RESULTS

Found (698) clinical trials

The study objective is to determine if the use of two or more arterial grafts in coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) compared to a single arterial graft is associated with  improved survival. There is no "experimental" procedures being tested in this study. Cardiac surgeons use both arterial and vein grafts ...

Phase N/A

To evaluate the effectiveness of MicroVention Carotid Stent System used in conjunction with the Nanoparasol embolic protection system for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis in patients with elevated risk for adverse events following carotid endarterectomy.  The stent is a self-expanding implant with a rapid exchange delivery catheter. The Nanoparasol ...

Phase

This is a prospective, randomized one to one (1:1), multi-center trial designed to evaluate vessel preparation with Orbital Atherectomy (OA) compared to conventional balloon angioplasty technique prior to stent implantation for the treatment of severely calcified coronary artery lesions.  

Phase N/A

Research study to compare surgery, either a stent, or endarterectomy, and/or intensive medical management. Carotid arteries are the main arteries feeding your brain. The narrowing increases your risk of having a stroke. The narrowing is caused by a thickened area called a plaque.  

Phase N/A

The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment with the Cobra PzF stent with 14 day Dual Anti-Platelet Therapy (DAPT) has a better safety profile compared to standard FDA approved Drug Eluting Stent plus 6-Month Dual Anti-Platelet Therapy in patients undergoing coronary intervention who also require oral ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
