Mineralocorticoid Receptor Antagonism Clinical Evaluation in Atherosclerosis Trial

Atherosclerotic disease, or hardening of the arteries, is characterized by the thickening of the arterial walls due to fatty deposits in wall and inflammation in the wall of arteries. High cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and genetics play an important role in developing clinical symptoms of atherosclerosis disease. The ...

Phase

Remote Ischemic Preconditioning and Postoperative Myocardial Ischemia

High-risk abdominal surgery is frequently complicated by postoperative complications, such as sepsis, pneumonia or anastomotic dehiscence. Asymptomatic myocardial injury after abdominal surgery (MINS) predicts non-cardiac complications. The etiology of MINS in abdominal surgery patients is unknown. Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is a physiologic mechanism that exposes tissues to brief periods ...

Phase N/A

Implementing Myocardial Computed Tomographic Perfusion in a Community Hospital Setting

This will be a prospective, observational study designed to include a convenience sample of all qualifying patients undergoing myocardial CTP. The study will enroll patients who have undergone a clinically indicated CCTA for suspicion of coronary artery disease and have a suspected coronary stenosis 50%-69% on that examination. CCTA is ...

Phase N/A

Classification of Carotid Plaque With Computed Tomography With Fast kVp (Kilovolt Peak)-Switching Technique

Patients planned for CEA (carotid endarterectomy) due to carotid stenosis will be examined with one extra CT and MRI before surgery. The CEA specimen is stored in the BiKE-registry (a biobank of operated carotid plaque at the Karolinska Institute). In that registry the patients will be given a personal code ...

Phase N/A

Genoss DES Prospective Multicenter Registry

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the main stream of treatment of coronary artery disease. Drug-eluting stents (DES) have dramatically reduced the rates of restenosis and target lesion revascularization (TLR) compared with bare-metal stents (BMS). Newer-generation DES with a durable polymer such as Xience (Abbott, US) and Resolute (Medtronic, US) were ...

Phase N/A

Whole-Heart Myocardial Blood Flow Quantification Using MRI

All subjects will receive cardiac MRI scans to diagnose CAD or CMD. MR perfusion scans will be performed twice per subject: once at rest, and once after administration of a pharmacologic stress agent. There will be a >15 minute delay between the two scans. A gadolinium-based contrast agent will be ...

Phase N/A

A Pharmacodynamic Study Comparing Prasugrel Versus Ticagrelor in Patients Undergoing PCI With CYP2C19 Loss-of-function:

Clopidogrel is the most broadly utilized platelet P2Y12 receptor inhibitor. However, numerous studies have shown that pharmacodynamics (PD) response profiles vary among clopidogrel treated patients and that individuals with reduced response have an increased risk of recurrent ischemic events. There are multiple factors contributing to clopidogrel response variability. Among these, ...

Phase

Low Maintenance Dose Ticagrelor Versus Clopidogrel in Diabetes Patients Undergoing PCI

Patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) are characterized by platelet hyperreactivity and reduced pharmacodynamic (PD) effects to several oral antiplatelet agents, including clopidogrel. In addition to the hyperreactive platelet phenotype, impaired drug metabolism as well as increased platelet turnover rates may contributed to impaired clopidogrel-induced antiplatelet effects in DM patients. These ...

Phase

Revascularization in Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation

The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of routine FFR-guided complete revascularization with PCI compared to conservative management in patients with concomitant coronary artery disease who are undergoing TAVI.

Phase N/A

Asan Multivessel Registry

The purpose of this study is to evaluate long-term prognoses of patients with multivessel coronary disease treated medically or surgically or percutaneously in real world practice.
