RESULTS

Found (99) clinical trials

The treatment options this study will compare are: (1) Hybrid Coronary Revascularization [HCR] (a combination of surgery and catheter procedures to open up clogged heart arteries) and (2) Percutaneous Coronary Intervention [PCI] (catheter procedures alone to open up clogged heart arteries). There are no new or "experimental" procedures being tested ...

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 ...

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 ...

ShorT and OPtimal Duration of Dual AntiPlatelet Therapy-2 Study for the Patients With ACS

The drug-eluting stents (DESs) are currently used in the majority of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. On the other hand, the problems of the first-generation DES (late adverse events, such as very late stent thrombosis) have been pointed out. Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) has become a standard regimen after DES ...

Coronary Artery Disease Progression in Patients With Prediabetes

Patients undergoing PCI and IVUS pullback for the target vessel will be enrolled in a prospective study. Before PCI and at 24 month follow up fasting blood will be collected for glucose, HbA1c, insulin, C peptide, lipid profile assessment and the homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) calculation. Patients' ...

Mineralocorticoid Receptor Antagonism Clinical Evaluation in Atherosclerosis Trial

Atherosclerotic disease, or hardening of the arteries, is characterized by the thickening of the arterial walls due to fatty deposits in wall and inflammation in the wall of arteries. High cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and genetics play an important role in developing clinical symptoms of atherosclerosis disease. The ...

APixaban vs. PhenpRocoumon in Patients With ACS and AF: APPROACH-ACS-AF

Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) presenting an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and undergoing PCI require a triple therapy with a combination of oral anticoagulation (OAC) and dual anti-platelet therapy. Current guidelines recommend a regimen consisting of aspirin, clopidogrel and an oral anticoagulant. Although effective in preventing recurrent ischemia, triple therapy ...

Local Anesthesia in Radial Catheterization

A total of 444 consecutive patients, who are referred for elective coronary angiography to 1st Cardiology Department cathlab, with the suspicion of coronary artery disease (CAD) will be enrolled in this study. Exclusion criteria are acute coronary syndrome, previous ipsilateral transradial approach, Raynaud's syndrome, abnormal renal function with or without ...

Second-generation Drug-eluting Stents in Diabetes

This is an investigator initiated randomized trial, performed under the auspices of the Spanish Society of Cardiology. It is a multicenter, international, parallel, randomized 1:1 (amphilimus-eluting stents vs zotarolimus-eluting stents) clinical trial performed exclusively in patients with diabetes mellitus. The study has an "all-comers diabetics" design. The primary-endpoint is target ...

EArly Discharge After Transradial Stenting of CoronarY Arteries in High-Risk Patients of Bleeding

OBJECTIVES The primary objective is to compare the incidence of major bleeding and anemia 24h post-PCI in patients at high-risk of bleeding after transradial PCI with heparin or bivalirudin.
