Exercise Training Associated With Inspiratory Muscle Training in Heart Failure

The investigators hypothesize that aerobic exercise training associated with respiratory muscle training will cause additional benefits in the autonomic control and respiratory function compared to isolated exercise training or respiratory training in chronic heart failure patients.

Phase N/A

Contribution of Endothelin-1 to Exercise Intolerance in Heart Failure

Specific Aim 1 will determine the direct effect of vascular endothelin-1 (ET-1) on skeletal muscle vasoconstriction in HF and age-matched controls. Intra-arterial infusion of the ETA subtype receptor will be undertaken to pharmacologically probe disease-related changes in the ET-1 pathway at rest and during exercise. It is hypothesized that ET-1-mediated ...

Phase N/A

Tolvaptan for Advanced or Refractory Heart Failure

Despite its demonstrated efficacy and tolerability, Tolvaptan remains underutilized for the treatment of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) in many centers. Post-hoc analysis suggests that Tolvaptan may provide optimal outcomes in patients with more advanced heart failure (HF) including those with cardiorenal syndrome, marked hyponatremia and severe congestion, or a ...

Cardiac Rehabilitation and Noninvasive Ventilation in Heart Failure

BACKGROUND: Heart failure (HF) is a cardiovascular syndrome with enormous impact on public health by high morbidity and mortality rates that are associated. Studies show that changes in striated skeletal muscle of those individuals, possibly caused by progressive physical inactivity, contribute to the construction of the pathophysiology of this disease, ...

Phase N/A

Exercise-based Cardiac Rehabilitation Program on Hospitalized Heart Failure Patients Submitted to Cardiac Transplantation

Objective: To evaluate the effects of an early-based cardiac rehabilitation program on the functional capacity, inspiratory muscular strength and clinical outcomes in hospitalized heart failure patients before and after heart transplantation. Method: 30 hospitalized heart failure patients awaiting cardiac transplantation will be selected and randomized in 2 groups: conventional group ...

Phase N/A

Noninvasive Real-time Intracardiac Pressure Measurements Using Subharmonic Ultrasound

This study will use contrast echocardiography to assess the accuracy of a new non-invasive imaging method for subharmonic aided pressure estimation (SHAPE) compared to simultaneously acquired intra-cardiac pressures measured invasively during cardiac catheterization. This study is designed to verify that contrast echocardiography using the SHAPE method, already proven in a ...

Phase

EntrestoTM (LCZ696) In Advanced Heart Failure (LIFE Study)

Patients with advanced heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) have extremely high morbidity and mortality with 1 year outcomes of death and hospitalization of approximately 50%. For the most advanced heart failure patients, the evidence base for medical treatment is limited with consensus guidelines recommending consideration for either cardiac ...

Phase

Clinical Utility of Subcutaneous Furosemide in Patients Presenting With Early Signs of Fluid Overload

Investigational Product: Furosemide Injection, 8 mg/mL, (total dose =80 mg) administered subcutaneously by the sc2Wear Furosemide Infusor using a biphasic profile with 30 mg over the first hour and then as 12.5 mg per hour over the subsequent 4 hours. Participants may be prescribed a total of 3 days initial ...

Phase

Influenza Vaccine To Prevent Adverse Vascular Events (RCT-IVVE)

Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. There is recent evidence that infection due to influenza may precipitate vascular events such as myocardial infarctions and strokes. There is some evidence that influenza vaccination may prevent such events but the data are inconclusive. The investigators propose a randomized ...

Phase

Syncardia 50cc TAH-t as a Bridge to Transplant

Heart failure is the reduced ability of the native heart to pump blood and maintain normal bodily function. Heart transplantation is the standard of care treatment for end-stage heart failure but the supply of donor hearts is insufficient to meet the need and many patients are not eligible for transplantation ...
