Study on the Incidence of Early Deep Vein Thrombosis After Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter Insertion

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is one of the most important complications after Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) insertion. This study goals are to understand when and why DVT develops. Patients will be studied with ultrasound for 4 weeks after PICC insertion, one visit a week. The final outcome of PICCs ...

Phase N/A

Validation of Different Risk Assessment Strategies in Normotensive Pulmonary Embolism

A risk stratification in hemodynamically stable patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is deemed necessary to guide patient management. Right ventricular dysfunction (RVD), identified by echocardiography or computed tomographic angiography (CT), and cardiac biomarkers are well recognized risk factors for adverse events in normotensive patients with PE. However, neither of ...

Improving the Stewardship of Diagnostic Imaging Resources in Alberta Emergency Departments

Background Imaging technology for the rapid diagnosis of medical conditions is an indispensable tool in the emergency department (ED). However, increasing and inappropriate use of costly and potentially dangerous imaging is a growing healthcare concern. The long-term health risks of radiation exposure, and the resources consumed by increased use, pose ...

The Appropriate Anticoagulation Duration for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease With Pulmonary Thromboembolism

Anticoagulation is the most important treatment for pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE). The thromboembolism risk is especially high in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbations. However, there's no agreement on the most appropriate duration of anticoagulation in COPD with PTE to balance the risk of recurrence of thrombosis and bleeding. ...

Measure of Plasma Tissue Factor to Predict a Venous Thromboembolism in Primitive Cancer of Lung

The aim of the study is to evaluate if the plasma activity of the tissue factor at the time of the diagnosis of a lung cancer, before any treatment, or after the treatment of induction (surgery or two first cures of chemotherapy), can be a predictive factor of venous thromboembolism ...

Safety of Low Dose IV Contrast CT Scanning in Chronic Kidney Disease

The use of radio contrast medium enhances the image quality of CT scans. However, contrast CT is avoided in patients with CKD for fear of contrast-induced nephropathy. The current standard of care for these patients is CT without contrast. Taking advantage of fast scanning capabilities of modern CT scanners (64-Multi-Detector ...


Observatory of Invasive Procedures and Bleeding in Patients Treated With New Oral Anticoagulants

The management of critical situations is difficult for several reasons: - First, there is significant intra- and inter-individual variability in the pharmacokinetics of NOACs, which is further heightened in the critical setting by drug interactions with other agents that interfere with P-GP (P-GLYCOPROTEIN)and cytochrome P4503A4 in patients who are often ...

Evaluation of the Use of Apixaban in Prevnetion of Thromboembolic Disease in Patients With Myeloma Trated With iMiDs

MYELAXAT trial is multicentre, open trial which aims to evaluate the incidence of venous thromboembolic event (VTE) and the incidence of hemorrhagic complications. All patients with Myeloma treated with iMiDs and require thromboprophylaxis for 6 months, using an oral anti-Xa anticoagulant, Apixaban, in a preventive scheme, 2.5 mg x2/day


Prophylaxis of Thromboembolic Complications Trial: Thromboprophylaxis Needed in Below Knee Plaster Cast Immobilization for Ankle and Foot Fractures

Study Design: A prospective, randomised, controlled, single blinded, multi-centre trial. Intervention: After meeting the inclusion criteria stated above and obtaining informed consent, patients will be randomly assigned to three groups: one receiving Nadroparine (2850 IE anti-Xa = 0,3 ml, given once daily), one receiving Fondaparinux (2,5 mg = 0,5 ml, ...


Thromboprophylaxis and Bariatric Surgery

This trial is an assessment of the efficacy of three thromboprophylaxis regimens in two types of bariatric surgery. - gastric banding and gastric bypass on anti-Xa activity levels The study includes two groups of 150 patients scheduled for gastric banding or gastric bypass. Assessment of anti-Xa levels before and 4 ...
