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.

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 ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase

Study Evaluating the Safety Tolerability and Preliminary Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of MYK-491

The purpose of this Phase 1 study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of MYK-491 in patients with DCM and stable heart failure.

Phase

Preserved Umbilical Vein Use as Autologous Shunt Conduits in Neonatal Cardiac Surgery

This is a prospective, single center, safety and feasibility trial to evaluate the use of autologous umbilical vein as shunts or conduits in neonatal cardiac surgery. Subjects will be identified here at the Advanced Fetal Care Center (AFCC) following diagnosis of congenital heart disease (CHD) with single ventricle physiology of ...

Phase N/A

Mesoblast Stem Cell Therapy for Patients With Single Ventricle and Borderline Left Ventricle

This is a prospective, single center, safety and feasibility, blinded, randomized trial to evaluate the use of MPCs in children with complex cardiac anatomy requiring surgical repair. Patients scheduled to undergo bidirectional Glenn (BDG) with future plans for LV recruitment, or patients with a history of BDG who are currently ...

Phase

MitraClip and Hemodynamic Effects of Relevant Iatrogenic Atrial Septum Defect Closure

Transcatheter mitral valve repair with the MitraClip system is a therapeutic alternative to surgery in selected high-risk patients. Clip placement requires interatrial transseptal puncture and meticulous manipulation of the steerable sheath. There is evidence that the persistence of a relevant iASD after MitraClip is associated with worse clinical outcomes and ...
