Novel Biomarkers of Thrombotic Risk

Treatment of patients who have had a heart attack with drugs that prevent formation of blood clots has been shown to reduce the patient's risk of subsequent cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke, and death. Because new drugs have increased treatment options, the development of tests that can guide ...

Phase N/A

Cologne Register of Wearable Defibrillator (CRWD)

The wearable cardiac defibrillator (WCD) is an alternative to the implantation of cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) for patients at high risk for sudden cardiac death (mostly bridging therapy). The Cologne register of wearable defibrillator (CRWD) is a prospective register for all patient with an indication of wearable defibrillator.

Phase N/A

Risk Stratification in Patients With Preserved Ejection Fraction

1000 asymptomatic post-MI patients>40%, at least 40 days till 3 years post-MI, revascularized or without needing further revascularization (in any case without any evidence of ischemia) will be enrolled. The patients will be divided into two categories: 1. Asymptomatic patients with revascularized STEMI (remaining stenoses in non culprit vessels 40% ...

Vascular Events In Surgery patIents cOhort evaluatioN - Cardiac Surgery

Worldwide over 2 million adults (>30,000 Canadians) undergo heart surgery annually. Although heart surgery provides important survival benefits, it is associated with potential major complications such as death, stroke, and heart attack. There is promising evidence that measurement of heart injury markers after surgery will identify patients at risk of ...

Phase N/A

Advantageous Predictors of Acute Coronary Syndromes Evaluation (APACE) Study

Background: The triage of patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome in the emergency room is a time-consuming diagnostic challenge. Triage and management of patients with low probability of coronary artery disease often cause excessive hospital costs. Therefore high sensitive early markers for myocardial damage are needed for more rapidly rule ...

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

Diagnostic Utility of Contrast Echocardiography for Detection of LV Thrombi Post ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction

People that experience heart attacks ("myocardial infarctions") are at increased risk for stroke, possibly due to formation of blood clots ("left ventricular thrombi"), which may break loose from the heart and travel to other organs. While echocardiography is a test commonly employed for thrombus detection, prior studies have yielded heterogeneous ...

Phase N/A

Molecular Determinants of Coronaruy Artery Disease

The purpose of this study is to discover genes that may cause Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) or Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). Many human diseases are inherited or passed from parent to child in families. These diseases occur because of damage to a gene(s), the genetic material that is also called DNA. ...

Phase N/A

Investigation of Genetic Risk of Cardiovascular Disease in Prospective Cohort Study

Cardiovascular disease is a complex multifactorial and polygenic disorder that is thought to result from an interaction between a person's genetic make up and various environmental factors. Although many studies have revealed that several genetic variants increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, the results of these studies remain controversial. The ...

Phase N/A

Circulating Markers for Ischemic Heart Disease

Hypotheses, Objectives and Aims: Hypotheses:Caspase-3, cleaved and activated, and dystrophin can be detected in human circulation. The levels of these two markers are elevated during acute myocardial infarction. Furthermore, the levels of these two proteins are greater in those who develop heart failure than those who do not. Objectives: - ...
