Salvage of Myocardial Infarction Documented by MRI in Patients Undergoing Rescue Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Atherosclerotic disease is responsible for one third of all deaths annually and is a major cause of comorbidities. While atherosclerosis is by itself a benign disease, it often leads to complications such as acute myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation. Rescue angioplasty is indicated if thrombolytic therapy fails. However, the benefits ...

Phase N/A

Telerehabilitation in Coronary Heart Disease

Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death worldwide. Aerobic fitness is related to long-term survival and a reduction in mortality and recurrent nonfatal myocardial infarction in subjects with cardiovascular disease. However, the majority of cardiac patients do not engage in enough physical activity to obtain benefits or in the ...


Prediction of Coronary Artery Disease Severity by Epicardial Adipose Tissue Thickness

epicardial adipose tissue is defined as the adipose tissue between the visceral pericardium and the outer margin of the myocardium which can be considered an endocrine organ that secretes pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines including investigators know, inflammatory response is an important factor in the coronary atherogenesis. Therefore,epicardial ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Titanium-Nitride-Oxide Coated Bio-Active-Stent (Optimax ) to the Drug (Everolimus) -Eluting Stent (Synergy ) in Acute Coronary Syndrome

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most frequent cause of death, accounting for approximately 13% of all deaths. In western countries, the incidence of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is around 77/100 000/year, whereas in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS), the incidence is 132/100 000/year. Thus, the ...


Diagnostic Utility of Contrast Echocardiography for Detection of LV Thrombi Post ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction

People that experience heart attacks ("myocardial infarctions") are at increased risk for stroke, possibly due to formation of blood clots ("left ventricular thrombi"), which may break loose from the heart and travel to other organs. While echocardiography is a test commonly employed for thrombus detection, prior studies have yielded heterogeneous ...

Phase N/A

Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Elderly Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction

The aim of the present study is to investigate the possible effects of supplementation with 1.8 g/day of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality during a follow-up period of 2 years in an elderly population after having experienced an acute myocardial infarction. The hypothesis is that this ...

Phase N/A

Chronic Remote Ischemic Conditioning to Modify Post-MI Remodeling

During a heart attack, an artery carrying blood and oxygen to the heart becomes blocked, which causes damage to the heart muscle. When possible, a clot-busting drug is given or a procedure called angioplasty is performed soon after a heart attack starts, to open up the blocked artery and restore ...

Phase N/A

Myocardial Perfusion Study to Detect Coronary Microvascular Abnormality in Diabetic Patients With Nonfatal Myocardial Infarction

The goal of this study is to use MCE (myocardial contrast/perfusion echocardiography) to study and compare short/long term change of myocardial perfusion abnormality and cardiac outcome in diabetic patients after nonfatal MI (heart attack), who are treated with different glucose control agents.

Phase N/A

Effect and Efficacy of Onyx Zotarolimus-eluting Stent for Coronary Atherosclerosis

Secondary endpoints are Stent thrombosis-24 hours(acute), 30 days(subacute), 1 year(late), every 1 year till 3 years(very-late) after index PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention), Target vessel failure Composite rate of cardiac death and any MI, 3 years Composite rate of all death and any MI Composite rate of all death, any MI, ...

Phase N/A

Coronary Artery Healing and Bioresorbable Scaffold

BACKGROUND Bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS) represent a novel approach during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), which provides transient vessel support with drug-delivery capability without the long-term limitations (very late stent thrombosis) of the metallic drug-eluting stents. Patients with Non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) often feature thrombus-rich lesions with large necrotic core, which ...
