Found (32) clinical trials

Clinical trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the iCAST™ RX Stent System for the treatment of subjects with resistant hypertension associated with de novo atherosclerotic renal artery disease.

Phase N/A

Prevalence of Chronic Kidney Disease and Its Association With Clinical Outcome in Patients With Coronary Heart Disease

The primary aim of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of chronic kidney disease(CKD) in patients with stable coronary heart disease. The secondary aims include: 1. To evaluate the awareness of CKD in patients with stable coronary heart disease. 2. To find out risk factors that is associated with ...

Phase N/A

Safety of Low Dose IV Contrast CT Scanning in Chronic Kidney Disease

The use of radio contrast medium enhances the image quality of CT scans. However, contrast CT is avoided in patients with CKD for fear of contrast-induced nephropathy. The current standard of care for these patients is CT without contrast. Taking advantage of fast scanning capabilities of modern CT scanners (64-Multi-Detector ...


A Randomized Pharmacodynamic Comparison of Low Dose Ticagrelor to Clopidogrel in Patients With Prior Myocardial Infarction

Taken together the results from CHARISMA and PEGASUS-TIMI54, it appears that physicians may consider extending beyond 1 year or reinitiating treatment with clopidogrel 75 mg od or ticagrelor 60mg bid in patients with a prior MI and features of high ischemic and low bleeding risk. Comparative clinical or pharmacodynamic studies, ...


OHI--Randomized Control Trial to Evaluate Efficacy Acceptability and Perception of Benefit of an Innovative Custom AFO

The investigators propose a randomized control trial to evaluate long term effects and effectiveness of Ankle foot orthoses (AFO) in reducing risk of falling in older adults. Primary Endpoints Characterize the impact of AFO on balance, gait, risk of falling, frailty status, and adverse events Secondary Endpoints Characterize the Impact ...


Renal Stenting With Distal Atheroembolic Protection

This is a randomized trial of patients with an ostial ARAS and refractory hypertension and or renal failure. Patients will be randomized to: (i) renal artery stent placement with distal embolic protection (ii) renal artery stent placement without distal embolic protection To both groups an optimal medical treatment consisting of ...


Comparison of Stenting Versus Best Medical Therapy for Treatment of Ostial Renal Artery Stenosis: a Trial in Patients With Advanced Atherosclerosis

Renal artery stenosis (RAS) usually refers to a disease of the large extra-renal arterial vessels and most frequently is caused by atherosclerotic obstructions. The prevalence of atherosclerotic RAS increases with age, male gender, traditional cardiovascular risk factors (hypertension, diabetes, smoking, hyperlipidemia) and atherosclerotic comorbidities like coronary artery or peripheral artery ...


Renal Blood Flow Measurement With Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

Two investigational chemical tracers, 62Cu-ethylglyoxal bis(thiosemicarbazone) (62Cu-ETS) and 15O-water, will be used in this study to look at how blood moves through the kidneys. The purpose of the study is to see if 62Cu-ETS is effective in showing the blood supply to the kidneys compared to 15O-water. The tracer mixes ...


Acute Kidney Injury in Patients Undergoing Contrast Exposure: VQ vs. CT

Before the study begins, research personnel will do the following to be sure that patients can be in the study: research personnel will talk to the treating physician. research personnel will review the patient medical records, blood and urine tests already done for as usual medical care, and chest X-ray. ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Haemodialysis on the Efficacy of Antiplatelet Agents

The main purpose of our study is to investigate whether haemodialysis itself affects the efficacy of antiplatelet drugs and the effects of two different types of dialysis membranes (polysulfone membranes and polyamide membranes) on antiplatelet efficacy. A total of 60 patients with ESRD and under dual-antiplatelet treatmen for at least ...
