Found (9) clinical trials

A clinical study of the TAXUS® Liberté® Paclitaxel-Eluting Coronary Stent System which was previously approved by the FDA. Patient Inclusion Criteria: >years of age Patients that need a stent in the coronary arteries Patient Exclusion Criteria: Cannot receive the protocol required dual antiplatelet therapy Currently taking warfarin or similar anticoagulant ...


The treatment options this study will compare are: (1) Hybrid Coronary Revascularization [HCR] (a combination of surgery and catheter procedures to open up clogged heart arteries) and (2) Percutaneous Coronary Intervention [PCI] (catheter procedures alone to open up clogged heart arteries). There are no new or "experimental" procedures being tested ...


Effect of Ketamine on Analgesia Post-Cardiac Surgery

This is a randomized, controlled, double-blind pilot study to determine the effectiveness of intraoperative Ketamine administration on pain after coronary artery bypass surgery. Patients will be randomized to receive ketamine or saline prior to incision, with a continuous infusion throughout surgery. Opioid dose administered in the first 48 hours will ...


Antiarrhythmic and Cardioprotective Effects of Atorvastatin Versus Magnesium Sulfate in Cardiac Valve Replacement Surgery

Arrhythmia is a common complication after cardiac valve surgery. Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is the most common type of arrhythmia after cardiac surgery. It has different leading causes, including myocardial injury, inadequate myocardial protection, the effect of cardiopulmonary bypass, and electrolyte imbalance. Beta blockers, amiodarone, and magnesium sulfate are used ...


Sitagliptin for Hyperglycemia in Patients With T2DM Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment with sitagliptin reduces the frequency and severity of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and the need for continuous intravenous insulin infusion (CII) in the intensive care unit (ICU) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) ...


Ancillary Effects of Dexmedetomidine Sedation After Cardiac Surgery

The investigator goal is to evaluate the effects of intraoperative and postoperative dexmedetomidine sedation (versus placebo after cardiac surgery.


A Clinical Comparison of Three Bronchial Blockers for One-Lung Ventilation in Thoracic Surgery

This is a clinical trial comparing surgical conditions during one-lung ventilation with three different bronchial blockers or with double-lumen endobronchial tubes.


Hydroxychloroquine and Cognitive Function After Surgery

Hydroxychloroquine will be administered preoperatively to 30 patients undergoing cardiac or noncardiac surgery. All patients will undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with gadolinium in the post-operative period before hospital discharge in order to assess blood brain barrier permeability.


Sugammadex and Decreased Time to Extubation

Primary Efficacy Objective: To demonstrate faster time to extubation after arrival in the cardiothoracic ICU in patients having a CABG who receive Sugammadex 2mg/kg as compared to placebo. Hypotheses: We hypothesize that the use of Sugammadex for reversal of residual neuromuscular blockade in adults undergoing CABG, AVR or CABG/AVR combination ...
