Heart Attack (Myocardial Infarction) Clinical Trials

A listing of Heart Attack (Myocardial Infarction) 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 (107) 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 ...

COmprehensive Remote Ischemic Conditioning in Myocardial Infarction

ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. Rapid admission and acute interventional treatment combined with modern antithrombotic pharmacologic therapy frequently establish complete reperfusion and acutely stabilize the patient, but the reperfusion itself adds further to the damage in the myocardium compromising the long-term ...

Transfusion Trigger After Operations in High Cardiac Risk Patients

Background: Despite the need for clinically appropriate use of blood products in the postoperative setting, blood transfusion practices are empiric and variable. In the absence of a physiologic test that can effectively guide transfusion-related decisions after an operative intervention, hemoglobin-based transfusion triggers have been suggested as clinical tools. Traditionally, clinicians ...

Vorapaxar as an Add-On Antiplatelet Therapy in Patients With and Without Diabetes Mellitus

Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor inhibitor, more frequently clopidogrel, represents the standard of care for the long-term secondary prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients with myocardial infarction (MI) or peripheral arterial disease (PAD). However, rates of ischemic recurrences remain high, in part due to the ...

Phase

Testing a Community Intervention to Increase Aspirin Use

Proposed is a demonstration and implementation project to increase the appropriate use of aspirin for primary prevention of acute myocardial infarction and stroke in the population of Minnesota. Although significant progress in the reduction of acute myocardial infarction and stroke is apparent, these cardiovascular disorders continue as the leading causes ...

Hydroxychloroquine for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Events in Myocardial Infarction Patients - a Safety Pilot Trial

Anti-rheumatic medications decrease cardiovascular mortality in rheumatoid arthritis patients, based mainly on their anti-inflammatory effect. No studies have addressed their effect on preventing recurrent cardiovascular events among non-rheumatic patients. In the pilot phase 200 myocardial infarction patients will be recruited during their index visit to the study hospitals. Patients will ...

Phase

Effect of Vitamin D on Ventricular Remodeling in Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction (VITDAMI)

To study the effect of calcifediol on left ventricular remodeling, mineral metabolism, plasma levels of several prognostic biomarkers and on endothelial function after an anterior myocardial infarction.

Phase

Comparision Between Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time Versus Anti-Xa Activity in Heparin Monitoring

Aim of the study Based on available data, a randomized trial aimed at comparing the efficacy and safety of monitoring UFH treatments using aPTT and anti-FXa activity in patients treated with fulldoses of UFH could validly be carried out. Study design Primary objectives: safety and efficacy Secondary objectives: efficiency and ...

Phase

Shortened Aggrastat Versus Integrilin in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

The purpose this study is to assess whether a tirofiban regimen of a high-dose bolus plus a shortened infusion duration compared to label-dosing eptifibatide in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is associated with a non-inferior composite rate of death, PCI-related myocardial infarction, urgent target vessel revascularization or in-hospital major ...

Phase

Vorapaxar in Patients With Prior Myocardial Infarction Treated With Prasugrel and Ticagrelor

Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor inhibitor represents the standard of care for the long-term secondary prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients with myocardial infarction (MI). The novel P2Y12 receptor inhibitors prasugrel and ticagrelor are characterized by more prompt, potent, and predictable antiplatelet effects compared with ...
