Study of Energy Expenditure in Infants With Ventricular Septal Defects

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: Height, weight, and vital signs (including oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry) are measured on Day 1. Resting energy expenditure, oxygen consumption (VO2), carbon dioxide production (VCO2), and resting respiratory exchange quotient (RQ) are measured using open circuit respiratory calorimetry on Day 1. Patients undergo assessment of total daily ...

Examining Developmental Changes in Heart Contractions of Children With Congenital Heart Defects

Congenital heart defects are abnormalities or problems with the structure of the heart that are present at birth. Examples of congenital heart defects include hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which is a condition that occurs when the left side of the heart does not develop completely, and tetralogy of Fallot, which ...

Central Venous Saturation (ScvO2) Monitoring in Pediatric Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

Children (ages 0-12) that have heart surgery are often at a high risk of developing complications and have to be continuously monitored. Part of the routine care at UCLA includes using a monitor (continuous central venous oxygen saturation-ScvO2) to measure the amount of oxygen saturation in the tissues (indirectly) during ...

Phase N/A

Pediatric Exercise With Congenital Heart Defects (Kinderturnen Mit Angeborenem Herzfehler)

The study will be performed with a randomized crossover design. After the first assessment of coordinative capabilities children were randomized into two groups. One starts with exercised training for three months. After midterm assessment of the capabilities they will pause for another 3 months and reassessed. The second group will ...

The Genetics of Dilated Cardiomyopathy: A Quebec-Based Study

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) affects about 200,000 Canadians. Eighty percent of these cases are of unclear cause, often occuring in families. We believe that mutations in specific already-identified genes contribute to DCM in Quebec and that certain mutations may account for a significant proportion of cases due to the well-documented "founder ...

Phase N/A

Multicenter Study of Immunoadsorption in Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is characterized by ventricular chamber enlargement and systolic dysfunction with normal LV wall thickness. According to reports heretofore, the incidence of this disorder in industrialized Western countries lies within the order of magnitude of 5 - 8 new illnesses per year for every 100,000 population. The prevalence, ...

Phase N/A

Molecular Basis of Congenital Heart Defects

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the role of mutation of genes in congenital heart diseases and study the genotype-phenotype correlation. Hypothesis: The central hypothesis is that a significant percentage of congenital heart disease is caused by mutation of genes involved in heart development, and the phenotype ...

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.

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 ...

Phase N/A

Role of Left Ventricular Pacing Site

Background. Cardiac resynchronization therapy has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms and mortality in heart failure patients. However, very few is known about the importance of the left ventricular pacing site. Design. Single-blind, monocentric, randomized cross-over study comparing 11 left ventricular pacing sites in a random order. Intervention. ...
