Implementation of CYP2C19 Genotyping to Guide Antiplatelet Therapy

Dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor inhibitor represents the standard of care treatment for the prevention of major adverse cardiovascular events in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Currently, 3 oral P2Y12 receptor inhibitors (clopidogrel, prasugrel, and ticagrelor) are available for clinical use. Clopidogrel remains the most ...

Phase N/A

The Greek AntiPlatElet Atrial Fibrillation Registry.

All consecutive patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention over 1 year period will be screened for participation. Discharge antithrombotic medication will be at the discretion of the treating physician. Follow-up visits will be performed at 1, 6 and 12 months post-percutaneous coronary intervention by telephone contact or personal interview. All outcome ...

Phase N/A

Supporting Patients Undergoing HIgh-Risk PCI Using a High-Flow PErcutaneous Left Ventricular Support Device (SHIELD II)

Prospective, randomized, multi-center, open-label trial of the HeartMate PHP at up to 100 sites in the US. Control device will be any Abiomed Impella device approved for use in high-risk PCI. Nonrandomized roll-in phase: Each site must first enroll and treat up to 6 patients (up to 3 PHP and ...

Phase N/A

Low Dose Ticagrelor Versus Low Dose Prasugrel in Patients With Prior Myocardial Infarction

This is a prospective, randomized, single blind, single center, crossover study. Eligible patients undergoing P2Y12 receptor antagonist therapy before screening will undergo a 14-day minimum washout period before randomization. Following screening/washout period (visit 1), patients will be randomized (visit 2, time 0) in 1:1 fashion to either prasugrel 5 mg ...

Phase

Topical Nitroglycerine Treatment for Radial Artery Spasm Prevention

Background Vascular access site complications (VASC) during cardiac catheterizations are significantly higher in transfemoral access compared to transradial access. Patient comfort and shorter length of stay are additional advantages favoring radial access, contributing to the trend of increasing adoption of radial access for cardiac catheterizations. Main disadvantage in radial access ...

Phase

Evaluation of the First Second and New Drug-Eluting Stents in Routine Clinical Practice

Consecutive patients receiving New DES without a mixture of other DES

Phase N/A

Impact of Daylight on Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction

Damage to the heart caused by a myocardial infarction (heart attack) occurs most often during the early morning hours (6AM). Thus, the involvement of the circadian system (circa= approximately day) has been suggested. The circadian system in humans or animals is based on the rotation of the earth with day ...

Phase N/A

Multi-modality Imaging in Acute Myocardial Infarction

This is a prospective, open-label, single center registry. The study is designed to characterize plaque (i.e., assess vulnerable plaque features such as plaque tears, plaque thickness, plaque volume, and lipid content in plaque) in heart arteries in patients who have suffered a recent acute heart attack, and who have blockages ...
