Atherosclerosis Clinical Trials

A listing of Atherosclerosis medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.

RESULTS

Found (342) clinical trials

The treatment options this study will compare are: (1) Hybrid Coronary Revascularization [HCR] (a combination of surgery and catheter procedures to open up clogged heart arteries) and (2) Percutaneous Coronary Intervention [PCI] (catheter procedures alone to open up clogged heart arteries). There are no new or "experimental" procedures being tested ...

Phase

People with Atherosclerotic Lesions are asked to participate in a research study being conducted by Montefiore Medical Center.

Phase N/A

Simultaneous Assessment of FFR and SPECT

Patients who are previously scheduled for diagnostic coronary angiography will be approached for consent to be part of the study. If the patient is found to have one or two vessel disease and it is planned by the interventional cardiologist that FFR will be used, then the previously consented patient ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Atherosclerotic Plaque Characteristics Change by DCE-MRI With Alirocumab

Acute ischemic events caused by atherosclerosis cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) are primarily due to plaque rupture/erosion determined by plaque morphologic characteristics, local composition and inflammation, which can be directly assessed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Prospective carotid MRI studies have demonstrated: (1) plaques with thin or ruptured cap, intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH), ...

Phase

Pilot Study of Pre-Ischemic Conditioning for Intracranial Atherosclerosis

In this prospective randomized pilot study, 10 eligible high-risk subjects with ICAS will be randomized to RLIC (bilateral upper extremity daily for 30 days) plus medical management (n=5) or medical management alone (n=5). The medical management, which is the standard of care, will be started at study enrollment and continued ...

Phase N/A

Statin Recapture Therapy Before Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) requiring coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are still at significant risk for postoperative major adverse cardiocerebral events (15% MACCE rate), with 3% of patients dying within 30 days of surgery. Recent clinical evidence shows that cardioprotection in patients receiving chronic statin treatment can be ...

Phase

Quantitative 13N-Ammonia Cardiac Rest/Stress Digital PET/CT

Cardiac imaging using standard-of-care Nuclear Medicine techniques assess the relative radiopharmaceutical distribution from coronary arteries to cardiac tissue. This standard interpretation however, lacks the clinical utility of modern quantitative techniques that are now routinely obtained during cardiac catheterization, such as fractional flow reserve (FFR). Cardiologists routinely base critical management decisions, ...

Phase N/A

Intracoronary Infusion of Mononuclear Cells Autologous Bone Marrow in Patients With Chronic Coronary Occlusion and Ventricular Dysfunction Previously Revascularized.

This is a randomized, open label prospective clinical trial in which all patients diagnosed with chronic coronary occlusion in the Cardiology Department of Hospital Reina Sofa de Crdoba, who meet inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion shall include and express their accordance with trial participation by signing the informed ...

Phase

Effect of Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) on Subclinical Atherosclerosis

Hypercholesterolemic subjects with subclinical atherosclerosis will be randomized into two groups: standard treatment group and standard treatment plus EECP intervention group. The results of ultrasound examination and markers of inflammations will be compared.

Phase N/A

Miniaturized Extracorporeal Circulation Study

Blood samples will be obtained at the following time points: T0; preoperative after induction of anaesthesia (after insertion of central venous line) T1; after weaning of the ECC prior to protaminization T2; 10 minutes after full protaminization T3; six hours after the end of the ECC T4; 1. postoperative day ...
