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 Organ Perfusion With Custodiol-N Solution Compared With Custodiol Solution in Heart Transplantation

The objective of this investigation is to demonstrate non-inferiority in outcome of Custodiol-N against Custodiol in heart transplantation.

Phase

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

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

Combined CABG and Stem-Cell Transplantation for Heart Failure

The prevalence of symptomatic heart failure in general population is up to 2% and the prevalence increases rapidly with age. Half of the patients with symptomatic heart failure will die within 4 years of diagnosis.The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of bone marrow-derived stem cell transplantation ...

Phase

Anti-T-Lymphocyte Globulin (ATG) in Renal Transplantation of Kidneys With a Non-Heart-Beating (NHB) Donor

One of the greatest problems in renal transplantation is the shortage of donor kidneys. Kidneys of non-heart-beating donors (NHB) are a possible solution, but transplantation is accompanied with a high percentage of acute renal failure, caused by ischemia-reperfusion injury. The increased ischemia-reperfusion injury results in an increased immune activation, which ...

Phase

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Advanced Cardiac Imaging in Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy

Heart transplantation is a viable treatment option for select patients with end-stage heart failure, with 1-year survival rates for heart transplantation approximating 85%. Of those who survive the first year, >90% are alive at 5 years. In the early post-transplant period, rejection of the donor heart due to activation of ...

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 ...
