This study is designed to determine if a simplified technique for cardiac device reprogramming using pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) data in the acute setting holds promise to improve subjective assessments of patient quality of life (QOL), objective measurements of functional capacity, and specific systolic and diastolic echocardiographic indices.
This study is aim to discover the difference of protective effect on comparing Metoprolol administration before cardiac reperfusion combined with remote ischemic post-conditioning (RIPC) in patients with anterior STEMI in China. This study sought to find possible strategy on ameliorate the patients with anterior STEMI in China through the mechanisms on cardiac protection before cardiac reperfusion.
The study aim is to investigate whether preoperative heart failure has impact on hemodynamic stability during anesthesia induction by target controlled infusion of anesthesia (TCI) in non-cardiac, non-morbidly obese surgery.
The Researchers are doing this study to find out if the cardiac rehabilitation program can improve measurements of frailty and improve independence, functional abilities, and feelings about health. Frailty can be measured by weakness (as measured by hand grip strength), slowness (as measured by walking speed), low level of physical activity, low energy or self-reported exhaustion, and unintentional weight loss.
In this study 404 patients with heart failure and an ejection fraction of 0.40 or less, with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, will be randomly assigned to standard treatment or standard treatment plus a session of cryoballoon ablation (left atrial balloon cryoablation for pulmonary vein isolation). All patients with either have an ICD or CRT-D/P device implanted or an implantable electrocardiographic monitoring device. The primary study endpoint will be the time to AF burden exceeding 1% over any 30-day period (calculated as the ratio of time spent in AF over total time).16 This AF burden corresponds to 7.2 hours per month. A powered secondary endpoint will be the time to the composite of all-cause mortality and unplanned hospitalization for heart failure.
This pilot study is designed as a multi-centre cohort study determining the degree of LV reverse remodeling in patients with intermediate QRS widths (120-149ms) who undergo CRT implant with transseptal LV leads, and comparing to the average expected reverse remodeling rate in patients with standard transvenous coronary sinus leads and QRS widths ≥150ms.
The Family Sodium Watcher program in this study is designed to improve adherence to a sodium restricted diet in patients with HF using strategies that educate both patients and family caregivers about sodium monitoring and that stress a gradual progressive adaptation to low sodium food for both patients and family caregivers.
The study measure multiple neurohormones in patients with heart failure being treated with Sacubitril/Valsartan in increasing doses over an 8 week period.
The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the evolution of Right Ventricular (RV) function before and after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation, using novel echocardiographic quantification of RV size and function in combination with comprehensive hemodynamic, laboratory and clinical parameters. The findings of the study will enhance prediction of early and late development of postoperative right-sided heart failure (RHF) and subsequent mortality and morbidity. The secondary purpose of the study is to combine echocardiographic, hemodynamic, laboratory, and clinical data to define optimal management strategies of RHF after LVAD implantation.
The primary hypothesis in this trial is that the treatment with vericiguat 10 mg or 15 mg in patients with HFpEF improves the KCCQ PLS (Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire Physical limitation score) compared to placebo after 24 weeks of treatment.
