Preconditioning With Sevoflurane and Propofol in Patients Undergoing Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery

The main aim of this study is to compare markers of cardiac injury (Troponin I), inflammatory response and platelets function during minimally invasive mitral valve repair or replacement (MIMV) via right mini-thoracotomy in two standard anaesthetic regimes: - Volatile conditioning (sevoflurane) used during induction (preconditioning) and during the operation as ...

Phase N/A

The Canadian Mitral Research Alliance (CAMRA) Trial CardioLink-2

Mitral valve repair has emerged as the preferred surgical treatment for mitral valve prolapse (MVP), a condition wherein the mitral valve does not close properly. One common strategy for mitral valve repair is leaflet resection, which involves removing part of one or both of the mitral leaflets that flop or ...

Phase N/A

Aortic Regurgitation After Surgical Repair of Outlet-Type Ventricular Septal Defect

Progression of aortic regurgitation (AR) in repaired outlet (juxta-arterial, muscular outlet and perimembranous outlet) ventricular septal defect (VSD) remains unclear. From 1987 to 2002, 411 patients with complete follow-up after repair of outlet VSD constituted the study population. Study end point was aortic valve replacement or mortality. Aortic valve replacement ...

Multicenter Study on Fibrotic Valvular Heart Disease in Patients With Parkinson's Disease Treated With Dopamine Agonists

Rare incidence of pleuropulmonary and retroperitoneal fibrosis are known complications during the long-time therapy of Parkinson's disease (PD) with ergot-drug derivatives including some ergot dopamine agonists. Particularly the appearance of fibrotic valvular heart disease of Parkinson patients under Pergolide therapy caused an intense discussion about the safety of dopamine agonists ...

Phase N/A

"Salvage Use" of Recombinant Factor VIIa After Inadequate Haemostasis in Complex Cardiac Surgery

11. 3 Methods Synopsis of Study: A multicentred randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of activated recombinant factor VII (rVIIa) in complex cardiac surgery. Study will be conducted at Austin Hospital, Alfred Hospital and Warringal Private Hospital. The study will have two arms: 1. Those who ...


Randomized On-X Anticoagulation Trial

This is a longitudinal, randomized (randomization to occur at the 3-month follow-up) study comparing the On-X valve on low dose anticoagulation (test group) to concomitant control groups of On-X valves receiving standard Coumadin/aspirin therapy, and also to FDA objective performance criteria (OPC) for heart valve replacement. It is a multicenter ...

Phase N/A

Should we Repair Ischemic Mitral Regurgitation?

The purpose of this study is to assess whether adding mitral valve repair to coronary artery bypass grafting improves outcome in patients with ischemic mitral regurgitation.

Phase N/A

VIVID - Valvular and Ventricular Improvement Via iCoapsys Delivery - Feasibility Study

Functional MR is a frequent outcome of ischemic heart disease or dilated cardiomyopathy. Patients with functional MR generally have normal valvular structures complicated by left ventricular dysfunction. Left ventricular dysfunction will often create geometric distortions that prevent complete leaflet coaptation, rendering the valve incompetent. Changes that will induce functional MR ...


Rationale Design and Methods for the Early Surgery in Infective Endocarditis Study (ENDOVAL)

BACKGROUND Whereas mortality has been dramatically reduced in some areas of cardiac diseases thanks to continuous progress in treatment, endocarditis remains a high-mortality disease with steady percentages of mortality in the last 30 years. Several reasons may help to account for this frustrating comparison. The changing pattern of the epidemiology ...


Confirmation Trial of the Acorn CorCap Cardiac Support Device (CSD) at the Same Time as Mitral Valve Repair

The Acorn CorCap Cardiac Support Device (CSD) is a new therapy for the treatment of heart failure that is designed to reduce left ventricular dilation, which is one of the most important pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the clinical syndrome of heart failure. The Acorn CorCap CSD is intended to reduce wall ...
