Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators And Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Heart at 1.5 Tesla

The presence of an implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) is currently considered an absolute contraindication to MR imaging, and most patients with PM are excluded from having MRI. As a result from studies such as MADIT I, MADIT II, SCDHeft etc. the number of patients with ICDs has been continuously growing ...

Phase N/A

Therapy With Verapamil or Carvedilol in Chronic Heart Failure

Heart failure, irrespective of its etiology may be viewed as a progressive disorder initiated by a different events and sustained by a multifaceted pathophysiological mechanisms. Regardless of the nature of the initiating events and optimized therapy used, loss of functioning cardiac myocytes developed and the disease progressed. One potential explanation ...

Phase

Right Ventricular Defibrillation Lead Select Site Study

The new studies "Right Ventricular Lead/Select Site Registry" and "Right Ventricular Lead/Select Site Registry: Acute Study" are studies designed to look at alternate lead locations for defibrillation leads for ICDs. The registry is designed to capture data from patients who have already undergone implant, so as to be able to ...

Phase N/A

Iron Supplementation in Heart Failure Patients With Anemia: The IRON-HF Study

The IRON-HF study is an investigator initiated, multicenter, prospectively designed,randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial. Randomization:Each of the eight participating centers will randomize patients by telephone contact with the randomization center at Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre. The randomization system will be based on a computerized table of random ...

Phase

PREVENT-HF: Prevention of Heart Failure Events With Impedance Cardiography Testing

The course of patients with chronic heart failure is marked by periodic episodes of clinical decompensation that not only impair the quality of life and may be fatal but also consume substantial health care resources, primarily due to the costs of hospitalization. Heart failure management programs have been developed to ...

Phase

Combined CABG and Stem-Cell Transplantation for Heart Failure

The prevalence of symptomatic heart failure in general population is up to 2% and the prevalence increases rapidly with age. Half of the patients with symptomatic heart failure will die within 4 years of diagnosis.The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of bone marrow-derived stem cell transplantation ...

Phase

Congestive Heart Failure Surgical Treatmment With Autologous Stem Cell Therapy

Primary target: determine the safety of introducing CD 34+ autologous progenitor cells (centrally grafted or mobilized in peripheral blood) in the myocardium of ischemic cardiac disease patients. Secondary target: determine clinical effects of grafted cells on remodeling pathology.

Phase

Insulin Resistance : Heart Failure

There is increasing evidence of a reciprocal interrelationship between chronic heart failure (CHF) and insulin resistance (IR). Studies have shown that patients with CHF have IR and that the degree of IR is associated with reduced exercise capacity and peak oxygen consumption (VO2). IR has also been linked to decreased ...

Phase N/A

VIVID - Valvular and Ventricular Improvement Via iCoapsys Delivery - Feasibility Study

Functional MR is a frequent outcome of ischemic heart disease or dilated cardiomyopathy. Patients with functional MR generally have normal valvular structures complicated by left ventricular dysfunction. Left ventricular dysfunction will often create geometric distortions that prevent complete leaflet coaptation, rendering the valve incompetent. Changes that will induce functional MR ...
