Remote Ischemic Preconditioning and Postoperative Myocardial Ischemia

High-risk abdominal surgery is frequently complicated by postoperative complications, such as sepsis, pneumonia or anastomotic dehiscence. Asymptomatic myocardial injury after abdominal surgery (MINS) predicts non-cardiac complications. The etiology of MINS in abdominal surgery patients is unknown. Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is a physiologic mechanism that exposes tissues to brief periods ...

Phase N/A

Classification of Carotid Plaque With Computed Tomography With Fast kVp (Kilovolt Peak)-Switching Technique

Patients planned for CEA (carotid endarterectomy) due to carotid stenosis will be examined with one extra CT and MRI before surgery. The CEA specimen is stored in the BiKE-registry (a biobank of operated carotid plaque at the Karolinska Institute). In that registry the patients will be given a personal code ...

Phase N/A

Genoss DES Prospective Multicenter Registry

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the main stream of treatment of coronary artery disease. Drug-eluting stents (DES) have dramatically reduced the rates of restenosis and target lesion revascularization (TLR) compared with bare-metal stents (BMS). Newer-generation DES with a durable polymer such as Xience (Abbott, US) and Resolute (Medtronic, US) were ...

Phase N/A

Whole-Heart Myocardial Blood Flow Quantification Using MRI

All subjects will receive cardiac MRI scans to diagnose CAD or CMD. MR perfusion scans will be performed twice per subject: once at rest, and once after administration of a pharmacologic stress agent. There will be a >15 minute delay between the two scans. A gadolinium-based contrast agent will be ...

Phase N/A

Low Maintenance Dose Ticagrelor Versus Clopidogrel in Diabetes Patients Undergoing PCI

Patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) are characterized by platelet hyperreactivity and reduced pharmacodynamic (PD) effects to several oral antiplatelet agents, including clopidogrel. In addition to the hyperreactive platelet phenotype, impaired drug metabolism as well as increased platelet turnover rates may contributed to impaired clopidogrel-induced antiplatelet effects in DM patients. These ...

Phase

Revascularization in Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation

The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of routine FFR-guided complete revascularization with PCI compared to conservative management in patients with concomitant coronary artery disease who are undergoing TAVI.

Phase N/A

Asan Multivessel Registry

The purpose of this study is to evaluate long-term prognoses of patients with multivessel coronary disease treated medically or surgically or percutaneously in real world practice.

Phase N/A

Effect of Smoking on Pain and Atherosclerosis in Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis

The study will recruit patients with rheumatoid arthritis (age 20-60 years) at rheumatology clinics in Vstra Gtaland. All patients meeting the inclusion criteria will be informed of the study in a letter and later contacted by the study coordinator and if interested booked for a study visit at the rheumatology ...

Phase N/A

The Hellenic Postprandial Lipemia Study (HPLS)

The study aims to recruit 1200 patients that are characterized either as high risk or very-high risk for Coronary Heart Disease. It is assumed that an equal number of high risk and very high risk patients will be included in the study. Patients will be invited to participate in the ...

Phase N/A

Implementation of a Trimodal Prehabilitation Program as a Preoperative Optimization Strategy in Cardiac Surgery

Pre-habilitation programs that combine physical training, nutritional support and emotional reinforcement have demonstrated efficacy as presurgical optimization strategies in the context of digestive surgery. The experience in patients at risk for cardiac surgery, one of those associated with higher morbidity and mortality, is anecdotal. Main objective: to evaluate the feasibility, ...
