Start or STop Anticoagulants Randomised Trial (SoSTART)

Bleeding within the skull, also known as brain haemorrhage, affects 3 million people in the world each year. One in five people who survive brain haemorrhage have an irregular heart rhythm called 'atrial fibrillation', which puts them at risk of stroke and other blood clots. Blood-thinning medicines, known as 'anticoagulant' ...


Heparin Requirements in Patients Undergoing Atrial Fibrillation Ablation on Coumadin vs NOACs

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia affecting the US population and accounts for 15% of strokes worldwide. Radiofrequency ablation has become a frequently used therapy for treatment of afib after failure of at least one anti-arrhythmic drug. Pulmonary Vein Isolation (PVI) remains the cornerstone of AF ablation and ...

Phase N/A

Home Hospital for Suddenly Ill Adults

Hospitals are the standard of care for acute illness in the United States, but hospital care is expensive and often unsafe, especially for older individuals. While admitted, 20% suffer delirium, over 5% contract hospital-acquired infections, and most lose functional status that is never regained. Timely access to inpatient care is ...

Phase N/A

Edoxaban and Frailty in Senior Individuals

Aim of the study To assess the efficacy and safety of edoxaban in a cohort of very elderly patients (80 years of age) with NVAF. Edoxaban has never been tested in elderly frail patients. In both sexes, there is a non-linear association between age and frailty. A secondary analysis according ...

Phase N/A

New-Onset Atrial Fibrillation Complicating Myocardial Infarction in ShangHai

In the present study, investigators retrospectively review the medical records of all MI patients who were admitted to the coronary artery unit (CCU) between February 2014 and February 2018. All eligible patients' demographics, clinical, laboratory, echocardiogram, and angiographic data will be collected. As all patients will receive 24-hour consecutive cardiac ...

Phase N/A

Adjunctive Ganglionated Plexus Ablation in Redo-Pulmonary Vein Isolation

Patients with ongoing paroxysmal arrhythmias after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) get incrementally less benefit with redo-PVI. This implies non-pulmonary vein (PV) triggers, which are more challenging to locate. The autonomic nervous system is implicated in the multifactorial pathogenesis of AF but few studies ...


Prevalence of Subclinical Atrial Fibrillation in Heart Failure Patients and Its Relationship With Hospital Readmission

In patients discharged from hospital after an admission for acute heart failure (HF) decompensation, subclinical atrial fibrillation (AF) of 30 minutes or greater in duration is common (at least 15% of patients without prior AF) and is associated with increased risk of re-hospitalization within 30-days. Study Objectives: To evaluate the ...

Phase N/A

TEmporary Spinal CoRd StiMulatIon to PrevenNt Atrial FibrillaTION AFter Cardiac Surgery

The study includes 60 patients. Patients are randomized into 2 groups: coronary artery bypass grafting plus b-blocker treatment (according to guidelines; group I) and coronary artery bypass grafting plus b-blocker treatment (according to guidelines) plus temporary spinal cord stimulation (group 2). Temporary spinal cord stimulation is performed for 3 days ...

Phase N/A

VAscular Closure for Cardiac Ablation Registry (VACCAR)

Vascular Closure Devices (VCD) have been used to achieve hemostasis of arterial access sites following cardiac catheterization procedures. There is extensive literature available supporting the use of these devices for arterial access site closure, showing reduced time to hemostasis, earlier ambulation and reduced length of hospital stay in comparison to ...

Phase N/A

CHAOS Registry Study

INTRODUCTION: About 6-8% of patients undergoing PCI have an indication for long-term oral anticoagulants (OACs) due to various conditions such as atrial fibrillation (AF), mechanical heart valves, or venous thromboembolism. The addition of single or double antiplatelet therapy to OACs therapy results in an increase in bleeding complications (1-4). The ...
