Acute Myocardial Infarction clinical trials at UC Health
3 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This study evaluates the use of early mechanical circulatory support in patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock. Patients are treated according to the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative protocol, which emphasizes early identification of cardiogenic shock and rapid delivery of mechanical circulatory support based on invasive hemodynamics. All patients treated in this manner are enrolled in the National Cardiogenic Shock registry.

The investigators will conduct a feasibility study of an enhanced transitional care intervention, that will: 1) automate identification and risk-stratification of patients with CHF and IHD with social vulnerabilities; 2) incorporate a new standardized social vulnerabilities screening tool into clinical care; 3) enable electronic referrals to community resources; and 4) add novel community-based interventions to the existing medically-oriented transitional care intervention that is the standard of care at the study hospital (Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas) and other hospitals nationwide.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of LCZ696 titrated to a target dose of 200 mg twice daily, compared to ramipril titrated to a target dose of 5 mg twice daily, in addition to conventional post-AMI treatment, in reducing the occurrence of composite endpoint of CV death, HF hospitalization and outpatient HF (time-to-first event analysis) in post-AMI patients with evidence of LV systolic dysfunction and/or pulmonary congestion, with no known prior history of chronic HF..
