Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is the most frequent genetic lipoprotein disorder associated with premature coronary artery disease. The goal of this initiative is to create a registry of subjects with FH across Canada. The registry will help clinicians and researchers to determine the burden of disease and the long-term effects of treatment.
Canadian-Australasian Randomized Trial of Screening Kidney Transplant Candidates for Coronary Artery Disease (CARSK)
Patients on the waiting list for kidney transplantation are at risk for coronary artery disease (CAD). The optimal strategy to monitor and maintain the cardiac fitness of these patients is unknown. Currently patients without any symptoms of CAD undergo annual testing to determine if they have disease. This study will determine if screening is necessary.
The objective of C2R is to promote the rapid initiation and completion of enrollment in the CREST-2 randomized clinical trial (clinicaltrials.gov ID NCT02089217). Patients with severe symptomatic and asymptomatic carotid artery occlusive disease will be treated with carotid artery stenting (CAS) performed by experienced and skilled interventionists. Interventionists' eligibility will be determined by a multi-specialty Interventional Management Committee (IMC). Patient eligibility will include patients with standard or high-risk, symptomatic or asymptomatic carotid artery disease.
