Comparing Bivalirudin Versus Heparin/ GP IIB/IIA in Patients Undergoing PCI

Anti-thrombotic therapies have enhanced the safety of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In addition to aspirin, heparin and platelet glycoprotein (Gp) IIB/IIIA receptor inhibition have been used as the reference strategy to reduce the incidence of ischemic complications during coronary interventions 1. However, the success of this strategy is limited by ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

VIVID - Valvular and Ventricular Improvement Via iCoapsys Delivery - Feasibility Study

Functional MR is a frequent outcome of ischemic heart disease or dilated cardiomyopathy. Patients with functional MR generally have normal valvular structures complicated by left ventricular dysfunction. Left ventricular dysfunction will often create geometric distortions that prevent complete leaflet coaptation, rendering the valve incompetent. Changes that will induce functional MR ...

Platelet Function Assessment for Atherothrombotic Patients

Methods and Expected Results—In this prospective follow-up study, we will assess the predictive power of different assays of platelet function (PFA-100, plasma levels of von Willebrand factor, P-selectin, soluble CD40 ligand, and myeloid-related protein-8/14, and ADP-induced P-selectin [CD62P] expression on platelets by flow cytometry) before and after high-dose (600 mg) ...

Identifying Vulnerable Plaques in Blood Vessels of the Heart Using a New Imaging Technique

Atherosclerosis is a condition in which deposits of fat, cholesterol, and other substances build up along the inner walls of arteries; these deposits are known as plaque. As plaque builds up, it increases the risk of heart attack. Previous autopsy studies have shown that vulnerable plaques, a type of atherosclerotic ...

Surgical Manipulation of the Aorta and Cerebral Infarction

Stroke is one of the most devastating complications following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with an overall incidence ranging from 2.0 % to 3.2 %. The presumed etiology for the majority of strokes after CABG is atheroembolism from the diseased aorta ascendens caused by surgical manipulation. Off-pump coronary artery bypass ...
