACO Trial)

The PACO trial is a randomized clinical trial conducted in Heart Centers of Kuopio and Turku university hospitals. The coronary artery disease, aortic valve stenosis and mitral valve insufficiency patients preparing for elective coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), aortic valve replacement (AVR) or mitral valve repair (MVR) will be randomized ...

A Reduced-carbohydrate Diet High in Monounsaturated Fats in Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an increasing global problem, especially in developing countries. T2D is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), where hyperglycemia is especially important for microvascular damage. Previous studies in T2D on reduced carbohydrate intake has shown beneficial effects on glycemic control, indicated by reduction ...

18F-Flutemetamol and Plaque Vulnerability

Rationale: Amyloid beta (Ab) is mainly known for its role in Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology. However, Ab seems not only to be involved in AD pathology, but also in atherosclerosis, which might explain the remarkable similarities in risk factors between these two pathologies. In vitro studies suggest that a major ...

Use of Glidesheath Slender to Reduce Radial Artery Occlusion and Vascular Access Site Complications Following Transradial Coronary Angiography

Based on previously reported studies the rates of radial artery occlusion using a standard 6 Fr. sheath is around 5-10%, compared to the single feasibility study of the Glidesheath Slender by Aminian et al (see reference in the citations), the rate of radial artery occlusion was reported 0.88%. This study ...

ShorT and OPtimal Duration of Dual AntiPlatelet Therapy-2 Study for the Patients With ACS

The drug-eluting stents (DESs) are currently used in the majority of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. On the other hand, the problems of the first-generation DES (late adverse events, such as very late stent thrombosis) have been pointed out. Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) has become a standard regimen after DES ...

Phase

Hemodynamics and Autonomic and Cognitive Performance After Carotid Revascularization Procedures

Hypothesis and Significance: Late clinical outcome and prognosis after CAS may be inferior to that after CEA in terms of autonomic modulation, hemodynamic remodeling, and cognitive function. Specific Aim: 1) To compare the impact of CEA and CAS on long-term post-operative baroreceptor function and on cognitive brain function, and analyze ...

Phase N/A

Coronary Artery Disease Progression in Patients With Prediabetes

Patients undergoing PCI and IVUS pullback for the target vessel will be enrolled in a prospective study. Before PCI and at 24 month follow up fasting blood will be collected for glucose, HbA1c, insulin, C peptide, lipid profile assessment and the homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) calculation. Patients' ...
