Comparison of Post-operative Pain and Quality of Life Between Subxiphoid and Intercostal VATS for Lung Cancer

Is subxiphoid route VATS surgery better than Intercostal VATS surgery for lung cancer? Video assisted thoracoscopic surgery for lung cancer (VATS) is less traumatic than traditional open surgery for lung cancer. A novel uniportal VATS technique involving a subxiphoid route for thoracic surgery has been occured. It is reported that ...

Fractional Flow Reserve Derived From Computed Tomography Coronary Angiography in the Assessment and Management of Stable Chest Pain

FORECAST is a randomised controlled trial comparing 1400 patients with new onset pain who are assigned to either routine assessment or FFRct assessment. This trial aims to test the hypothesis that FFRct, used as the default screening tool for patients presenting with new onset stable chest pain, would be associated ...

The FOVUS-ER Study: Focused Vascular Ultrasound to Risk Stratify Patients With Chest Pain in the ER

Broad Goal: To demonstrate that focused vascular ultrasound (FOVUS) can accurately risk stratify patients with chest pain in the emergency department (ED). Background and Rationale: Traditional risk assessment focuses on characteristics of the pain, known Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), risk factors, electrocardiogram (ECG), and blood tests to identify active ischemia. ...

Prevention of Chest Pain in Chemo-treated Cancer Patients

This is a prospective, exploratory, randomised clinical trial. Patients with diagnosed cancer that are to be treated with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) will be randomised into standard oncological treatment or a cardiological assessment prior to the 5-FU treatment. The investigators hypothesize that aggressive management of ischemic risk factors in asymptomatic patients will ...

Phase N/A

Coronary Microvascular Function and CT Coronary Angiography (CorCTCA)

According to information provided by the British Heart Foundation, there are approximately 2.3 million men and women living with angina in the United Kingdom (UK). In 2014, there were ~247,363 coronary angiograms performed, mostly for the investigation of known or suspected angina, but only about half of the patients have ...

Phase N/A

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

Acute Chest Pain Imaging in the ED With the Combine CCTA and CT Perfusion

BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE: Due to the subjectivity of clinical symptoms and the indirect nature of established ischemia tests, effective initial triage of patients in the ED with acute new onset chest pain is difficult and leads to a high number of patients that are admitted to the hospital despite not ...

Phase N/A

Exercise as a Life-long Medicine in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease

Exercise training is a core component in cardiac rehabilitation. Exercise adherence is, however, low after rehabilitation and the transition from supervised to unsupervised exercise is problematic for many patients with coronary artery disease. Therefore, it is important to provide extended services to improve exercise adherence and healthy lifestyle changes. The ...

Strict Versus No Fasting Prior to Cardiac Catheterization: A Prospective Evaluation of Safety and Clinical Outcomes

For years it has been common to have patients fast before a cardiac catheterization. It is believed that fasting may lower the risks of upset stomach, vomiting, and aspiration (stomach contents going to the lungs). New findings show that fasting before the procedure may not be needed. This study will ...

Phase N/A

Diagnostic Imaging Strategies for Patients With Stable Chest Pain and Intermediate Risk of Coronary Artery Disease

The primary objective of this prospective pragmatic randomised controlled trial (PRCT) in 3546 patients is to evaluate the possible superiority of a CT-based patient management over an ICA-based management strategy in stable chest pain patients with intermediate pretest probability (10-60%) of coronary artery disease. The primary outcome measure is the ...
