Incidence of Significant Mitral Regurgitation in Acute Heart Failure Patients

All patients admitted with symptoms of HF- (shortness of breath (SOB), peripheral oedema, palpitations and irregular heart beats) will be assessed by the Research Team. The level of BNP will be checked using a small device (i-STAT BNP) at the bedside. If results of the test suggest HF they will ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of a Rivaroxaban-based Strategy With an Antiplatelet-based Strategy Following Successful TAVR for the Prevention of Leaflet Thickening and Reduced Leaflet Motion as Evaluated by Four-dimensional Volume-rendered Computed Tomography (4DCT)

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become an established therapeutic option for patients with symptomatic, severe aortic valve stenosis, who are ineligible or at high risk for conventional surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). It was recently reported that leaflet thickening and reduced leaflet motion, verified by four-dimensional computed tomography ...


Diagnostic Accuracy of 18FDG-PET-CT for Pacing or Defibrillation Lead Infection

With aging of the general population and broadening indications, the number of pacemaker recipients is steadily increasing. The incidence of infections of the implanted material, a dreaded major complication, is also rising. The diagnosis is evident in presence of an abscessed pocket, cutaneous breakthrough of the pulse generator or vegetations ...

Phase N/A

Study of the Clinical Impact of Surgical Correction of Tricuspid Insufficiency in Implantable LVAD Patients

Participant recruitment: At University of Washington Medical Center, 30 to 40 patients with mild tricuspid valve regurgitation (TR) receive LVAD placement annually. A predicted 50 - 60% of these patients will agree to be enrolled in this study, for an estimation of 15 to 20 participants a year. With an ...

Phase N/A

Quality of Life After Ministernotomy Versus Full Sternotomy Aortic Valve Replacement

This is a single-center, single-blind, all comer, randomized controlled trial. Patients scheduled for isolated aortic valve replacement (AVR) due to aortic stenosis at "Virgen de la Victoria Universitary Hospital", Mlaga, Spain, will be eligible. Ninety-six patients will be randomly assigned to either partial upper sternotomy (ministernotomy, 48 patients) or full ...

Phase N/A

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

An Oral Amoxicillin-Clavulanate Regimen to Prevent Bacteremia Following Dental Procedures

PURPOSE: Despite the controversy about the risk of developing bacterial endocarditis of oral origin, numerous Expert Committees in different countries continue to publish prophylactic regimens. To date, the literature is unclear about the role of antimicrobial prophylaxis in the prevention of bacteremia following dental procedures. The aim of this study ...


Strategies for Revascularization in Patients Undergoing Heart Valve Surgery With Concomitant Coronary Artery Disease

The SAVE-IT trial is a multicenter, international, randomized, controlled, superiority trial. Patients scheduled to undergo elective valvular heart surgery will be screened for presence of concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD) by invasive coronary angiography. Patients with a stenosis > 50% in at least one epicardial vessel (excluding left main) considered ...

Phase N/A

Transcatheter Valve Implantation in Patients With Dysfunctional Left and Right Sided Heart Valves

Many forms of congenital and structural heart disease require surgical placement of prosthetic valves and conduits. These conditions include many common congenital heart abnormalities such as Tetralogy of Fallot, Double Outlet Right Ventricle, Truncus Arteriosus and patients who require the Ross procedure for aortic stenosis. There are a variety of ...

Phase N/A

Individualized Diagnosis of Endocarditis and Its Therapy With a Focus on Infected Prosthetic materiAL

Rationale Infective endocarditis (IE) is a frequent and serious complication of implanted intracardiac prosthetic material, with a high morbidity and mortality. The number of procedures where prosthetic material is implanted in the heart increases, as do the age and comorbidity of treated subjects. In current clinical practice diagnosis of infected ...
