NCT ID: NCT03656263 Not yet recruiting - Anesthesia Clinical Trials

The Clinical Significance of Portal Hypertension After Cardiac Surgery: a Multicenter Prospective Observational Study

Start date: January 2019
Study type: Observational

Portal flow pulsatility detected by Doppler ultrasound is an echographic marker of cardiogenic portal hypertension from right ventricular failure and is associated with adverse outcomes based on previous studies performed at the Montreal Heart Institute. This multicenter prospective cohort study aims to determine if portal flow pulsatility after cardiopulmonary bypass separation is associated with a longer requirement of life support after cardiac surgery.

NCT ID: NCT03554291 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Repurposing a Histamine Antagonist to Benefit Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension

Start date: January 2019
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This is a Phase 2, single-center, randomized placebo controlled trial of famotidine (an H2 receptor antagonist) in adults with pulmonary arterial hypertension. The study will evaluate the safety and clinical efficacy of a 24-week course of famotidine.

NCT ID: NCT03552679 Recruiting - Right Heart Failure Clinical Trials

Serial Multiparametric Evaluation of Right Ventricular Function After Left Ventricular Assist Device Implantation

Start date: June 2018
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

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.

NCT ID: NCT03438825 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Mitral Valve Disease

PRediction of Early PostoperAtive Right vEntricular Failure in Mitral Valve Replacement/Repair Patients

Start date: October 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The PREPARE-MVR (PRediction of Early PostoperAtive Right vEntricular failure in Mitral Valve Replacement/Repair patients) Study aims to evaluate those preoperative factors which can predict the early postoperative right ventricular failure or determine the functional shift seen in right ventricular function after mitral valve replacement/repair. The PREPARE-MVR study focuses mainly on echocardiographic (both conventional and advanced) parameters and includes right heart catheterization intraoperatively and in the early postoperative period as gold standard method.

NCT ID: NCT03217331 Recruiting - Right Heart Failure Clinical Trials

CRD-102 for Right Heart Failure in Patients With Left Ventricular Assist Devices

Start date: March 6, 2018
Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This is a Phase 1b/IIa, single centre, non-randomised open-label uncontrolled study to assess safety, effect and PK of oral CRD-102 in patients with RHF associated with the presence of an LVAD.

NCT ID: NCT03202641 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Open Lung Strategy, Gas Distribution and Right Heart Function in ARDS Patients

Start date: October 30, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this interventional crossover study, in intubated and mechanically ventilated Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) patients, is to compare two positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) titration techniques regarding: respiratory mechanics, gas exchange, changes in aeration, ventilation/perfusion matching its impact on cardiac function, especially the right heart (RH). The PEEP titration techniques are: PEEP selection based on low PEEP/high FiO2 table ("PEEPARDSnet") and lung recruitment maneuver (LRM) plus PEEP titration("PEEPLRM").

NCT ID: NCT03073629 Recruiting - Right Heart Failure Clinical Trials

Assessing Outcomes in ED Patients With RV Failure

Start date: January 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Millions of Americans seek emergency care for acute shortness of breath, and many undergo computerized tomographic pulmonary angiography (CTPA) testing that is negative for acute disease. Management of patients with persistent shortness of breath despite normal testing continues to pose a challenge for clinicians. Right ventricular (RV) failure is a common cause of dyspnea that brings patients to the emergency department (ED), however, it is often not considered in the differential diagnosis, remains unrecognized, or patients are not properly followed up once diagnosed. Delays in diagnosis and management of RV failure are associated with poor outcomes. The investigators propose a novel clinical pathway, which entails identifying and enrolling patients with RV failure in the ED, then referring them to a specialized cardiovascular clinic where they will receive a standardized evaluation and management plan. Our hypothesis is that management of RV failure, through this pathway, will improve patient outcomes when compared to standard care. The primary outcome will assess 1-year unscheduled healthcare visits.

NCT ID: NCT02644616 Completed - Clinical trials for Tricuspid Regurgitation

The Safety and Efficacy of Tolvaptan for Patients With Tricuspid Regurgitation and Right Heart Failure After Left Heart Valves Replacement

Start date: November 2014
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

The investigators research the early improvement of fluid retention and mid-term prognosis through the administration of tolvaptan for the patient with tricuspid regurgitation and right heart failure after left heart valves replacement.

NCT ID: NCT01777607 Recruiting - Right Heart Failure Clinical Trials

The Use of Impella RP Support System in Patients With Right Heart Failure

Start date: May 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The use of Impella RP is safe, feasible and provides a hemodynamic benefit in patients with right ventricular failure.

NCT ID: NCT01757522 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Detection of Right Ventricular Dysfunction by 2D Strain During Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrom (ARDS)

Start date: January 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and mechanical ventilation can lead to right ventricular dysfunction and ultimately right ventricular failure by increasing pulmonary vascular resistances and pressure load. This can be prevented by modifying ventilator settings, using vasopressors or inotropes or even by prone positionning.But to do so, right ventricular dysfonction has to be detected. Echocardiography has emerged as a first line tool to diagnose right heart failure. Recently, strain analysis showed promising results to detect early right ventricle abnormalities in other settings such as pulmonary hypertension or scleroderma. We therefore decided to determine whether 2D strain could help detect early right ventricular dysfunction in ARDS.
