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

Characterization of Changes in Ventricular Mechanics in Response to Lexiscan Stress Using Tagged Cine Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The purpose of this study is to measure the changes in cardiac function during a Lexiscan pharmacologic stress test using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging test.

Phase

VEST Venous Graft External Support Pivotal Study

Clinical significance: Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) remains the gold standard treatment for patients with multi-vessel coronary artery disease. Despite the proposed benefits of multiple arterial grafts, autologous saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) are still the most frequently used bypass conduits in CABG. Progressive SVG failure after CABG remains a key ...

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

Management of High Bleeding Risk Patients Post Bioresorbable Polymer Coated Stent Implantation With an Abbreviated Versus Prolonged DAPT Regimen

The study objective is to determine in a high bleeding risk patient population undergoing PCI under standardized treatment (within current guidelines and instructions for use and including the bioresorbable polymer coated Ultimaster sirolimus-eluting stent), whether abbreviated DAPT is non-inferior to prolonged DAPT regimen in terms of NACE within 12 months, ...

Phase N/A

Correlation Study of Imaging Data Acquired During CABG With Data Acquired in the Cath Lab

Visual assessment of a coronary artery narrowing (called stenosis) seen on angiography is conventionally used to infer how likely the stenosis will limit blood flow (called ischemia) under conditions of increased demand (e.g exercise). This is based on animal work and data from humans with simple single vessel disease with ...

Phase N/A

Implementation of a Trimodal Prehabilitation Program as a Preoperative Optimization Strategy in Cardiac Surgery

Pre-habilitation programs that combine physical training, nutritional support and emotional reinforcement have demonstrated efficacy as presurgical optimization strategies in the context of digestive surgery. The experience in patients at risk for cardiac surgery, one of those associated with higher morbidity and mortality, is anecdotal. Main objective: to evaluate the feasibility, ...

Phase N/A

Water Intake Associated With Aerobic Exercise in Coronary

The need to restore water losses resulting from physical activity has become established and diffused into international consensus for healthy individuals or high-performance athletes. However, the influence of fluid replacement when administered during and after exercise on cardiorespiratory parameters, cardiac autonomic modulation, and subjective perceptions of effort and pain of ...
