P3AMI Antiplatelet Trial

This is a pilot study by design, which will be nonrandomized in nature. A total of 90 subjects will be included in the study distributed equally into 6 patient groups which have been carefully selected so that all patients will receive antiplatelet drugs as per current accepted NICE guidelines and ...

Post Infarction Exercise Effects on Myocardial Function Assessed by 2D Strain Ultrasound

The main goal of our project is to study and describe the effect of exercise training on systolic and diastolic myocardial function assessed by 2D ultrasound strain after myocardial infarction. Our working hypothesis is that the intrinsic myocardial contractility and relaxation assessed by global longitudinal strain in phase II (or ...

Phase N/A

Acute Myocardial Infarction Quality Assurance Project

Background Patients suffering a myocardial infraction (MI) may have from minimal to extensive myocardial damage. While severe left ventricular (LV) dysfunction that persists beyond the initial 2-3 months of an MI is a predictor of sudden death, the prognostic significance of less severe LV dysfunction after MI is unclear. There ...

Phase N/A

Communicational Program "Trust" to Improve Adherence to Medications

The "Trust" program includes a set of measures aimed at increasing the level of adherence to therapy in patients with myocardial infarction. Differences in adherence rates between patients enrolled in the program and patients undergoing standard outpatient care will be monitored during the study. The study will be conducted according ...

Salvage of Myocardial Infarction Documented by MRI in Patients Undergoing Rescue Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Atherosclerotic disease is responsible for one third of all deaths annually and is a major cause of comorbidities. While atherosclerosis is by itself a benign disease, it often leads to complications such as acute myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation. Rescue angioplasty is indicated if thrombolytic therapy fails. However, the benefits ...

Phase N/A

Telerehabilitation in Coronary Heart Disease

Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death worldwide. Aerobic fitness is related to long-term survival and a reduction in mortality and recurrent nonfatal myocardial infarction in subjects with cardiovascular disease. However, the majority of cardiac patients do not engage in enough physical activity to obtain benefits or in the ...

Prediction of Coronary Artery Disease Severity by Epicardial Adipose Tissue Thickness

epicardial adipose tissue is defined as the adipose tissue between the visceral pericardium and the outer margin of the myocardium which can be considered an endocrine organ that secretes pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines including adiponectin.as investigators know, inflammatory response is an important factor in the coronary atherogenesis. Therefore,epicardial ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Titanium-Nitride-Oxide Coated Bio-Active-Stent (Optimax ) to the Drug (Everolimus) -Eluting Stent (Synergy ) in Acute Coronary Syndrome

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most frequent cause of death, accounting for approximately 13% of all deaths. In western countries, the incidence of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is around 77/100 000/year, whereas in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS), the incidence is 132/100 000/year. Thus, the ...

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

Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Elderly Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction

The aim of the present study is to investigate the possible effects of supplementation with 1.8 g/day of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality during a follow-up period of 2 years in an elderly population after having experienced an acute myocardial infarction. The hypothesis is that this ...
