NCT ID: NCT06404021 Active, not recruiting - Heart Failure Clinical Trials

Electronic Device Implantation Through Remote Guidance

Start date: June 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) implants are limited by availability and costs of field clinical specialist (FCS) bioengineers. This study explores feasibility of remotely supported implantations through an internet based platform, aiming at enhancing efficiency and overcoming geographical or pandemic related barriers. The first phase of the study included programming and phantom assessments in 20 cases followed by 10 remote guided CRT-D and ICD implantations in additional heart failure patients, compared to 20 procedures with FCS on site. Data analysis revealed no significant differences in acute outcomes or electronic parameters at one year follow-up compared to on-site FCS. Finally, this study demonstrates the safety after testing at one year of follow-up.

Prediction of Outcomes in Patients With Chronic Heart Failure Based on Tissue Raman Spectroscopy

Start date: November 1, 2022
Study type: Observational

Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a syndrome complicating heart disease, the prevalence of which has reached epidemic levels. According to global statistics the most common causes of CHF are coronary heart disease (CHD): 26.5%, arterial hypertension (AH):26.2% . The category of patients with CHD complicated by CHF prevails in clinical practice, requiring an optimized approach to determining prognosis in order to improve the effectiveness of therapy. In the literature, this issue has been studied with the use of general clinical, biochemical, instrumental criteria. Nevertheless, the problem of optimized prognosis in patients with CHF remains. Its solution may lie in the study of metabolic parameters of biological media - skin, blood serum by Raman spectroscopy. Skin is an accessible tissue for studying the effects of a wide range of age-dependent noncommunicable diseases, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and chronic kidney disease. We were one of the first to use skin RS as a method of determining renal dysfunction, a necessary component of chronic kidney disease. However, the applicability of RS/SERS in the diagnosis and prognosis of specific diseases, as well as in the collection of statistical data for this analytical approach, remains an open question . Despite the fact that the method is classified as analytical, it can be used to identify not so much specific chemical molecules as their specific loci, which provide vibrations that change the wavelengths of the scattered spectrum. The resulting spectrum can be presented as a metabolic "portrait" of the disease, with the most informative loci, the combination of which is associated with a negative prognosis. The innovative analytical methods of optical spectroscopy proposed in this project provide new level information about hundreds of molecules and their active centers that have prospects as biomarkers. This study aims to determine the clinical relevance of skin and serum RS in patients with CHF, realized on state-of-the-art instrumentation in a comprehensive patient study setting. The research proposed in this project will contribute to the development of high-tech production of new optical devices for rapid diagnosis and prognosis of a wide range of diseases.

Guideline Implementation and Quality of Care in Patients With Heart Failure: the TITRATE-HF Registry

Start date: June 5, 2022
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

SUMMARY Rationale: Quality of Care registries provide valuable insight in guideline adherence and implementation of guideline recommendations in routine clinical practice. Objective: The overall aim of the project is to study the titration of guideline directed medical therapy (GDMT) according to the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) HF 2021 guideline recommendations for patients with heart failure (HF) reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), and mildly reduced ejection fraction (HFmrEF). Study design: The current study is a prospective multi-center national quality of care registry (longitudinal) of regular HF care (as given). Study population: The study population consists of patients with heart failure (de novo HF, chronic HF and worsening HF). Study setting is outpatient or inpatient (during admission). Patient sample is set at a minimum of 4000 patients, but can be expanded during the course of the registry project. Participating sites: all hospitals with dedicated HF outpatient clinic in the Netherlands can participate. Data: aggregated data Intervention: none / no Main study parameters/endpoints: The main parameters of quality of HF care are the adherence to guideline recommendation in terms of percentage (%) drug prescription, percentage (%) target dose (order, speed) and reason not to adhere to the guideline (intolerance, side-effects, maximum tolerated dose). The main endpoints for prognosis are the number of HF related hospitalizations and all-cause mortality during follow-up. Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, benefit and group relatedness: There is no risk in participation, no intervention and no active involvement of patients for specific activities in the study. The project is a registration of care as given (standard care) to the participating subject with heart failure.

NCT ID: NCT06363110 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Chronic Heart Failure With Reduced Ejection Fraction

An Observational Study to Learn More About Vericiguat Treatment Patterns and Its Safety in People With Chronic Heart Failure With Reduced Ejection Fraction in Routine Medical Care in the United States

Start date: April 10, 2024
Study type: Observational

This is an observational study in which data already collected from people with chronic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) are studied. In observational studies, only observations are made, without participants receiving any advice or any changes to healthcare. Chronic HFrEF is a long-term condition in which the heart becomes weak and cannot pump enough blood to the rest of the body with each heartbeat. This leads to a reduced supply of oxygen, which the body requires to function properly. The study treatment, vericiguat, works by increasing the activity of an enzyme called soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC), which relaxes the blood vessels and allows more blood to flow. As a result, the heart can pump better. It is already approved for doctors to prescribe to people with chronic HFrEF in the United States (US) who are stabilized after a recent "decompensation event". The treatment with vericiguat starts at a low dose, which should be increased gradually to the target dose based on how a patient tolerates the treatment. The participants in this study are already receiving treatment with vericiguat as part of their regular care from their doctors. The main purpose of the study is to learn more about the dosage pattern of vericiguat in people with chronic HFrEF in the US. To do this, researchers will collect the following information for 3 months after participants' first dose of vericiguat: - starting dose of vericiguat - daily changes in dosage pattern - time taken to reach the target dose - number and percentage of participants: - with specific changes in dosage pattern - reaching the target dose of vericiguat They will also collect information on how often low blood pressure or fainting occurs, which are well known events in people with chronic HFrEF. The data will come from the participants' information stored in a database called the HealthVerity HF dataset. Data collected will be from people with chronic HFrEF who started taking vericiguat between January 2021 and April 2023. Researchers will only look at the health records of participants in the US. Researchers will track participants' data and will collect information for a maximum of 6 months before and 3 months after their first dose of vericiguat. In this study, only available data from routine care are collected. No visits or tests are required as part of this study.

Impact of a Letter Encouraging Pneumococcal Vaccination on the 1-year Vaccination Rate in Heart Failure Patients With a Primary Care Physician

Start date: January 2, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Heart failure affects more than 1.5 million people in France, resulting in over 70,000 deaths and more than 165,000 hospitalizations each year. Viral and bacterial infections are frequently associated with episodes of acute heart failure in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Lower respiratory tract infections, such as influenza and pneumococcus, are common causes of hospitalization for decompensated heart failure, leading to increased morbidity and mortality. Studies have shown that pneumococcal vaccination can reduce the risks of heart attack or stroke in patients with heart failure. However, despite vaccination recommendations, coverage rates remain low, especially for pneumococcus. In this study, we will evaluate the impact of an incentive letter for pneumococcal vaccination on one-year hospitalization rate in patients with heart failure.

Renal-based Optimization of QUADruple Therapy in Patients With Heart Failure With Reduced Ejection Fraction.

Start date: February 14, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this clinical trial is to evaluate guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) up-titration in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.The main question it aims to answer is the improvement in prescription rate and dose uptitration of quadruple GDMT in patients with HFrEF, assessed by a weighed composite score. Participants will be randomized towards control (standard of care, SOC) or intervention group. Researchers will compare SOC with protocol-based up-titration to see if the protocolized optimization improves prescription rate of GDMT.

Cardiac Cachexia in Advanced Heart Failure

Start date: January 25, 2024
Study type: Observational

Heart failure is a condition in which the heart stops pumping effectively, causing symptoms such as breathlessness or leg swelling. It affects around 900,000 people in the United Kingdom. As our population gets older, this number will continue rise. It is a condition with poor overall survival - nearly 50% of patients die within 5 years of being diagnosed with heart failure. Cardiac cachexia is a complex condition associated with heart failure. There is general loss of muscle with or without loss of fat in cardiac cachexia. The main feature of cardiac cachexia is therefore unintentional weight loss in heart failure patients. The reason why it develops is poorly understood currently. Importantly, some studies have shown that cardiac cachexia is more likely to lead to poorer outcomes (such as death) in the patients who develop it. However, there have been no studies, to our knowledge, that look at this condition in those patients who have very weak hearts ('advanced heart failure'). The investigators are looking to clarify how common cardiac cachexia is within advanced heart failure patients, and secondly how outcomes compare to those advanced heart failure patients that do not have the condition. With this in mind, the investigators will be able to establish the fuller impact cardiac cachexia has on survival and outcomes in patients with advanced heart failure. This study will involve assessing a group of ~200 advanced heart failure patients for cardiac cachexia to establish an estimate of how common it is overall. The investigators will then follow up the patients over a year, to see if we can assess the impact of cardiac cachexia on survival and outcomes. Overall, the investigators therefore hope this study will give a more robust picture on the true impact of cardiac cachexia in advanced heart failure. By doing so, the investigators will firstly highlight its importance to other clinicians who will better be able to monitor and or diagnose it, and secondly pave way for more research on a potential treatment strategy for this condition.

NCT ID: NCT06078280 Active, not recruiting - Heart Failure Clinical Trials

Feasibility and Efficacy Study of the CardioPulmonary Management (CPM) System in Patients With Chronic Heart Failure (BETA)

Start date: September 27, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The primary purpose for this study is to support the hypothesis (pilot data) that the use of the CardioPumonary Management (CPM) system reduces the rate of heart failure (HF) related events and the related healthcare cost. The study will also measure the impact on quality of care and patient satisfaction. In order to support the primary objective, the study will compare the outcomes and costs for patients using the CPM system against those who are not. This can either be done using institutions averages, if available, or through a control group.
