A clinical trial seeking patients for a research study for the treatment of Myocardial Infarction, Autonomic nervous system disorders

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is the most common single cause of death in the industrialized world. Patients after myocardial infarction (MI) are at increased risk of SCD. Current guidelines recommend prophylactic ICD-implantation in post-MI patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF 35%). However, the majority of arrhythmic deaths after ...

Phase N/A

SANICS II Trial: Stimulation of the Autonomic Nervous System in Colorectal Surgery by Perioperative Nutrition

Postoperative ileus (POI) and anastomotic leakage (AL) are important clinical determinants of short-term morbidity and mortality following colorectal surgery. Importantly, AL is also a risk factor for local recurrence of colorectal cancer and has a significant impact on disease-free and overall survival. It is therefore believed that improving postoperative outcome ...


Anxiety-mediated Impairments in Large Elastic Artery Function and the Autonomic Nervous System

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health problems in the United States, occurring in about 18% of adults per year, and a lifetime prevalence of approximately 28% (25). Importantly, anxiety disorders are associated with increased risk for sudden cardiac death and non-fatal myocardial infarction (27, 46) independent of other ...


Blood Pressure Lowering Effects of Angiotensin-(1-7) in Primary Autonomic Failure

This is an inpatient study that requires at least four days of admission to the Vanderbilt Clinical Research Center. Autonomic failure patients will be placed on a fixed diet during the admission and will have routine tests performed for screening and clinical characterization. Patients will then receive intravenous angiotensin-(1-7) or ...

Phase N/A

Autoimmune Basis for Postural Tachycardia Syndrome

Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a debilitating disorder resulting from cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction, has many causes and is very difficult to treat effectively. The investigators have identified the presence of autoantibodies (immune proteins) directed against some receptors of the autonomic nervous system that can cause patient's symptoms on standing. The ...

Autonomic Nervous System Role in Uncontrolled ASTHMA and the Paucigranulocitic Phenotype

Role of the ANS in asthma For decades it's considered that the autonomic nervous system (ANS) plays an important role in the pathophysiology and symptomatology of asthma. The ANS had important functions besides regulating airway, such as bronchial smooth muscle tone, secretions, blood flow, microvascular permeability, also acts on migration ...

Phase N/A

Brisk Walking Study in Nursing Home Residents

The investigators aim to compare the effects of a 9 month brisk walking training (1 time a week or 3 times a week) on the ANS of nursing home residents. Also the investigators wish to measure the effects of post exercise VNS stimulation on the ANS activity

Phase N/A

Implementation of Transdx Group for POTS

The proposed intervention is focused on developing and implementing a psychological approach incorporated into a group-based outpatient intervention for pediatric autonomic dysfunction. The investigators hypothesize that their intervention will result in improvements in the transdiagnostic mechanisms specifically targeted by components of their intervention including sleep, information processing, and youth/parent experiential ...

Phase N/A

Does Propranolol Attenuate Inflammatory Responses to a Psychological Stressor?

Psychological stress is implicated in the onset and progression of many common and costly chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, chronic pain conditions, and major depressive disorder (Cohen et al., 2007; Kendler et al., 1999; Steptoe and Kivimaki, 2012). An emerging body of evidence suggests that inflammation, indexed via levels of ...


Dietetic and Hygiene Measures in Metabolic Neuropathies: the Neurodiet Study

Metabolic disorder such as diabetes mellitus, glucose intolerance and possibly metabolic syndrome can induce a peripheral neuropathy. The objectives of the present study are to investigate the effect of physical training and diet education on neuropathic symptoms and neurophysiological parameters the best coaching modality of education. This will be a ...
