RESULTS

Found (185) clinical trials

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 ...

Efficacy of Nitric Oxide Administration in Attenuating Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury During Neonatal Cardiopulmonary Bypass

Around 7500 neonates born yearly in the United States have complex congenital heart disease that require surgical repair in the first few days of life. The complexity of the surgical repair requires long periods of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and the use of intermittent periods of low flow or complete circulatory ...

Phase N/A

Echo-guided Hemodynamic Management Strategy in Elderly Patients Undergoing Noncardiac Surgery

Elderly patients are the fastest growing surgical population and present with increased risk of postoperative cardiac problems, especially congestive heart failure. Diastolic dysfunction is common in the elderly population and increases the risk of major adverse cardiac events after surgery. This project will use dynamic measurements of diastolic filling pressures ...

Phase N/A

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) ...

Phase

A Study of Hemopure to Enhance Tissue Preservation During Cardiopulmonary Bypass Surgery

The primary objective is to determine the safety and feasibility of administering Hemopure® (HBOC-201) to reduce myocardial necrosis, as measured by CK-MB enzyme elevation, and enhance tissue preservation during cardiopulmonary bypass.

Phase

Randomized Trial of a Liberal Versus a Restrictive Transfusion Strategy in Elderly Cardiac Surgery Patients

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a less restrictive strategy of red blood cell transfusion in elderly patients following coronary bypass surgery results in enhanced postoperative recovery as determined by quality of life assessment, exercise tolerance and clinical outcomes. Two postoperative transfusion strategies: 1. Liberal - transfused ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning in Patient Undergoing Cardiac Bypass Surgery

Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is currently the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the developed world, and is set to become the leading cause of death in the world by the year 2020, according to the World Health Organisation. Patients with severe IHD that require coronary artery bypass graft ...

Phase

Dexmedetomidine and Outcomes of Cardiac Surgery (DOCS)

There are about 694,000 open-heart surgeries performed in US each year. The major complication rates for valve plus coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedure are as high as 30.1% in Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) reports. Postoperative delirium, infection, acute renal failure (ARF) and major adverse cardiocerebral events (MACE) which ...

Phase

Telerehabilitation in Coronary Heart Disease

Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death worldwide. Aerobic fitness is related to long-term survival and a reduction in mortality and recurrent nonfatal myocardial infarction in subjects with cardiovascular disease. However, the majority of cardiac patients do not engage in enough physical activity to obtain benefits or in the ...

Phase

A Phase I Study of Dexmedetomidine Bolus and Infusion in Corrective Infant Cardiac Surgery: Safety and Pharmacokinetics

The purpose of this Phase I study is to determine the safety of a drug called dexmedetomidine (DEX) as part of a balanced general anesthetic and sedative strategy for neonates and infants undergoing corrective cardiac surgery that requires the use of cardiopulmonary bypass for congenital cardiac problems. This study will ...
