Thiamine Supplementation in Heart Failure: a Pilot Randomized Controlled Crossover Trial

Heart failure (HF) is a major cardiovascular disease with increasing prevalence. Thiamine deficiency is common in HF patients. Previous small studies have shown that thiamine supplementation can improve left ventricular systolic function in HF, but larger clinical studies are lacking. Given the ease of supplementation and the potential benefits in ...

Safety of Continuing CHemotherapy in Overt Left Ventricular Dysfunction Using Antibodies to HER-2

The SCHOLAR study design will be a modified phase I, non-randomized clinical study. Initially a cohort of 5 participants will be enrolled. They will continue to receive trastuzumab. All participants in SCHOLAR will also be prescribed standard-of-care treatment for patients with LV systolic dysfunction, including the beta-blocker, carvedilol, and the ...

AiDing Diuresis wIth Tolvaptan (ADD-IT)

This is a single-center, randomized trial to assess the effects of 30 mg daily of tolvaptan when given concomitantly with home dose of diuretic (Lasix equivalent) intravenously (IV) versus 5mg daily of metolazone given concomitantly with home dose of diuretic (Lasix equivalent) IV, versus 2.5 times home dose of diuretic ...

Utilization of Confocal Microscopy During Cardiac Surgery

This is an interventional pilot study that proposes to evaluate the safety, logistical feasibility, and technological feasibility of using Fluorescite with fiberoptic confocal microscopy during cardiac surgery to discriminate between cardiac tissue and conduction tissue. During surgery to repair atrial septal defect, diluted Fluorescite will be added to the surface ...

Stem Cell Heart Injections During Laser Revascularization Surgery for Treatment of Chronic Ischemic Heart Disease

Multiple case experiences and studies have been published reviewing clinical experiences with Carbon Dioxide Trans-Myocardial Laser Revascularization (TMR) and autologous bone marrow derived cell application. These experiences have demonstrated perfusion improvements, ejection fraction improvements and improvements in angina or heart failure symptoms. The investigators elected to examine the use of ...

Identifying Vulnerable Plaques in Blood Vessels of the Heart Using a New Imaging Technique

Atherosclerosis is a condition in which deposits of fat, cholesterol, and other substances build up along the inner walls of arteries; these deposits are known as plaque. As plaque builds up, it increases the risk of heart attack. Previous autopsy studies have shown that vulnerable plaques, a type of atherosclerotic ...

A Comparison of Two Sedation Techniques in Children Undergoing Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE)

Currently there are two sedation methods used for children less than 24 months of age undergoing transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). One method provides sedation by mouth with the drug pentobarbital, The other provides sedation through the nose with the drug dexmedetomidine. The choice of which method is used is based on ...

Reoxygenation After Cardiac Arrest II (REOX II Study)

Specific Aim 1: Test if initiation of the rapid FiO2 optimization protocol following ROSC from cardiac arrest is associated with the degree of in vivo oxidative stress during the post-resuscitation phase of therapy. Approach: We will conduct a multicenter interventional study (FiO2 optimization protocol) of adult patients resuscitated from cardiac ...

Effect of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning in Patient Undergoing Cardiac Bypass Surgery

Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is currently the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the developed world, and is set to become the leading cause of death in the world by the year 2020, according to the World Health Organisation. Patients with severe IHD that require coronary artery bypass graft ...
