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 ...

"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

Heart Leaflet Technologies Valve Study

Aortic valve stenosis is a disease in which the leaflets of the aortic valve become scarred and calcified. This leads to a severe narrowing of the valve orifice, which causes chest pain, heart failure and eventually death. The condition is currently treated with open chest surgical valve replacement on cardiopulmonary ...

Speckle Tracking Imaging and Realtime 3 Dimensional Echocardiograhy to Study LV Function and Remodeling After Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI)

We are currently witnessing the advent of new diagnostic tools and therapies for heart diseases, but,without serious scientific consensus on fundamental questions about normal and diseased heart structure and function. During the last decade, three successive, international, multidisciplinary symposia were organized in order to setup fundamental research principles, which would ...

Phase N/A

Preoperative Assessment of Aortic Valve Stenosis and Coronary Artery Disease

Until now invasive coronary angiography has established itself for the assessment of symptomatic aortic valve stenosis. Literature shows a good correlation between MSCT, MRI, TTE and TEE for evaluating the severity of the aortic valve stenosis. The dual-source computed tomography (DSCT) is capable of assessing coronary arteries with a high ...

Phase N/A

Water- and Salt-homeostasis in Healthy Humans and in Patients With Heart- or Lung Disease

The purpose of the study is to determine whether the excretion of renal water- and salt-channels (Aquaporin-2 and Epithelial Sodium Channels) in the urine accurately reflects the handling of water and salt in the distal tubules af the kidneys, and whether quantification of these channels in the urine is useful ...

Effect of MitraClip on Acute and Chronic Reverse Cardiac Remodeling Assessed by CMR: The MITRA-REVERSE Study

Percutaneous mitral valve repair is expanding treatment options for patients suffering from symptomatic mitral regurgitation (MR). The overall objective of the procedure is to reduce the degree of MR, which may lead to improvement in: 1) hemodynamics, an increase in systemic stroke volume and decrease in left atrial (LA) pressure; ...

Edoxaban Compared to Standard Care After Heart Valve Replacement Using a Catheter in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation (ENVISAGE-TAVI AF)

Use of Edoxaban in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and indication to chronic oral anticoagulation (OAC) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) Objective: - To assess the effect of Edoxaban versus vitamin K antagonist (VKA) on net adverse clinical events (NACE), i.e., the composite of all-cause death, myocardial infarction (MI), ...

Phase

The Medtronic Harmony Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve Clinical Study

The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Harmony™ TPV system.
