Prospective Observational Study of the ICD in Sudden Cardiac Death Prevention

PROSe-ICD is a multicenter prospective cohort study of patients who undergo ICD implantation for primary prevention of SCD, designed to compare patients who sustain SCD (as measured by an appropriate ICD firing for rapid VT or VF) to those who do not. The cohort for this observational study consists of ...

Speckle Tracking Imaging and Realtime 3 Dimensional Echocardiograhy to Study LV Function and Remodeling After Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI)

We are currently witnessing the advent of new diagnostic tools and therapies for heart diseases, but,without serious scientific consensus on fundamental questions about normal and diseased heart structure and function. During the last decade, three successive, international, multidisciplinary symposia were organized in order to setup fundamental research principles, which would ...

Circulating Markers That Underlie the Transition From Compensated Hypertrophy to Heart Failure

Heart failure (HF) is a complex clinical syndrome and major public health problem claiming the lives of >500,000 per year. It is the leading Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) for hospital discharges in the US. There are approximately 1-3 million admissions annually for acute decompensated heart failure. The mortality rate in ...

Phase N/A

Circulating Markers for Ischemic Heart Disease

Hypotheses, Objectives and Aims: Hypotheses:Caspase-3, cleaved and activated, and dystrophin can be detected in human circulation. The levels of these two markers are elevated during acute myocardial infarction. Furthermore, the levels of these two proteins are greater in those who develop heart failure than those who do not. Objectives: - ...

Phase N/A

Cardiac FDG PET Viability Registry

Heart failure from reduced left ventricular function is associated with significant morbidity and mortality and although there have been multiple trials involving medical and devices therapies that have shown improved survival, the overall mortality remains high. Therapeutic intervention studies involving transplantation and revascularization concluded that patients with viable myocardium can ...

Phase N/A

Stem Cells and Resynchronization Cardiac

About 120cc of blood are collected from the iliac bone marrow under epidural anesthesia.In the cell therapy lab this blood is harvested and mononuclear cells are separated.This procedure takes roughly 4 hours.After dilution the mononuclear cells are injected into the cardiac muscles with fibroses area through 20 shots.This procedure is ...


The Effects of Anodal Stimulation on Echocardiographic Outcome in Patients With Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

Thirty patients who underwent CRT and had evidence of anodal stimulation will be included in the study. All patients undergo a conventional echocardiography after 10 minutes of continuous triple site pacing and after 10 minutes of continuous dual site pacing (Customary biventricular pacing).Echocardiography studies will be performed to measure dP/dT ...

Phase N/A

Water- and Salt-homeostasis in Healthy Humans and in Patients With Heart- or Lung Disease

The purpose of the study is to determine whether the excretion of renal water- and salt-channels (Aquaporin-2 and Epithelial Sodium Channels) in the urine accurately reflects the handling of water and salt in the distal tubules af the kidneys, and whether quantification of these channels in the urine is useful ...

Phase N/A

Study of Electrical Bioimpedance in Heart Failure.

Heart failure (HF) is a clinical syndrome presenting currently a high prevalence, morbidity and mortality. The lack of sensitivity of symptoms and signs used to make the diagnosis of the exacerbation of HF, and the knowledge in recent years about the relevance to detect congestion before consulting a specialist or ...

Phase N/A

Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (Intermacs)

Background: Over the last several decades, MCSDs have been developed to augment or supplant failing myocardial performance. This therapy has been used successfully as a bridge to heart transplantation, a bridge to recovery, and as permanent implantation or "destination therapy" for intractable heart failure. Although heart transplantation offers life-saving therapy ...
