Evaluation of hsTnI in the Management of Patients With Chest Pain in the Emergency Department

Purpose Current standard of care algorithm using high sensitivity troponin T (hsTnT) requires up to 6.5 hours to diagnose an ACS. Data will be stratified based upon time of symptom onset and gender. A health economics and outcome model will be applied using the optimal high sensitivity troponin I (hsTnI) ...

Effect and Efficacy of Xpedition /Alpine Everolimus-eluting Stent for Coronary Atherosclerosis

Secondary endpoints of this study are Stent thrombosis-24 hours(acute), 30 days(subacute), 1 year(late), every 1 year till 3 years(very-late) after index PCI Target vessl failure Composite rate of cardiac death and any MI, 3 years Composite rate of all death and any MI Composite rate of all death, any MI, ...

Phase N/A

Comprehensive Treatment of Angina in Women With Microvascular Dysfunction

Coronary microvascular dysfunction is found to be associated with a significant adverse prognosis. The condition is strongly associated with increased future risk of major cardiovascular events, frequent hospital readmission, continued angina and loss of quality of life compared to the general population. Pathophysiology of microvessel disease: In the heart 95% ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Loading Strategies With Antiplatelet Drugs in Patients Undergoing Elective Coronary Intervention

Patients with stable or clinically unstable (biomarker-negative) angina pectoris who are in need of coronary intervention will be randomly assigned in one of the treatment strategies - 60 mg of prasugrel or 600 mg clopidogrel just prior to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). After PCI all patients will receive clopidogrel 75 ...

Phase

Abnormal Coronary Vasomotion in Patients With Suspected Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

In patients with chest pain and/or shortness of breath coronary artery disease (CAD) is suspected depending on the pattern of symptoms and the electrocardiogram (ECG). Coronary angiography is the method of choice to verify this suspicion. If the patient coronary arteries on coronary angiography are totally normal, one can only ...

Phase N/A

Stress CT Perfusion in Patients With Chest Pain

Background. In the United States, more than 8 million patients require emergency department evaluation for acute chest pain every year. The estimated cost for these evaluations is > $10 billion and the loss of economic productivity is likely far greater. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is a popular alternative to diagnostic ...

Phase N/A

Cardiac SPECT With Rotating Slant Hole Collimator

Myocardial perfusion SPECT is recognized as an effective clinical diagnostic imaging technique in the assessment of myocardial perfusion and coronary artery diseases. It is the most important clinical application of SPECT imaging techniques. The goal is to conduct a clinical pilot study to evaluate the use of RMSSH SPECT in ...

Phase N/A

The Usefulness of HyperQ Recordings for the Early Diagnosis of Acute Coronary Syndrome in Patients Presenting With Chest Pain

Introduction: Chest pain is the leading cause of urgent admission to the Emergency Department (ED) in western countries.Acute Coronary Syndrome(ACS) continues to be among the most difficult to predict or diagnose. Misdiagnoses may lead to discharge of patients with ACS, who should have been admitted as well as costly unnecessary ...

Phase

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

Coronary Computed Tomographic Angiography in Emergency Department Chest Pain Patients at Intermediate Risk of Acute Coronary Syndrome

Justification: Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is the clinical manifestation of acute myocardial ischemia induced by coronary artery disease (CAD). Although most patients presenting with chest pain to the Emergency Department (ED) can be stratified into "high risk" or "low risk" chest pain algorithms, patients at "intermediate risk" are more difficult ...
