Clinical Trial to Evaluate the the ReliantHeart HeartAssist 5 VAD System in Patients Awaiting Heart Transplantation

The HeartAssist 5 VAD System is intended for use as a bridge to heart transplantation and will be compared to the HeartMate II and HVAD devices. Patients that meet the study criteria will be randomized 1:1 to either the HeartAssist 5 VAD System (treatment group) or control group (HeartMate II ...

Phase N/A

Early Versus Emergency Left Ventricular Assist Device Implantation in Patients Awaiting Cardiac Transplantation

Heart transplantation is considered the gold-standard therapy for end-stage systolic heart failure but the shortage of donor hearts in Germany and other countries has led to widespread use of left ventricular assist devices (LVAD). Even on the transplant list, patients' condition often deteriorate due to worsening heart failure so that ...

Phase N/A

Study of Heart Transplant Rejection

Cardiac transplantation has been successful in improving survival in end stage heart failure. But graft rejection has limited survival after transplantation. In the first year, acute cellular rejection and infection remain the most common causes of morbidity and mortality. Afterwards, cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV), as a result of chronic vascular ...

Phase N/A

Text Message Intervention to Improve Cardiac Rehab Participation

Mobile phone interventions, such as text messaging programs, have been shown to promote healthy behaviors in patients with coronary heart disease, but it is unknown whether text messaging can successfully promote participation in cardiac rehabilitation. This study will have the following aims: Aim 1: Adapt a theory- and evidence-based text ...

Phase N/A

Diagnostic Performance of Coronary CT Angiography With CT FFR in Kidney Transplantation Candidates

Transplantation is the therapy of choice for most patients with stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD). Kidney transplantation improves quality of life and overall survival rates. Cardiovascular disease is the most common complication and leading cause of death in the transplant population. In order ...

Phase N/A

Expanding the Pool in Orthotopic Heart Transplantation

The investigators are proposing a proof of concept study in which positive donors will be used for HCV negative patients. Following heart transplantation patients will undergo HCV antibody, virus PCR, and liver function testing. Recipients whom test positive for HCV viremia for 2 consecutive tests at any point will complete ...

Phase N/A

Intracoronary Bradykinin Mediated t-PA Release in Heart Transplant Recipients

Heart transplant recipients do not have nerves to their hearts. This protocol tests the hypothesis that bradykinin mediated t-PA release in the coronary arteries will be reduced in heart transplant recipients compared to healthy subjects. This study will compare heart transplant recipients to healthy controls who are undergoing cardiac cath ...

Phase N/A

The Association of Endothelial Dysfunction and Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy

Progressive cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) is a serious complication in long-term survivors after heart transplantation. Therefore, we hypothesize that CAV is a diffuse and progressive process, and endothelial function may play an important role in predicting clinical outcome after heart transplantation. Therefore, this single-blinded study is designed to evaluate endothelial ...

Phase N/A

The Mycophenolate Pregnancy Registry

The Mycophenolate Pregnancy Registry is designed as a prospective, observational registry collecting data regarding mycophenolate exposure during pregnancy, and pregnancy outcomes, fetal and infant outcomes after exposure. Early and later term pregnancy outcomes will be solicited at selected gestational time points. Structural and functional birth defects identified in the perinatal ...

Phase N/A

Detection of Acute Graft Rejection in Heart Transplant Patients by Estimation of T2

The investigators propose a simple and non-invasive method to monitor heart transplant patients with MRI. Its diagnostic and prognostic values have already been assessed in two monocentric studies. Other monocentric studies based on related methods have confirmed the investigators findings. These studies are insufficient to allow a large diffusion of ...
