Aortic Replacement Using Individualised Regenerative Allografts - ARISE (the "Surveillance")

This is a prospective, non-randomized, single-arm, multi-centre surveillance study to be conducted in Europe. The Surveillance is designed as a study, where ARISE AV is prescribed in the usual manner in accordance with the terms of the approval. Assignment of the patient to a particular therapeutic strategy is not decided ...

Phase N/A

Sodium Creatine Phosphate in Heart Valve Surgery

Objective: To explore the effect of intraoperative sodium creatine phosphate on myocardial protection in patients undergoing valve surgery Methods: 250 patients undergoing valve surgery were randomly divided into experimental group and control group. 5g creatine phosphate was dissolved in 50ml saline solution. After induction of anesthesia, the patients were first ...

Phase N/A

The Right Ventricular Responses to Mild Hypercarbia After Mitral Valve Repair Surgery

The aims of the study is to investigate the right ventricular responses to mild hypercarbia after mitral valve prolapse repair surgery by the measurements obtained on pulmonary arterial catheter and transesophageal echocardiography. Investigators hypothesize that induced mild hypercarbia (PaCO2 7.5 kPa) cause elevated mean pulmonary arterial pressure and pulmonary vascular ...

Management of Infectious Endocarditis as Part of a Multidisciplinary Consensus Meeting

New ESC 2015 recommendations with encouragement to set up a Multidisciplinary Consultation Meeting to discuss the medical and surgical management of endocarditis, set up at Strasbourg University Hospital in October 2016: Impact and benefits

Phase N/A

Autoimmune Basis for Postural Tachycardia Syndrome

Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a debilitating disorder resulting from cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction, has many causes and is very difficult to treat effectively. The investigators have identified the presence of autoantibodies (immune proteins) directed against some receptors of the autonomic nervous system that can cause patient's symptoms on standing. The ...

Phase N/A

Safety and Performance of the Trialign Percutaneous Tricuspid Valve Annuloplasty System (PTVAS)

A prospective, single-arm, multi-center study, enrolling symptomatic patients with chronic functional tricuspid regurgitation. The study will include up to 60 subjects from up to 15 sites in Europe and the United States. Follow-up evaluations will be conducted through 5 years post implantation.

Phase N/A

Stroke-free Survival Comparison Between Early Surgery and Conventional Therapy in Left Infective Endocarditis

Infective endocarditis (IE) is a relatively rare disease and has a high in-hospital mortality (15-30%) and morbidity due to complications like embolic events, especially in the central nervous system, and heart failure. International guidelines give indications on the optimal timing for surgery, and they strongly recommend early surgery for patients ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Dexmedetomidine on Postoperative Renal Function in Infective Endocarditis Patients Undergoing Open Heart Surgery

Acute kidney injury is major complication after open heart surgery. The cause of acute kidney injury following open heart surgery is related to activation of sympathetic nervous system, decrease of renal blood flow, ischemia-reperfusion injury and systemic inflammatory response. Infective endocarditis patients undergoing open heart surgery have systemic inflammatory response ...

Phase N/A

A Trial of Genotype-based Warfarin Initiation in Patients With Mechanical Prosthetic Heart Valve

Until very recently, warfarin is still the best drug of choice for long-term anticoagulation for patients with mechanical prosthetic heart valve. However, the complication of warfarin account for 75 percent of the whole complication after the mechanical prosthetic heart valve replacement. Interindividual variation in warfarin dose is mediated by multiple ...
