  • A Comparison of Fractional Flow Reserve-Guided Percutaneous Coronary Intervention and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery in Patients With Multivessel Coronary Artery Disease

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to determine whether Fractional flow reserve (FFR, (coronary pressure wire-based index for assessing the ischemic potential of a coronary lesion)-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD) will result in similar outcomes to coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG).

  • EARLY TAVR: Evaluation of TAVR Compared to Surveillance for Patients With Asymptomatic Severe Aortic Stenosis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Edwards SAPIEN 3/SAPIEN 3 Ultra Transcatheter Heart Valve (THV) compared with clinical surveillance (CS) in asymptomatic patients with severe, calcific aortic stenosis.

  • International Study of Comparative Health Effectiveness With Medical and Invasive Approaches (ISCHEMIA)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of the ISCHEMIA trial is to determine the best management strategy for higher-risk patients with stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD). This is a multicenter randomized controlled trial with 5179 randomized participants with moderate or severe ischemia on stress testing. A blinded coronary computed tomography angiogram (CCTA) was performed in most participants with eGFR ≥60 mL/min/1.73m2 to identify and exclude participants with either significant unprotected left main disease (≥50% stenosis) or those without obstructive CAD (<50% stenosis in all major coronary arteries). Of 8518 participants enrolled, those that had insufficient ischemia, ineligible anatomy demonstrated on CCTA or another exclusion criterion, did not go on to randomization. Eligible participants were then assigned at random to a routine invasive strategy (INV) with cardiac catheterization followed by revascularization, if feasible, plus optimal medical therapy (OMT) or to a conservative strategy (CON) of OMT, with cardiac catheterization and revascularization reserved for those who fail OMT. SPECIFIC AIMS A. Primary Aim The primary aim of the ISCHEMIA trial is to determine whether an initial invasive strategy of cardiac catheterization followed by optimal revascularization, if feasible, in addition to OMT, will reduce the primary composite endpoint of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, resuscitated cardiac arrest, or hospitalization for unstable angina or heart failure in participants with SIHD and moderate or severe ischemia over an average follow-up of approximately 3.5 years compared with an initial conservative strategy of OMT alone with catheterization reserved for failure of OMT. B. Secondary Aims Secondary aims are to determine whether an initial invasive strategy compared to a conservative strategy will improve: 1) the composite of CV death or MI; 2) angina symptoms and quality of life, as assessed by the Seattle Angina Questionnaire; 3) all-cause mortality; 4) net clinical benefit assessed by including stroke in the primary and secondary composite endpoints; and 5) individual components of the composite endpoints.

  • Mediators of Atherosclerosis in South Asians Living in America

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Nepali, and Sri Lankan) individuals have high rates of cardiovascular disease that is not explained by traditional cardiovascular risk factors. Though South Asians represent over one-quarter of the world's population, there are no longitudinal studies in this high-risk ethnic group. The investigators aim to establish a longitudinal study of South Asians at three United States centers to identify risk factors linked to subclinical atherosclerosis and incident cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this study is to understand the causes of heart disease and stroke in South Asians and compare these causes to those in other United States ethnic groups.

  • Smarter Care Virginia

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Low-value care is defined as patient care that provides no net benefit to patients in specific clinical scenarios, and it can cause patient harm. Prior research has documented high-rates of low-value care in Virginia, and this work has helped to inspire a Virginia government-sponsored quality improvement initiative to reduce low-value care. Funded by a $2.2 million Arnold Ventures grant, six large health systems in Virginia volunteered to partner with the Virginia Center for Health Innovation (VCHI) to reduce use of seven low-value health services (three preoperative testing measures, two cardiac screening measures, one diagnostic eye imaging measure, and one peripherally inserted central catheter [PICC] measure). These health systems include nearly 7,000 clinicians practicing across more than 1,000 sites. VCHI is implementing a step-wedge cluster-randomized physician peer-comparison feedback quality improvement intervention to reduce the use of these seven low-value services. VCHI will provide education, quality improvement training, and financial resources to each site, and VCHI will use the Milliman MedInsight Health Waste Calculator to create the peer comparison reports using the Virginia all payer claims database (APCD). Of note, the primary purpose of the initiative is to improve quality of care for Virginia residents and this initiative is not being done for research purposes, and step-wedge randomization is done to both ease logistical workload on VCHI and clarify impact of intervention (IRB exempt). Nevertheless, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) team plans to rigorously study and publish the impact of this intervention across the state of Virginia, which is why the UCLA team is preregistering the initiative. The UCLA team will use the Virginia APCD to evaluate the impact of the intervention. Because the APCD has a 1 year time-lag of data collection, the initial results of the impact of the intervention will not be available until August 2020 at the earliest.

  • TandemHeart Experiences and MEthods (THEME Registry)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study is intended to be a multicenter, prospective observation registry. By collecting prospective descriptive data, provide insight into disease defining characteristics resulting in the clinical decision to use TandemHeart® or LifeSPARC™ System for mechanical support and enhance knowledge of best practice regarding clinical management, weaning and removal/exit strategies.
