Coronary Sinus Catheter Placement

Currently there are four registered clinical trials ongoing or finished in the area of coronary sinus occlusion.

  1. Safety And Feasibility Study Of Pressure-controlled Intermittent Coronary Sinus Occlusion (PICSO) In Patients With Coronary Artery Disease Undergoing Native Vessel Intervention - COMPLETED (Link: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01308125?term=PICSO&rank=1)
  2. Pressure Controlled Intermittent Coronary Sinus Occlusion in Patients With ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction Treated by Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention - RECRUITING  (Link: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01493037?term=PICSO&rank=2)
  3. Evaluation of a Local Preconditioning Effect in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery - RECRUITING  (Link: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01482780?term=PICSO&rank=3)
  4. Effects of Coronary Sinus Occlusion on Myocardial Ischemia (Pilot Study) - COMPLETED (Link http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01625832?term=PICSO&rank=4)

This warrants the expertise of coronary sinus catheterization. More details can be found here (link: http://ht.edwards.com/scin/edwards/sitecollectionimages/products/mininvasive/millerarticlear06683.pdf).
