Incidence of Acute Cerebrovascular Events Using Either Minimized or Standard Cardiopulmonary Bypass Circuit

Coronary artery bypass grafting with extracorporal circulation is established as the golden standard. The conventional cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) system is associated with inflammatory reaction, hemolysis, hemodilution an disturbances of the blood coagulation system. Also it's well known that neurological disturbances caused by embolic material and air bubbles are potential risks ...

Firebird2 Cobalt-Chromium Alloyed Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Registry Trial

[Definition and management of adverse event] Adverse event refers to any undesirable clinical event. It may be caused by devices, rapamycin, procedure related complications, or the adjunctive medications (such as aspirin, clopidogrel, ticlopidine, or other anti-platelet agent) used in this study. Self report of adverse events by patients should be ...

Phase N/A

Rosuvastatin Evaluation of Atherosclerotic Chinese Patients (REACH)

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of rosuvastatin 10-20 mg on carotid atherosclerosis progression in Chinese patients by evaluating the change in the percentage of volume of lipid rich necrotic core (LRNC) using high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after 24-months treatment.

Phase

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Evaluation of Re-endothelization: A Comparison of the Intrepide Stent Versus Taxus

Patients presenting with ACS (Acute Coronary Syndrome) in the emergency department will be screened for clinical eligibility and asked to sign informed consent to the study. A total of 40 patients will be randomized. 20 of them will receive a Trapidil eluting stent (Intrepide™ stent), 20 will receive a Paclitaxel ...

Phase

Everolimus-Eluting Stent for Bifurcation Coronary Lesions: Comparison of Simple Versus Complex Techniques

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the treatment of true bifurcation lesions with the XIENCE V stent using the simple strategy (stent in main vessel and provisional T-stenting in the side branch) compared to the complex strategy (stent in main vessel and T-stenting ...

Phase

Endothelial Dysfunction in Subjects With History of Premature Coronary Artery Disease

The aim of this prospective study is to investigate the prevalence of endothelial dysfunction in subjects with family history of premature coronary heart disease. At the same time, the effect of atorvastatin in treating subclinical endothelial dysfunction in those patients will be evaluated.

Phase

Prevalence of Coronary Artery Disease in the Siblings of Premature Coronary Heart Disease

The aim of this prospective study is to investigate the prevalence of coronary artery disease using computed tomography with family history of premature coronary heart disease

Phase N/A

Anti-inflammatory Effect of Atorvastatin in Atherosclerotic Plaques Assessed by FDG-PET Imaging

The purpose of this study is to determine whether HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, atorvastatin attenuates inflammation in atherosclerotic plaques detected by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose(FDG) PET.

Phase

COMPETE: A Clinical Evaluation of Chrono Carbostent Carbofilm Coated Stent

The COMPETE study is a prospective,randomized,two-arm multi-center clinical trial comparing two commercially available coronary stents: Chrono Carbostent Carbofilm™ Coated vs Driver/Micro-Driver Coronary Stent System. In this study, 204 subjects will be included (2:1 randomization Chrono:Driver/Micro Driver) in 6 Italian sites.

Phase

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 ...
