Wall Shear Stress and Neointimal Healing Following PCI in Angulated Coronary Vessels

The past two decades have registered major advances in cardiovascular medicine that have improved patients' survival and quality of life. One area of major research and innovation is the field of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), a non-surgical procedure used to treat a narrowed heart artery with stents. Stents are metallic ...

Phase N/A

Coronary Microcirculatory and Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds

Angina and heart attacks are caused by narrowings in the coronary arteries (blood vessels) supplying the heart. These narrowings can be opened using a balloon and stent (angioplasty). Traditionally, stents are constructed from metal and are permanent. However, newer stents are being constructed from carbohydrate polymers (scaffolds), which allow them ...

A Randomized Controlled Comparison Between One Versus More Than Six Months of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy After Biolimus A9-eluting Stent Implantation

DES are preferred over BMS for most patients, however prolonged dual antiplatelet therapy is required for patients treated with DES for prevention of late or very late stent thrombosis. which increases a risk of major bleeding. BioFreedom is a Biolimus A9-coated stent that consists of a stainless steel stent platform ...

Carotid Atherosclerosis : Innovative Imaging Biomarkers. Study Case-control

Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) constitutes a major health public problem. This represents the second cardiovascular death cause. CVA is ischemic in 80% of cases. Atheroma of large arteries, mainly carotid, is involved in about 20% of cases. After several high grade studies (NASCET, ECST, ACAS, ACST), carotid surgery is based on ...

Vascular Implant Safety and Efficacy Study

Assessment of the safety and clinical performance of a coronary stent system in de novo coronary artery lesions

18F-Flutemetamol and Plaque Vulnerability

Rationale: Amyloid beta (Ab) is mainly known for its role in Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology. However, Ab seems not only to be involved in AD pathology, but also in atherosclerosis, which might explain the remarkable similarities in risk factors between these two pathologies. In vitro studies suggest that a major ...

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

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 ...
