The ADAPT Study: Assessment of the DiAgnostic Performance of DeepVessel FFR in SuspecTed Coronary Artery Disease

Sep 10th, 2021 - Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease, and it is the leading cause of death worldwide in both men and women. CAD happens when the coronary arteries become hardened and narrowed, which is due to the buildup of cholesterol-containing deposits-plaque on the inner vessel wall. As the plaque grows, less blood can flow through the arteries due to the vessel narrowing....

Stem Cell Spinal Cord Injury Exoskeleton and Virtual Reality Treatment Study

Sep 10th, 2021 - The Stem Cell Spinal Cord Injury Exoskeleton and Virtual Reality (SciExVR) study is based on the progress that researchers have made treating spinal cord injury (SCI) with bone marrow derived stem cells (BMSC). While major improvements have remained elusive with other approaches, modest benefits have been achieved. The use of subarachnoid BMSC provided via intrathecal injection has resulted in ...

Effects of Homocysteine in Myocardial Infarction Patients in a Tertiary Care Hospital of Pakistan

Sep 10th, 2021 - Excess of low density lipoproteins, high blood pressure, obesity, excess of blood sugar levels, smoking and sedentary life style are the known modifiable risk factors causing cardiovascular disease specifically Coronary disease. There can be some other substances which can additionally affect the human cardiac physiology as well i.e. high levels of Homocysteine molecule in the blood. The advers...

Craniectomy Protocol

Sep 10th, 2021 - The objective of this protocol is to evaluate the quality of life and functional disability in the long term (2 years after craniectomy) in subject's victims of malignant Sylvien stroke who received a decompressive craniotomy in the acute phase. Patients who have given their consent to be evaluated at least two years after their stroke and their operation in a single visit by clinical examinati...

Rota China Registry

Sep 10th, 2021 - Rotational atherectomy (RA) facilitates percutaneous coronary intervention for complex de novo lesions with severe calcification. Some observational studies and a small randomized trial indicated that a strategy of routine RA did not conferred reduction in restenosis or MACE, but these studies are limited by missing follow-up, insufficient power to compare outcomes, and confounding factors in t...

HELicobacter Pylori Screening to Prevent Gastrointestinal Bleeding in MI Patients

Sep 10th, 2021 - Background: Despite progressively reduced mortality over the last decades, cardiovascular disease remains the most common cause of death in both men and women in Sweden and the world. Ischemic heart disease with its acute presentation myocardial infarction (MI) accounts for the majority of cases, approximately 25000 hospitalized patients in Sweden annually. In addition to early revascularizatio...

Neural Interfaces to Monitor Fatigue and Sleepiness in the Cathlab

Sep 10th, 2021 - The investigators will prospectively record and analyze Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals from 5 interventional cardiologists and 2 fellows in training in all consecutive procedures at Ferrara University Hospital. Considering the hypothesis of independence of the working shifts, given the heterogeneity of their structure in terms of procedures' number and type and their distance in time, it is...

Rescues On Reperfusion Damage In Cerebral Infarction by Nelonemdaz

Sep 10th, 2021 - Neu2000 was designed as a multi-target neuroprotectant preventing both the NMDA receptor, a Ca2+ -permeable glutamate receptor, and free radicals, two major routes of brain cell death in stroke. Neu2000 is a moderate NR2B-selective NMDA receptor antagonist and spin trapping molecule (=free radical scavenger or antioxidant). Therapeutic potential of Neu2000 has been well demonstrated in four ani...

Experience of Relatives and Intensive Care Units Caregivers of Controlled Donation After Circulatory Death

Sep 10th, 2021 - While withdrawal of life-sustaining therapies (WLST) decision occur significantly more frequently in intensive care units (ICUs), controlled donation after circulatory death (cDCD) evolves end-of-life care and produces a new end-of-life (EOL) model: EOL care now includes the opportunity to donate organs and tissues after death. During cDCD, the patient is still alive while OD process is being d...
