Cardiac Surgery Clinical Trials

A listing of Cardiac Surgery medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.

RESULTS

Found (52) 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 ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase

Registry for Quality Assessment With Ultrasound Imaging and TTFM in Cardiac Bypass Surgery

The purpose of the registry is to collect information regarding the number and type of coronary artery bypass (CAB) surgical procedure changes that are made based on intraoperative guidance information using transit time flow measurements (TTFM) and ultrasound image capabilities provided with the Medistim device.

Phase N/A

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

Preconditioning With Sevoflurane and Propofol in Patients Undergoing Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery

The main aim of this study is to compare markers of cardiac injury (Troponin I), inflammatory response and platelets function during minimally invasive mitral valve repair or replacement (MIMV) via right mini-thoracotomy in two standard anaesthetic regimes: - Volatile conditioning (sevoflurane) used during induction (preconditioning) and during the operation as ...

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 ...
