Prognostic Value of Cardiac and Renal Markers in Ischemic Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack

Patients with ischemic stroke or TIA will be included in the 48 hours following the onset of symptoms, in 3 university hospitals.For each patient will be collected - 1 blood sample for the BNP measure in pg/ml - 1 blood sample for the Cystatin C measure in mg/l - 2 ...

Phase N/A

Cardiovascular Disease Screening

This is a screening protocol. This protocol allows two functions: 1) the protocol allows physicians in the Suburban/NHLBI Cardiovascular Imaging program to evaluate patients referred to the program with clinically indicated studies and research studies. 2) It is also designed to determine if patients may be suitable candidates for one ...

Phase N/A

Retrospective Study of the Impact of Drug Eluting Stents

A major limitation of percutaneous coronary stenting compared to coronary artery bypass grafting surgery has been the significantly higher need for repeat revascularization due to restenosis occurring at or near the stent site. By eluting a potent anti-proliferative agent from a polymer coated stent in a time-controlled manner, it has ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Coronary CT Angiography to Invasive Coronary Angiography

40 Patients who are scheduled to undergo coronary angiogram will be recruited at Mount Scopus and Ein Kerem. Patients will be excluded if they have one or more of the following conditions 1. CABG or stent implantation in the past. 2. Atrial fibrillation 3. Contraindication for beta blockers 1. Obstructive ...

Clinical Application of MDCT in Coronary Artery Disease

Computed tomography is evolving as a tool for noninvasive diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Coronary calcium deposition amount is an established independent coronary artery disease risk factor. However, coronary artery stenosis seldom occurred in the same location as calcium deposition. With the advent of 16-detector-row multislice spiral CT, direct visualization ...

Treatment of Coronary Atherosclerosis by Insulin Sensitizers in Insulin-Resistant Patients

Background: Type 2 diabetes and its antecedent, metabolic syndrome, are important risk factors for premature and accelerated atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. However, glycemic control by provision of endogenous or exogenous insulin induced only modest and not statistically significant reduction of the risk of myocardial infarction. We and other investigators have demonstrated ...

Phase

Adiponectin Gene and Coronary Artery Disease

Genetic studies of coronary artery disease, restenosis after angioplasty or stenting, focusing on renin-angiotensin system genes and adiponectin gene, and their interactions.

Phase N/A

Impact of Exercise Training on Endothelial Function in CAD

A total of 20 patients with stable coronary artery disease are prospectively randomized to 4 weeks of exercise training or sedentary lifestyle. Endothelial function of the radial artery is determined by a high-resolution A-mode ultrasound.

Phase

Percutaneous Coronary Angioplasty Compared With Exercise Training in Symptomatic Coronary Artery Disease

The purpose of this study is to compare coronary angioplasty with stent implantation with an exercise rehabilitation program in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD).

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) With Drug-Eluting Stents (DES) Versus Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) for Patients With Significant Left Main Stenosis

Recent technical advances in percutaneous coronary interventions have made it possible to approach patients with coronary lesions formerly considered to be classical candidates for bypass surgery, e.g. patients with left main coronary stenosis. However, it is still unclear whether the good long-term results achieved with the surgical therapy can be ...
