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 ...


Prospective Randomized On-X Versus SJM Evaluation Trial

The study is a multi-centre, randomized trial that will sequentially enroll up to 500 eligible patients in each group from up to 10 participating study centres internationally to test the hypothesis.

Phase N/A

Cardiovagal Baroreflex Deficits Impair Neurovascular Coupling and Cognition in POTS

Orthostatic intolerance is defined by debilitating upright symptoms that are relieved by sitting or lying. Symptoms include upright lightheadedness, fatigue, confusion, and decreased memory called 'Brain Fog' by patients. The most common chronic form is Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), characterized by excessive upright tachycardia without hypotension. Of note, >85% of ...

Phase N/A

Revascularization in Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation

The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of routine FFR-guided complete revascularization with PCI compared to conservative management in patients with concomitant coronary artery disease who are undergoing TAVI.

Phase N/A

The Value of 99mTc-Leukoscan Scintigraphy in the Diagnosis of Infectious Endocarditis on Surgical Materials

Infectious endocarditis is a serious pathology with difficult diagnosis especially on prosthetic valves or cardiac device because of the plurality of clinical presentations and the low sensitivity value of echocardiography in these patients. Despite a well validated indication for the detection of septic emboli, the value of FDG-PET for the ...


CopenHeart IE - Integrated Rehabilitation of Patients Treated for Infective Endocarditis

Infective endocarditis (IE) is among the most serious infectious diseases in the western world. Treatment requires lengthy hospitalization, high dosage antibiotics and possible valve replacement surgery. Studies indicate that patients experience persisting physical symptoms, diminished quality of life and difficulties returning to work, up to a year post-discharge. No studies ...


Etiology of Endocarditis in Negative Blood Cultures

Infective endocarditis remains a serious disease that requires fast and specialized support in 2012. However, 24% of endocarditis unanswered etiology. The systematic use of new policy diagnosis, including (i) a systematic use of specific PCR techniques and (ii) the search for markers of inflammatory and tumoral diseases, should increase the ...

Phase N/A

A Trial of Genotype-based Warfarin Initiation in Patients With Mechanical Prosthetic Heart Valve

Until very recently, warfarin is still the best drug of choice for long-term anticoagulation for patients with mechanical prosthetic heart valve. However, the complication of warfarin account for 75 percent of the whole complication after the mechanical prosthetic heart valve replacement. Interindividual variation in warfarin dose is mediated by multiple ...
