Identification of Dominate Stressors in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

Hypothesis: Identification of events and conditions considered stressful by the cardiopulmonary bypass patient would allow the professional team to determine which stressors are amendable to intervention and tailor patient care accordingly in order to improve future patient care experience in the intensive care unit. Research Question: What are the dominant ...

Phase N/A

Uremic Toxins in the ICU: Patients After Cardiac Surgery

Study of the kinetics of uremic toxins in the ICU patients with acute renal failure, in order to optimize the dialysis dose: patients after cardiac surgery.The sampling of blood and dialysate will be done during dialyses with different durations (4, 6 and 8h)

Phase N/A

Hyperspectral Imaging Pre and Post Endovascular Intervention

This will be a nonrandomized, nonblinded, prospective observational study to correlate the results obtained with the traditional measures of success of endovascular revascularization of peripheral arteries for the treatment of chronic limb ischemia; i.e., ABPI, PVR with oxyhemoglobin (OxyHb) and deoxyhemoglobin (DeoxyHb) measurements obtained with a new imaging device manufactured ...

Phase N/A

The eSVS (TM) Mesh External Saphenous Vein Support Trial

The objective of the eSVS™ Mesh Saphenous Vein Support Trial is to prospectively evaluate the clinical safety and efficacy of the eSVS™ Mesh for the treatment of Saphenous Vein Graft (SVG) Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) versus SVG CABG without an eSVS™ Mesh. The eSVS™ Mesh External Saphenous Vein Support ...


Thrombelastogram in Patients Receiving Antiplatelet Medication Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

Study Design: Prospective observational study with blinded assessment of study endpoint variables. Collection of information concerning study endpoints will be performed by the investigator blinded to the results of preoperative testing of platelet function. The information will be collected from 60 patients undergoing cardiac surgery in the Department of Cardiac ...

Phase N/A

Rehabilitation and Outcome for Patients on LVAD Support

The multi-module intervention program for patients on LVAD support includes nutrition management, home-based ergometer training program, psychosocial support and neurocognitive screening. The nutrition management and physical reconditioning program will be supplemented by psychosocial support targeting the risk of increased stress, anxiety, and depression level. Moreover, standardized neurocognitive screening procedures will ...

Phase N/A

Full Disclosure Observational Cardiac Rhythm Documentation Follow-up After Surgical Atrial Fibrillation Therapy

24 hour Holter monitoring (24HM) is commonly used to assess cardiac rhythm after surgical therapy of atrial fibrillation. This "snapshot" rhythm documentation leaves a large diagnostic window of non recorded atrial arrhythmias and as such a large amount of uncertainty in follow-up result assessment. To improve accuracy of rhythm surveillance ...

Phase N/A

Gene Expression Profiling in Subjects With Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation After Cardiac Surgery

Atrial fibrillation is a type of irregular heartbeat that is common after having heart surgery. There may be many different reasons why some people get atrial fibrillation after their heart surgery. These reasons may include that a person is older or that he/she is taking certain types of medications before ...

Phase N/A

Intravenous Lidocaine and Postoperative Outcomes After Cardiac Surgery

Subjects undergoing cardiac surgery are randomized into one of two groups. - Group 1: Intravenous Lidocaine Group - Group 2: Intravenous placebo Group Either Lidocaine or placebo is administered throughout surgery and 24 hours after surgery. Patients in both groups will undergo quality of life assessments and functional recovery assessments ...

Phase N/A

Medication Adherence Enhancement in Heart Transplant Recipients

Medication-related non-adherence increases the risk of rejections and associated graft loss after solid organ transplantation. A randomized controlled intervention will use adherence enhancing strategies out of a larger sample of 300 heart transplant recipients. Non-Adherence will be assessed by patients' self-report and based on immunosuppression level. All non-adherent patients will ...
