The Fontan Education Study: A Randomized Control Trial

The Fontan Education Study is a cluster randomized controlled trial evaluating the impact of a novel education program in combination with usual care, versus usual care alone, on preparing parents of children undergoing Fontan surgery for the challenges of the postoperative course.

Phase N/A

Closure of Muscular Ventricular Septal Defects (VSDs) With the AMPLATZER Muscular VSD (MuVSD) Occluder - Post Approval Study

The AMPLATZER Muscular VSD Occluder was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September, 2007. This study is designed to further evaluate the safety and effectiveness in subjects implanted with the AMPLATZER Muscular VSD Occluder.

An Integrative-"Omics" Study of Cardiomyopathy Patients for Diagnosis and Prognosis in China

Identification of novel biomarkers is needed to improve the diagnosis and prognosis of cardiomyopathy. Also,the marked variation of genes which is still unclear, may influence clinical outcomes is determined in part by genetic heterogeneity of the systemic response to pathological process. Specific aim: Proteomics, microRNA-seq and metabolomics will be to ...

Phase N/A

Utilization of Confocal Microscopy During Cardiac Surgery

This is an interventional pilot study that proposes to evaluate the safety, logistical feasibility, and technological feasibility of using Fluorescite with fiberoptic confocal microscopy during cardiac surgery to discriminate between cardiac tissue and conduction tissue. During surgery to repair atrial septal defect, diluted Fluorescite will be added to the surface ...

Effect of Phosphodiesterase-5 Inhibition With Tadalafil on SystEmic Right VEntricular Size and Function

Currently, there are an estimated 300-600 adults living in Switzerland with congenital heart disease (CHD) and a right ventricle (RV) in subaortic (systemic) position. This includes adults with prior atrial switch operations for complete transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA) and adults with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries ...

The Leiden Nonischemic Cardiomyopathy Study

Rationale: Sudden cardiac death, mainly caused by ventricular arrhythmias (VA), is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM). Therapies that effectively prevent VA are lacking. Improved understanding of the substrate and mechanisms of VA in NICM may allow more effective, individualized and substrate-based therapies to be ...

Clinical and Genetic Examinations of Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Title Clinical and genetic examinations of dilated cardiomyopathy Background Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a severe disease of the heart muscle characterised by reduced pumping function and dilatation of the left ventricle without any obvious cause like hypertension, ischemic heart disease or heart valve disease. The patients often complain about shortness ...

Phase N/A

Improving Neurodevelopmental Outcomes in Children With Congenital Heart Disease: An Intervention Study

Each year, approximately 1 child in every 100 is born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD), making it the most common birth defect. With recent medical advances, more children with CHD survive early open-heart surgery, so that there are now 2 to 3 million adult survivors with CHD. These survivors face ...

Phase N/A

Continues Positive Airway Pressure Treatment for Patients With Dilated Cardiomyopathy and Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea, either obstructive (OSA) and central (CSA), occurs in more than half of all patients with heart failure (HF), and is associated with poor prognosis in these individuals. Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is the most common type of cardiomyopathy and is defined as the presence of the left ventricle dilatation ...

The Rhytmia System to Determine the Precise Location and Potential Mechanism of Premature Contractions

This is a purely observational study. No special methodology choice, no comparison. The study want to find the determination of precise location of the focus and mechanisms involved constitutes a challenge for conventional electrophysiology, even with tridimensional systems, because of the time needed for accurate delineation of the location (due ...
