NCT ID: NCT03001141 Suspended - Clinical trials for Heart Failure, Unspecified

Study Protocol/ Registry of MultiPoint™ Pacing in Brazil

NCT ID: NCT02997670 Suspended - Clinical trials for Heart Failure, Systolic

Quartet Lead With Defibrillator Multisite Algorithmic Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy Optimisation

Start date: September 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) improves outcomes and symptoms in selected patients with heart failure. However, around one third of suitable patients do not demonstrate benefit following device implantation when assessed by echocardiography (heart scanning). This group has poorer outcomes. Response rate can be enhanced by altering timing delays between the pacing leads, but some patients still fail to improve. Quadripolar left ventricular leads are now widely used in CRT. The lead's four poles increase the number of conformations available to the programmer, allowing multiple vectors to be programmed simultaneously or sequentially. This allows programming to avoid, for example, a patch of scar and find an area that will respond better to pacing. This technique is known as multi-site pacing. CRT is often implanted along with a defibrillator lead in the right ventricle, known as CRT-D. The defibrillator lead offers further combinations for pacing. Goal of Research To evaluate an algorithm for assessing different multi-site pacing combinations in optimisation of CRT Outline The investigators will recruit 24 consecutive patients undergoing CRT-D implantation for conventional indications at our hospital. At baseline, patients will undergo echocardiography, exercise testing and assessments of functional ability and quality of life. The device will be implanted as standard. Optimisation will be performed with an algorithm using different vector combinations and assessing the heart's efficiency through echocardiography and invasive pressure monitoring. The pacemaker will be programmed with standard settings. After twelve weeks, the baseline investigations and optimisation algorithm will be repeated and the device programmed according to the maximum efficiency. After a further 12 weeks, the same parameters will be measured to look for improved response to CRT. Potential Benefit To increase the response rate to cardiac resynchronisation therapy and improve reliability of the technique

NCT ID: NCT02662439 Suspended - Heart Failure Clinical Trials

Bioimpedance Analysis in Chronic Heart Failure

Start date: February 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The aim of this study is to investigate whether the objective measurement of fluid overload by bioimpedance analysis (Body Composition Monitor-BCM) in patient with acute decompensated heart failure would improve the diuretic therapy.

NCT ID: NCT02656329 Suspended - Heart Failure Clinical Trials

International Study to Determine if AdreView Heart Function Scan Can be Used to Identify Patients With Mild or Moderate Heart Failure (HF) That Benefit From Implanted Medical Device

Start date: January 2016
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This is an event-driven Phase IIIb, multicentre, randomised, clinical study to demonstrate the efficacy of AdreView™ imaging for appropriately guiding the decision of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implantation, in New York Health Association (NYHA) class II and III heart failure patients with 25%≤left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF)≤35%, and in particular, for identifying patients who are at low risk for sudden cardiac death and who would not benefit, or may suffer harm, from implantation of an ICD device.

NCT ID: NCT02545582 Suspended - Clinical trials for Congestive Heart Failure

VITARIA Registry Study

Start date: August 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

This registry will observe patients with symptomatic heart failure with implantable vagus nerve stimulation to provide insights into safety and efficacy during clinical routine.

NCT ID: NCT02203383 Suspended - Heart Failure Clinical Trials

The Effect of CRT on the Hypercapnic Ventilatory Response

Start date: June 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Central Sleep Apnoea (CSA) affects up to half of patients with severe heart failure and is associated with a poor prognosis. CSA is manifest as episodes of deep breathing interspersed with very shallow or absent breathing and is largely due to an exaggerated response to rising carbon dioxide in the blood, which normally drives how hard we breathe. Cardiac Resynchronization therapy (CRT), in which a pacemaker is implanted to improve co-ordinated contraction of the heart, has been shown to reduce the severity of CSA in some patient groups. We aim to determine whether this improvement is due to normalization of the body's response to carbon dioxide in the blood. Our hypothesis is that CRT improves CSA by normalizing the brain's response to carbon dioxide.

NCT ID: NCT01868880 Suspended - Clinical trials for Heart Rate Control in ICD Patients With Heart Failure

Effect of Ivabradine and Beta-blockers Combination Versus Beta-blockers Up-titration on Right Ventricular Pacing

Start date: February 2016
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

The aim of this prospective, randomized and controlled trial is to evaluate the use of the ivabradine in combination to a low-dose of beta-blocker (bisoprolol) versus up-titration of beta-blocker (bisoprolol) to obtain heart rate (HR) control with reduction in RV pacing in single-chamber or dual chambers ICD recipients HF patients with moderate to severe left ventricular dysfunction (FE ≤ 40%) and an heart rate ≥ 70 bpm in sinus rhythm over a 12-months follow up. Besides the investigators want to assess if the combination of ivabradine to a low-dose of beta-blocker (bisoprolol) versus up-titration of beta-blocker (bisoprolol) may determine a lower degree of left ventricular dysfunction progression, the reduction of ventricular arrhythmias burden and ICD appropriate therapy occurrence and the improvement of quality of life in ICD heart failure patients.
