Cardiogoniometry for Detecting Coronary Artery Disease by CT Angiography

Cardiogoniometry is a technique to process and evaluate vectorcardiography from regular ECG acquisitions. Vectorcardiography has a long tradition in cardiology for providing comprehensive information on myocardial function and integrity. Compared to standard electrocardiography, vectorcardiography has shown to be more sensitive to detect structural and ischemic heart disease. Unfortunately, the interpretation ...

Phase N/A

Biologically Modified Saphenous Vein Transplants for Improved CABG Outcomes

Double blind study with Lactated Ringers Solution and Lactated Ringers Solution with Arginine soaked for 10 minutes prior to grafting on the coronary arteries.

Phase

Identifying Vulnerable Plaques in Blood Vessels of the Heart Using a New Imaging Technique

Atherosclerosis is a condition in which deposits of fat, cholesterol, and other substances build up along the inner walls of arteries; these deposits are known as plaque. As plaque builds up, it increases the risk of heart attack. Previous autopsy studies have shown that vulnerable plaques, a type of atherosclerotic ...

Abnormal Coronary Vasomotion in Patients With Suspected Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

In patients with chest pain and/or shortness of breath coronary artery disease (CAD) is suspected depending on the pattern of symptoms and the electrocardiogram (ECG). Coronary angiography is the method of choice to verify this suspicion. If the patient coronary arteries on coronary angiography are totally normal, one can only ...

Intensive Blood Pressure and LDL Lowering in Diabetic Patients With Coronary Artery Disease

Prevalence of type 2 diabetes in Asia seems to be almost epidemic and establishment of preventive strategy against macrovascular as well as microvascular diseases are warranted because of higher cardiovascular risk in diabetic patients even without history of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. Benefit of lowering low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol down ...

Phase

A Single Center Clinical Evaluation of Same Sitting Hybrid Revascularization: Robotic Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for the Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease

The study population will consist of patients with multivessel coronary artery disease requiring CABG with suitable anatomy for combination CABG and PCI of non-bypassed arteries. The primary endpoint of this feasibility study is a 30-day composite of major adverse clinical events including death, repeat revascularization, stroke and/or myocardial infarction. The ...

Phase N/A

Mainz Intracoronary Database. The Coronary Slow-flow and Microvascular Diseases Registery

Patients included in the registry will be contacted by telephone at 3,6,9, 12 months and 2, 5, 10 years after the procedure. In case coronary slow flow is shown at the index procedure, 39ml of blood will be drawn for further studies.

Phase N/A

Yonsei OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) Registry for Evaluation of Efficacy and Safety of Coronary Stenting

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been recently studied for evaluation of coronary stenting. Because of high resolutions, several reports have shown that OCT is appropriate for evaluating neointimal tissue after coronary stent implantation. Also, the strut coverage and the characterization of neointimal tissue can be accurately evaluated. Furthermore, OCT-defined coverage ...

Phase N/A

Use of Glidesheath Slender to Reduce Radial Artery Occlusion and Vascular Access Site Complications Following Transradial Coronary Angiography

Based on previously reported studies the rates of radial artery occlusion using a standard 6 Fr. sheath is around 5-10%, compared to the single feasibility study of the Glidesheath Slender by Aminian et al (see reference in the citations), the rate of radial artery occlusion was reported 0.88%. This study ...

A Reduced-carbohydrate Diet High in Monounsaturated Fats in Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an increasing global problem, especially in developing countries. T2D is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), where hyperglycemia is especially important for microvascular damage. Previous studies in T2D on reduced carbohydrate intake has shown beneficial effects on glycemic control, indicated by reduction ...
