The objectives of this registry are to assess the use of the thrombin-specific anticoagulant bivalirudin during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in a real life setting. In particular, data will be collected to analyze experiences of bivalirudin use in respect to the following objectives;
- examine the aspects of safety and effectiveness of bivalirudin
- gain experience regarding the characteristics of patients in bivalirudin treatment
- evaluate the handling of bivalirudin and its practicality
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Retrospective
Thrombin-specific Anticoagulant Bivalirudin During Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
Published on BioPortfolio: 2010-07-15T17:00:00-0400
Bivalirudin is widely used as an anticoagulant to reduce the risk of bleeding in PCI perioperative period. Additionally, 15.7%-32.7% patients have diabetes mellitus who undergo percutaneou...
The purpose of this study is to compare levels of clot formation (platelet aggregation), markers of heart muscle damage, and inflammation in two groups undergoing percutaneous coronary ste...
Primary Objective: To assess the safety of bivalirudin as an alternative anticoagulant therapy for patients with new or previous heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) / heparin-induced ...
This is a prospective, randomized, single-blind, active drug controlled multicenter clinical research and the study would enrolled a total of 380 AMI patients undergoing percutaneous coron...
Pharmacokinetics and safety of weight based bivalirudin in children
Bivalirudin is a parenteral anticoagulant that elicits its effect through inhibition of both free and clot bound-thrombin. Inhibition of thrombin serves as a unique mechanism for anticoagulation when ...
The efficacy and safety of bivalirudin in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for treatment of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) remains controversial despite recent evidence fro...
Outcomes in elderly and young patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention with bivalirudin versus heparin: Pooled analysis from the EUROMAX and HORIZONS-AMI trials.
Since older age is a strong predictor of not only bleeding but also of ischemic events, understanding the risk:benefit profile of bivalirudin in the elderly undergoing primary percutaneous coronary in...
Systemic anticoagulation with unfractionated heparin is standard of care for patients receiving extracorporeal life support (ECLS); however, an alternative anticoagulant may be necessary when challeng...
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
A vitamin-K dependent zymogen present in the blood, which, upon activation by thrombin and thrombomodulin exerts anticoagulant properties by inactivating factors Va and VIIIa at the rate-limiting steps of thrombin formation.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
