Eligibility Criteria: Inclusion Criteria:•Age > or equal to 18 years of age•History of non-paroxysmal form of AF as defined by the HRS/EHRA/ECAS Consensus Statement:◦Persistent AF shall be defined as continuous AF that is sustained beyond seven days. Episodes of AF in which a decision is made to electrically or pharmacologically ...

Phase

Randomized On-X Anticoagulation Trial

This is a longitudinal, randomized (randomization to occur at the 3-month follow-up) study comparing the On-X valve on low dose anticoagulation (test group) to concomitant control groups of On-X valves receiving standard Coumadin/aspirin therapy, and also to FDA objective performance criteria (OPC) for heart valve replacement. It is a multicenter ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning in Aortic Valve Replacement Surgery

The study objective is to verify if a non-invasive remote ischemic preconditioning procedure (blood pressure cuff on the arm) is cardioprotective when applied before an aortic valve replacement surgery.

Phase N/A

Quality of Life After Ministernotomy Versus Full Sternotomy Aortic Valve Replacement

This is a single-center, single-blind, all comer, randomized controlled trial. Patients scheduled for isolated aortic valve replacement (AVR) due to aortic stenosis at "Virgen de la Victoria Universitary Hospital", Mlaga, Spain, will be eligible. Ninety-six patients will be randomly assigned to either partial upper sternotomy (ministernotomy, 48 patients) or full ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Dexmedetomidine on Postoperative Renal Function in Infective Endocarditis Patients Undergoing Open Heart Surgery

Acute kidney injury is major complication after open heart surgery. The cause of acute kidney injury following open heart surgery is related to activation of sympathetic nervous system, decrease of renal blood flow, ischemia-reperfusion injury and systemic inflammatory response. Infective endocarditis patients undergoing open heart surgery have systemic inflammatory response ...

Phase N/A

Dabigatran Versus Conventional Treatment for Prevention of Silent Cerebral Infarct in Atrial Fibrillation Associated With Valvular Disease

Amongst different types of cardiac arrhythmia, tachyarrhythmia shows the highest prevalence. The prevalence of AF, which is tachyarrhythmia, is approximately 2% of the entire population and 5% of the population at the age of 60 or older. AF is the cause of approximately 20% of all events of ischemic stroke, ...

Phase

GLP-1 and Hyperoxia for Organ Protection in Heart Surgery

Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) have associated atherosclerotic renal and cerebral disease making these organs especially vulnerable to ischemia during open heart surgery. At the Heart Center at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen the investigators perform more than 1000 open heart surgery operations yearly. The primary indication is CAD with or ...

Phase N/A

Genotype-guided Versus Standard for Warfarin Dosing

Due to narrow therapeutic window, and individual differences in dosage, inappropriate use of warfarin may lead to serious complications and ineffective. Based on the results of the research on the transformation of warfarin pharmacogenomics, this study investigates the clinical application of gene-directed warfarin dose prediction model through the preset dosage ...

Phase N/A

Antiarrhythmic and Cardioprotective Effects of Atorvastatin Versus Magnesium Sulfate in Cardiac Valve Replacement Surgery

Arrhythmia is a common complication after cardiac valve surgery. Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is the most common type of arrhythmia after cardiac surgery. It has different leading causes, including myocardial injury, inadequate myocardial protection, the effect of cardiopulmonary bypass, and electrolyte imbalance. Beta blockers, amiodarone, and magnesium sulfate are used ...
