Colchicine Cardiovascular Outcomes Trial (COLCOT)

Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of myocardial infarction, stroke and peripheral arterial disease. Research has clearly demonstrated that inflammation plays a key role in the initiation, progression and manifestations of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerotic lesions begin as an accumulation of lipid-laden cells (primarily macrophages) beneath the endothelium, and progress with the ...


Evaluation of Safety and Efficacy of Lumason/SonoVue in Subjects Undergoing Pharmacologic Stress BR1-142

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of Lumason-enhanced dobutamine stress echo (DSE) in subjects having a suboptimal left ventricular endocardial border delineation (LV EBD) at rest and who are scheduled for coronary angiography.


Century Trial a Randomized Lifestyle Modification Study for Management of Stable Coronary Artery Disease

Advances in diagnostic imaging with expensive technologies and reimbursement policies that favor illness intervention rather than primary and secondary prevention have resulted in rising costs of health care and more people being deprived of its benefits (Sultz 2004, Bodenheimer 2002). In the field of coronary artery disease (CAD) are several ...


The Clopidogrel and Aspirin After Surgery for Coronary Artery Disease

Clopidogrel is a antiplatelet agent and is effective at reducing intimal hyperplasia in animal models of thrombosis.Several large clinical trials have demonstrated that clopidogrel with aspirin can reduce ischemic events and mortality in patients with atherosclerotic disease,therefore the combination of two antiplatelets might be useful to prevent patients received coronary ...


Clinical Application of MDCT in Coronary Artery Disease

Computed tomography is evolving as a tool for noninvasive diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Coronary calcium deposition amount is an established independent coronary artery disease risk factor. However, coronary artery stenosis seldom occurred in the same location as calcium deposition. With the advent of 16-detector-row multislice spiral CT, direct visualization ...


"Salvage Use" of Recombinant Factor VIIa After Inadequate Haemostasis in Complex Cardiac Surgery

11. 3 Methods Synopsis of Study: A multicentred randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of activated recombinant factor VII (rVIIa) in complex cardiac surgery. Study will be conducted at Austin Hospital, Alfred Hospital and Warringal Private Hospital. The study will have two arms: 1. Those who ...


Study Comparing Ticagrelor With Aspirin for Prevention of Vascular Events in Patients Undergoing CABG

For stable patients who underwent coronary bypass operation, Aspirin alone currently represents the gold standard of antiplatelet treatment. The CABG substudy of the PLATO-trial ( comprising more than 1200 patients has convincingly shown a high significant reduction of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality for patients recieving Aspirin and Ticagrelor as compared ...


PIoglitazone for PrEvention of Restenosis in Diabetic Patients

2.Design This is a randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blinded, multicenter centre study.The patients' clinical data will be recorded on case report forms (CRF). 3.Aim of the study To evaluate the efficacy of Pioglitazone (30 mg/daily) therapy on in-stent late luminal loss in T2DM patients treated with sirolimus-eluting stent for a complex lesion. ...


Systemic Treatment With Everolimus for the Prevention of MACE After Bare Metal Stent Implantation

The purpose of the present study is to provide the first in-human safety and efficacy evaluations of systemic oral anti-proliferative Everolimus therapy compared to placebo in patients treated by bare metal stents for significant coronary artery disease. The aim is to reduce Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACEs) including death, coronary ...


The Diagnostic Benefits of the HyperQTM System in ECG Stress Testing

The study population will comprise of 1200 patients referred to stress test in three Maccabi clinics or cardiac medical centers. All patients will perform an ECG stress test with high-frequency ECG recording from conventional 12 leads using BSP's HyperQ™ System. The recording will be done without affecting or interfering with ...
