Cardiomyopathy Clinical Trials

A listing of Cardiomyopathy medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.

RESULTS

Found (24) clinical trials

The purpose of this trial or study is to determine if cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) can be a benefit to people who have impaired heart function due to past treatment with chemotherapy and/or chest radiation. The investigators are looking to enroll approximately 100 eligible subjects with heart failure in this ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Data Obtained by Echocardiography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

All data from consecutive patients with HCM explored by 2D-echo or MRI in our institution will be analyzed blindly by a senior echocardiographist and a senior radiologist to highlights the respective interest of each of these examinations for the detection of structural or functional abnormalities in HCM.

Phase N/A

Molecular Analysis of Patients With Neuromuscular Disease

Our research has many goals, one of which is to characterize the genetic changes responsible for the type of muscle disease found in our participants. In our past research, several new genes responsible for various forms of neuromuscular disease were identified and/or are being studied. These include dystrophin, the sarcoglycans, ...

The Genetics of Dilated Cardiomyopathy: A Quebec-Based Study

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) affects about 200,000 Canadians. Eighty percent of these cases are of unclear cause, often occuring in families. We believe that mutations in specific already-identified genes contribute to DCM in Quebec and that certain mutations may account for a significant proportion of cases due to the well-documented "founder ...

Phase N/A

Multicenter Study of Immunoadsorption in Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is characterized by ventricular chamber enlargement and systolic dysfunction with normal LV wall thickness. According to reports heretofore, the incidence of this disorder in industrialized Western countries lies within the order of magnitude of 5 - 8 new illnesses per year for every 100,000 population. The prevalence, ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Genetics of Cardiovascular and Neuromuscular Disease

We are studying the genetics of human cardiovascular and neuromuscular disease. There are many different genetic regions that have been associated with the development of cardiomyopathy. An equal number of genetic regions have been associated with muscular dystrophy and there is overlap because some of the identical genes, when mutated, ...

Phase N/A

Role of Left Ventricular Pacing Site

Background. Cardiac resynchronization therapy has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms and mortality in heart failure patients. However, very few is known about the importance of the left ventricular pacing site. Design. Single-blind, monocentric, randomized cross-over study comparing 11 left ventricular pacing sites in a random order. Intervention. ...

Phase N/A

Molecular Genetic Screening and Identification of Congenital Arrhythmogenic Diseases

Molecular genetic screening in patients with: - supraventricular - ventricular arrhythmia - syncopes of unknown origin and/or suspicion of an arrhythmogenic origin - family members of patients with sudden cardiac death and aborted sudden cardiac death Examination of patients includes routine testing like electrocardiogram (ECG), sequential ECGs, exercise testing, invasive ...

Phase N/A

Registry and Survey of Women With Pregnancy Related Cardiomyopathy

The design of our study will utilize web-based recruitment methods with internet-based support groups for PPCM e.g. www.AMothersHeart.org (www.amothersheart.org/index.html). The directors of these websites will facilitate contact between our research staff and the several hundred members of these web sites. An introductory letter will be posted on the website introducing ...
