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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

The Addition of Cardiac CT to Exercise Treadmill Testing in the Evaluation of Angina

CT-EXTRA is a randomized clinical trial that will compare a novel diagnostic strategy employing the addition of coronary MSCT angiography to exercise treadmill testing with a standard diagnostic strategy of exercise treadmill testing for the outpatient evaluation of low-intermediate risk patients with possible angina. This is the first randomized clinical ...

Phase N/A

Sex Differences in Coronary Pathophysiology

Women are more likely than men to have chest pain suggestive of angina but normal-appearing coronary arteries on angiography, which ultimately imparts a significant morbidity/mortality and economic burden. Recent evidence suggests that women commonly have endothelial and microcirculatory dysfunction, as well as diffusely distributed atherosclerosis--disorders that can cause chest pain, ...
