Cardiac Surgery Clinical Trials
Cardiac Surgery is the surgery of heart or its related vessels, performed to cure certain health problems. Cardiac Surgery is one of the critical and complicated surgeries, performed by the cardiac surgeons. Normally, it is prescribed to treat diseases like ischemic heart disease, congenital heart disease and valvular heart disease. Other than normal surgery on heart or vessels, it might also include heart transplants.
With the introduction of modern facilities in performing a Cardiac Surgery, the mortality rate for heart surgeries has reduced significantly. However, there is a risk of neurological damage associated to any type of Cardiac Surgery. Stroke has been noticed to be a common after effect for 2-3% of patients undergoing Cardiac Surgery. So, a patient should stay under regular medical intervention after having this surgery.
Clinical trials for Cardiac Surgery are an important step in the development of new treatments and 28 clinical trials are currently active in the United State for Cardiac Surgery. 33 interventions are being tested in Cardiac Surgery clinical trials. Some Cardiac Surgery clinical trials are being performed and managed in 31 cities by 50 different clinical trial investigators. A total of 2 Phase I, 3 Phase II and 2 Phase III clinical trials are currently active for Cardiac Surgery (the phases represent the different stage in the development of a treatment for a given condition. Learn more about what the different phases of a clinical trial mean and how they differ).
