Cardiac Ischemia Clinical Trials

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


Found (95) 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 ...


The Elderly ACS II Trial

The objective of this study is to compare reduced-dose prasugrel and standard dose clopidogrel in patients older than 74 years with ACS, including non-ST-elevation (NSTEACS) and ST-elevation (STEMI) patients, undergoing early PCI. The primary endpoint of the trial will be the one-year composite of (all-cause)death, myocardial infarction, stroke and re-hospitalization ...


Incidence of Acute Cerebrovascular Events Using Either Minimized or Standard Cardiopulmonary Bypass Circuit

Coronary artery bypass grafting with extracorporal circulation is established as the golden standard. The conventional cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) system is associated with inflammatory reaction, hemolysis, hemodilution an disturbances of the blood coagulation system. Also it's well known that neurological disturbances caused by embolic material and air bubbles are potential risks ...


Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Evaluation of Re-endothelization: A Comparison of the Intrepide Stent Versus Taxus

Patients presenting with ACS (Acute Coronary Syndrome) in the emergency department will be screened for clinical eligibility and asked to sign informed consent to the study. A total of 40 patients will be randomized. 20 of them will receive a Trapidil eluting stent (Intrepide™ stent), 20 will receive a Paclitaxel ...


Everolimus-Eluting Stent for Bifurcation Coronary Lesions: Comparison of Simple Versus Complex Techniques

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the treatment of true bifurcation lesions with the XIENCE V stent using the simple strategy (stent in main vessel and provisional T-stenting in the side branch) compared to the complex strategy (stent in main vessel and T-stenting ...


Endothelial Dysfunction in Subjects With History of Premature Coronary Artery Disease

The aim of this prospective study is to investigate the prevalence of endothelial dysfunction in subjects with family history of premature coronary heart disease. At the same time, the effect of atorvastatin in treating subclinical endothelial dysfunction in those patients will be evaluated.


COMPETE: A Clinical Evaluation of Chrono Carbostent Carbofilm Coated Stent

The COMPETE study is a prospective,randomized,two-arm multi-center clinical trial comparing two commercially available coronary stents: Chrono Carbostent Carbofilm™ Coated vs Driver/Micro-Driver Coronary Stent System. In this study, 204 subjects will be included (2:1 randomization Chrono:Driver/Micro Driver) in 6 Italian sites.


Efficacy and Safety of Nano+ Polymer-free Sirolimus-Eluting Stent: A Optical Coherent Tomography Study

Eligibility criteria: - 18 to 85 years. - Evidence of myocardial ischemia without raised troponin (e.g. stable or unstable angina, silent ischemia demonstrated by positive territorial functional study). - The patient has a planned intervention of up to two de novo lesions in different epicardial vessels - Lesion(s) must have ...


Optimizing Antithrombotic Care in Patients With AtriaL fibrillatiON and Coronary stEnt (OAC-ALONE) Study

It has been reported that 5-10% of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have concomitant AF. Most of those patients have an indication for OAC therapy to prevent stroke or systemic thromboembolism, and also for APT to prevent ischemic cardiac events, particularly myocardial infarction (MI) due to stent thrombosis (ST). ...


Registry for Estimation of Warfarin and Rivaroxaban in Atrial Fibrillation Patients With Coronary Stent Implantation

Antiplatelet therapy is indispensable for the prevention of stent thrombosis in patients who underwent coronary artery stenting. Similarly, anticoagulant therapy is essential for the prevention of cardiogenic embolism including cerebral infarction in AF patients. However, the combined antithrombotic therapy has been reported to increase the risk of major bleeding for ...
