Optimal Delay Time to Initiate Anticoagulation After Ischemic Stroke in Atrial Fibrillation

Long-term oral anticoagulation is standard for secondary stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib). However, there is limited data and no consensus on the timing of when to initiate anticoagulation therapy, and concern that starting too soon risks symptomatic hemorrhagic transformation. These data are derived almost exclusively from heparins ...

Phase

A.Fib Emergency Department Study Atrial Fibrillation

This study is a multi-centre, multi-provincial, patient survey using mixed methods. 778 patients will be enrolled from 9 centres in 3 provinces from academic, urban, and rural centres to achieve geographical and health system heterogeneity. The planned duration of the entire study (enrollment through follow-up) is approximately 12 months. Patients ...

Phase N/A

Blood Pressure Assessment in Atrial Fibrillation

This is a cross-sectional study including patients with permanent atrial fibrillation. Assessment will include: clinic blood pressure measurements (mercury sphygmomanometer and automated oscillometric device) 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring determination of various serum markers and cardiac ultrasound. evaluation of a 24h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring device (Microlife WatchBPO3) in terms ...

Phase N/A

A Novel Healthcare Information Technology Tool to Improve Care in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation

This study is a prospective, observational study designed to evaluate the use of the Geneva Healthcare Patient Population Management platform to detect AF (atrial fibrillation) in patients with CIEDs (cardiovascular implantable electronic devices) in the emergency room setting, and assess the feasibility of sub-specialty cardiac electrophysiology (EP) care of these ...

Phase N/A

Catheter Ablation vs. Medical Therapy in Congested Hearts With AF

The purpose of the trial is to compare two different approved treatments for recently diagnosed AF: anti-arrhythmic medications and AF ablation. The study will be conducted to determine if one treatment is more effective than the other for patients with AF and heart failure. About 220 subjects with newly diagnosed ...

Phase

Prospective Record Of the Use of Dabigatran in Patients With Acute Stroke or TIA

The multi-center, prospective PRODAST study is investigating patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) who experienced an ischemic stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA) recently ( 1 week) both with and without previous oral anticoagulation. It consists of a baseline visit and a 3 months central follow-up for patients who ...

Phase N/A

Predictors for Recurrence of Atrial Fibrillation After Electrical Cardioversion

In patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF), electrical cardioversion is very effective in restoring sinus rhythm if modern, biphasic cardioverters are used. However, approximately 50 per cent of the successfully cardioverted patients experience a recurrence of AF within a few weeks. Therefore, valid predictors for AF recurrence would be of ...

Phase N/A

Atrial Fibrillation Prediction Trial.

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a common arrhythmia with a prevalence of 1.5-2%. This prevalence increases significantly after 80 years of age. In the presence of the Arrhythmia the risk of stroke increases five fold while the congestive heart failure and the mortality rates are increasing significantly also.After the appearance of ...

Phase N/A

Dynamic Changes in SDF-1 Levels in Acute and Stabilized Heart Disease

The study considers changes in SDF-1 levels in response to treatment of cardiac disease (myocardial infarction, heart failure or atrial fibrillation). SDF-1 levels will be measured at the acute stages of the disease, after stabilization and at longer term as detailed below. Levels of SDF-1 will be correlated to the ...

Phase N/A

Thromboembolic and Bleeding Risk Stratification in Patients With Non-valvular Atrial Fibrillation

Patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AF) have an excessive risk of arterial thromboembolic disease and heart failure, resulting in higher rates of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in this population. Prevalence and incidence of Non-Valvular AF (NVAF) is rapidly increasing across developed countries. cardiovascular (CV) and all-cause mortality rates related to AF ...
