Evaluating the Role of Thrombin in Saphenous Vein Graft Failure After Heart Bypass Surgery

The saphenous vein, which runs from the ankle to the groin along the inside of the leg, is commonly used as a graft for people undergoing a CABG surgery. The vein is removed from the leg and reattached to the heart to create a detour around the blocked part of ...

Preoperative Assessment of Aortic Valve Stenosis and Coronary Artery Disease

Until now invasive coronary angiography has established itself for the assessment of symptomatic aortic valve stenosis. Literature shows a good correlation between MSCT, MRI, TTE and TEE for evaluating the severity of the aortic valve stenosis. The dual-source computed tomography (DSCT) is capable of assessing coronary arteries with a high ...

SCRIPPS V: Intracoronary Brachytherapy for Recurrent Restenosis After Multiple Drug-Eluting Stents

This is an investigator-initiated protocol examining the effectiveness of intracoronary brachytherapy using the Novoste beta-emitting catheter for recurrent stenosis after treatment with multiple drug-eluting stents. While intracoronary brachytherapy has been used for this purpose by clinicians for some time, data supporting this clinical decision-making is lacking. Currently, when cardiologists find ...

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

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

Impact of Acarbose on Abnormal Glucose Regulation in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease (AAA Trial)

Acarbose suppresses the postprandial increase in plasma glucose levels by inhibiting the activities of alpha-amylase and alpha-glucosidase involved in digestion and absorption of carbohydrates in the intestine. A clinical study involving patients with type 2 diabetes demonstrated that acarbose decreased the post-load glucose level and improved glycosylated hemoglobin control. A ...

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

Effect of BNP (Brain Natriuretic Peptides) on Endothelial Dysfunction Induced by Coronary Angioplasty

Patients receiving BNP or nitroglycerin (IV) during the angioplasty procedure. 24 h after the procedure, vascular reactivity will be re-examined using the brachial artery flow-mediated dilatation study. Blood assays for ET-1, pro-BNP, and various inflammatory markers will be checked before and 24 h after the procedure. It is our hypothesis ...

Phase

Coronary Stenting and Coronary Bypass Grafting at the Same Time in a Specialty Built Operating Room

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in the United States and becomes more common as the population ages (American Heart Association, 2003). The symptoms of CAD may not become perceptible until the condition has advanced to a severe and serious stage, which might explain the large ...

Biorepository: Indiana Health Study

Study Aim: The purpose of this study is to create an extensively annotated bio-repository platform for hypothesis-driven research that will lead to advancements in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases common to the population of Indiana. The first phase of this research platform will be created by collecting blood ...
