Randomized Trial of Maternal Progesterone Therapy

In the United States, approximately 1 in every 100 newborns is diagnosed with congenital heart disease (CHD). Many of these newborns (25%-35%) will require either corrective or palliative open heart surgery. As recently as the 1960's, only 20% of newborns with critical CHD survived to adulthood. Today, thanks to better ...


A Prospective Study of Breast Cancer Patients With Abnormal Strain Imaging

150 patients will be prospectively consented/screened. Over the course of the study, 30 patients are expected to develop abnormal strain with a normal EF > 53%. They will be randomized in 1:1 fashion to open label carvedilol vs. no treatment. All consenting patients will receive a baseline echocardiogram and blood ...


Erythropoietin to Prevent Unnecessary Transfusions In Patients With Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease - A Prospective Control Trial

Congenital heart disease occurs in about 1% of all live births. Cyanotic cardiac lesions in particular are at risk for significant mortality and morbidity because of their reduced ability to provide adequate oxygenation to the body and the brain. Many experts believe that to have adequate oxygen carrying capacity that ...

Acute Effects of Inhaled Treprostinil in Fontan Patients

In this pilot study investigators propose to explore the effects of a locally delivered inhaled pulmonary vasodilator (inhaled treprostinil) on exercise performance, pulmonary blood flow, venous pressure response and vascular function in stable Fontan patients. Investigators will also assess the effects of resting and acute rises in exercise induced systemic ...

Effect of SNF472 on Progression of Cardiovascular Calicification in End-Stage-Renal-Disease (ESRD) Patients on Hemodialysis (HD)

Reducing the progression of cardiovascular calcification (CVC) in HD patients may improve the severe burden of CV disease related to the underlying ESRD. As no therapy is currently indicated to target CVC, there is a need to investigate the ability of SNF472 to reduce CVC progression and, ultimately, to improve ...
