Heart Attack clinical trials at UCSD

5 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Evaluation of Treatment Strategies for Severe CaLcIfic Coronary Arteries: Orbital Atherectomy vs. Conventional Angioplasty Technique Prior to Implantation of Drug-Eluting StEnts: The ECLIPSE Trial

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This trial will evaluate Orbital Atherectomy compared to conventional balloon angioplasty technique for the treatment of severely calcified lesions prior to implantation of drug-eluting stents (DES).

  • ILUMIEN IV: OPTIMAL PCI

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The objective of this clinical investigation is to demonstrate the superiority of an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)-guided stent implantation strategy as compared to an angiography-guided stent implantation strategy in achieving larger post-PCI lumen dimensions and improving clinical cardiovascular outcomes in patients with high-risk clinical characteristics and/or with high-risk angiographic lesions.

  • Selatogrel Outcome Study in Suspected Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This study will randomize patients recently discharged from the hospital with a confirmed diagnosis of type 1 acute myocardial infarction (Thygesen et al. 2018) and having additional cardiovascular risk factors.

  • Women's Health Initiative Strong and Healthy Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The WHISH trial applies state-of-the science behavioral principles and currently available technologies to deliver a physical activity intervention without face-to-face contact to ~25,000 older U.S. women expected to consent. It includes the National Institute of Aging (NIA) Go4Life® Exercise & Physical Activity materials 3 and WHISH developed targeted materials based on Go4Life® to provide inspirational tips and recommendations about how to achieve nationally recommended levels of PA and overcome barriers to exercise, with a means for self-monitoring and setting personal goals. The intervention builds upon evidence-based behavioral science principles and intervention components that have proven to be effective in increasing PA in older women, with innovative adaptive approaches to tailoring the delivery to meet individual (personal) needs.

  • Heart Attack Research Program- Imaging Study

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The HARP study is a multi-center, diagnostic observational study employing standardized imaging protocols in patients with MINOCA (MI with Non Obstructive Coronary Arteries) to determine the underlying diagnosis in each participant. Participants will be followed for recurrent clinical events, every 6 months, for a maximum of 10 years.
