RESULTS

Found (65) clinical trials

Eligibility Criteria: Inclusion Criteria:•Age > or equal to 18 years of age•History of non-paroxysmal form of AF as defined by the HRS/EHRA/ECAS Consensus Statement:◦Persistent AF shall be defined as continuous AF that is sustained beyond seven days. Episodes of AF in which a decision is made to electrically or pharmacologically ...

Phase

Some people can develop an abnormal heart beat known as "Atrial fibrillation" or "AF" that puts them at risk of developing clots in the heart. Those clots can travel in the blood circulation to the brain and cause a brain attack ("a stroke"). To prevent those clots forming, blood thinners ...

Laser Ablation Study for trEatment of atRial Fibrillation (LASER)

This protocol aims at assessing the efficacy of performing catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) with laser catheters versus performing it with radiofrequency (RF) catheters. In order to study laser catheter ablation efficacy, MRI analysis of the lesions 3 months after the procedure will be performed in both groups. MRI ...

Cognitive Impairment Related to Atrial Fibrillation Prevention Trial

This will be a prospective parallel study including two hundred atrial fibrillation patients > 65 years old and scoring CHADS2VASc > 1. Patients will be randomized to receive Warfarin (INR between 2 and 3) or Dabigatran (150 mg twice daily) for two years. After one year and at the end ...

Registry for Estimation of Warfarin and Rivaroxaban in Atrial Fibrillation Patients With Coronary Stent Implantation

Antiplatelet therapy is indispensable for the prevention of stent thrombosis in patients who underwent coronary artery stenting. Similarly, anticoagulant therapy is essential for the prevention of cardiogenic embolism including cerebral infarction in AF patients. However, the combined antithrombotic therapy has been reported to increase the risk of major bleeding for ...

Rivaroxaban Compared to Vitamin K Antagonist Upon Development of Cardiovascular Calcification

A multi center, prospective, controlled, open, randomized, interventional clinical trial blinded concerning outcome measurements with a two- arm parallel group design will be performed to investigate the association of rivaroxaban compared to coumadin/phenprocoumon treatment for OAT in patients with atrial fibrillation and / or pulmonary embolism regarding the development and ...

Phase

Prevention of Silent Cerebral Thromboembolism by Oral Anticoagulation With Dabigatran After Pulmonary Vein Isolation for Atrial Fibrillation

Oral anticoagulation treatment (OAC) following clinically successful catheter abla-tion of atrial fibrillation (AF) is controversial. Recent guidelines recommended con-tinuation of OAC in all patients with CHA2DS2VASc score 2 even if there is no evidence of recurrent AF (Camm JA et al., Eur Heart J 2012). The net clinical ben-efit of ...

Optimal Anticoagulation for Higher Risk Patients Post-Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation Trial

This is a prospective, open-label, randomized trial to investigate whether a strategy of ongoing, long-term oral anticoagulation with rivaroxaban 15 mg daily is superior to a strategy of antiplatelet therapy, ASA 75-160 mg, alone in preventing cerebral embolic events in moderately high risk patients following successful catheter ablation for atrial ...

Phase

A Study of Apixaban in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation Not Caused by a Heart Valve Problem Who Are at Risk for Thrombosis (Blood Clots) Due to Having Had a Recent Coronary Event Such as a Heart Attack or a Procedure to Open the Vessels of the Heart

Patients will be recruited from either inpatient coronary care or general medical units, or recruited from outpatient cardiology offices. Masking Apixaban: Open label. VKA: Open label. Acetylsalicylic acid film coated tablet: Double Blinded. Placebo matching Acetylsalicylic acid film coated tablet: Double Blinded.

Left Atrial Thrombus Reduction - Effect of Dabigatran Versus Phenprocoumon

Bakground and study rationale: Left atrial (LA) thrombi are found in 2.5 - 18% of subjects with atrial fibrillation (AF) depending on the subject population. Subjects with LA thrombi have a particularly increased risk for cerebral and peripheral embolism. Consequently, oral anticoagulation is recommended in those subjects. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) ...
