Goal-directed Afterload Reduction in Acute Congestive Cardiac Decompensation Study

Background: Heart failure (HF) is a chronic and progressive illness resulting from a variety of cardiac causes, including ischemic and valvular heart disease, dilatative cardiomyopathy or hypertension. HF may also develop suddenly, particularly as a complication of acute myocardial infarction or as an acute exacerbation in patients with previously compensated ...

Does Lung Impedance Correlate With Changes in BNP in Stable and Acutely Decompensated Heart Failure Patients?

This is a prospective non-randomized longitudinal study. One hundred subjects will participate in 6 monthly and 3 bi-monthly serial assessments of plasma-based BNP, implantable device measured intrathoracic impedance, and clinical evaluation of heart failure status. Each patient will be enrolled in the study for a period of 12 months.

Phase N/A

Confirmation Trial of the Acorn CorCap Cardiac Support Device (CSD) at the Same Time as Mitral Valve Repair

The Acorn CorCap Cardiac Support Device (CSD) is a new therapy for the treatment of heart failure that is designed to reduce left ventricular dilation, which is one of the most important pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the clinical syndrome of heart failure. The Acorn CorCap CSD is intended to reduce wall ...


The Effects of the Inspiratory Muscle Plus Aerobic Training Compare to Aerobic Training Alone in Heart Failure Patients.

A sample comprising at least 30 individuals is necessary. These subjects will be randomized in two groups, one consisting of inspiratory muscle training plus aerobic training, whereas the other will consist of the aerobic training alone. This prospective, randomized, controlled trial will include patients with the diagnosis of chronic heart ...
