Transcatheter Valve Implantation in Patients With Dysfunctional Left and Right Sided Heart Valves

Many forms of congenital and structural heart disease require surgical placement of prosthetic valves and conduits. These conditions include many common congenital heart abnormalities such as Tetralogy of Fallot, Double Outlet Right Ventricle, Truncus Arteriosus and patients who require the Ross procedure for aortic stenosis. There are a variety of ...

Phase N/A

Individualized Diagnosis of Endocarditis and Its Therapy With a Focus on Infected Prosthetic materiAL

Rationale Infective endocarditis (IE) is a frequent and serious complication of implanted intracardiac prosthetic material, with a high morbidity and mortality. The number of procedures where prosthetic material is implanted in the heart increases, as do the age and comorbidity of treated subjects. In current clinical practice diagnosis of infected ...

Prognostic Impact of the Location of Mitral Valve Prolapse on the Long-term Results of Mitral Plasty

Mitral insufficiency (MI) accounts for 24% of adult valvulopathies and affects 7% of subjects older than 75 years. They are the second leading cause of valvulopathy in Europe. The most common etiology is the associated valvular prolapse. Mitral surgery remains the reference treatment for symptomatic MI. The success of this ...

COMPASSION XT PAS - Post-approval Study of the SAPIEN XT THV in Patients With Pulmonary Valve Dysfunction

The study is a prospective, non-randomized, multi-center clinical study to assess the safety and effectiveness of pulmonic implantation of the SAPIEN THV in patients with dysfunctional RVOT conduits requiring treatment for moderate or severe pulmonary regurgitation (PR) by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and/or RVOT conduit obstruction with a mean gradient of ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Radiolabeled rhAnnexin V-128 in Infective Endocarditis

Intraluminal thrombi adherent to cardiac valves or atria share a common pathophysiology involving the aggregation of activated platelets with phosphatidylserine (PS) expression on the outer layer of the thrombus. They also share common complications, i.e. damages to the underlying myocardium and embolic risk related to thrombus fragmentation. The diagnostic work-up, ...

Phase

Effects of Hyperoxia on Open Heart Surgery

Patients undergoing Open Cardiac Surgery will be randomized into two groups. Group I will be ventilated with 40% Fio2 during induction, surgery and in Postoperative care unit. Group II will be ventilated with 100% Fio2 during induction and with 60-70% ( determined according to the arterial blood gas sample results) ...

Etiology of Endocarditis in Negative Blood Cultures

Infective endocarditis remains a serious disease that requires fast and specialized support in 2012. However, 24% of endocarditis unanswered etiology. The systematic use of new policy diagnosis, including (i) a systematic use of specific PCR techniques and (ii) the search for markers of inflammatory and tumoral diseases, should increase the ...

Phase N/A

Dabigatran Versus Conventional Treatment for Prevention of Silent Cerebral Infarct in Atrial Fibrillation Associated With Valvular Disease

Amongst different types of cardiac arrhythmia, tachyarrhythmia shows the highest prevalence. The prevalence of AF, which is tachyarrhythmia, is approximately 2% of the entire population and 5% of the population at the age of 60 or older. AF is the cause of approximately 20% of all events of ischemic stroke, ...
