Hyperion International Registry Trial

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety, performance and efficacy of the Hyperion™ Occluder Systems during treatment of ASD and PDA patients.

Phase N/A

Mental Imagery Therapy for Autism (MITA) - an Early Intervention Computerized Brain Training Program for Children With ASD

Visual puzzles have been used for centuries to facilitate early development in kids. Mental Imagery Therapy for Autism (MITA) is a unique, early-intervention application for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The app includes bright, interactive puzzles designed to help children learn how to mentally integrate multiple features of an ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

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

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

Prognostic Markers of Inflammation in Infants Undergoing Cardiopulmonary Bypass

This is a minimal risk observational study looking at markers of inflammation and cell injury in the bloodstream of babies with congenital heart disease, with a particular emphasis on whether these markers can predict low cardiac output syndrome in infants who undergo heart-lung bypass. Low cardiac output syndrome is a ...

Phase N/A

Surgical Planning for Reconstruction of Complex Heart Defects

In the United States, approximately 1 in 200 babies are born each year with harmful congenital heart defects (CHD) that require some form of medical management. Often, these defects consist of holes in the septum (the walls between the heart chambers) and/or abnormal development of the heart chambers or major ...

Phase N/A

Identification of Genetic Basis of Atrioventricular Conduction Defects: From Congenital Forms to Degenerative Forms

Atrioventricular blocks are a heterogenous group of diseases involving children with congenital atrioventricular block (CAB) and more frequently elderly patients affected by progressive Cardiac Conduction Disease (PCCD). The aim of the study is to uncover the genetic model, likely more complex than previously appreciated, and characterize the gene expression remodelling ...
