The goal of CELL-VAD Pilot trial is to investigate a personalized stem cell therapy approach for patients with advanced non-ischemic chronic heart failure (NICM) who are supported by LVAD. In the clinical trial, the investigators aim to enroll 10 patients with NICM, scheduled for LVAD implantation. After successful LVAD implantation, patients will be enrolled and followed for 2 months to allow for postoperative rehabilitation and heart failure medical therapy and LVAD support optimization. All patients will then undergo autologous CD34+ cell therapy which will be intracoronaryly delivered to the target myocardium using NOGA electromechanical mapping system. All patients will be followed for 6 months after cell therapy. At baseline, and at 1, 3, and 6 months after cell therapy, the investigators will perform comprehensive clinical evaluation.
Heart failure in adults with congenital heart disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Patients with systemic right ventricle (SRV) and single ventricle (SV) are particularly at risk1, 2, 3. There are no specific recommendations for the management of heart failure in adults with congenital heart disease, whose management is based on "general cardiology" recommendations4,5. Sacubitril/Valsartan is validated as a treatment for heart failure in adults with acquired pathological left ventricular dysfunction (left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) < 40%, New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class II and III despite optimal heart failure therapy)7. Although this molecule is used in current practice in patients with congenital heart disease, published data are limited 6-10. The aim of our work is to describe the efficacy and tolerability of Sacubitril/Valsartan in the treatment of chronic heart failure on VDS and VU through an observational, prospective, multicenter registry. The latest heart failure treatment guidelines, updated in 202111, recommend the addition of type 2 sodium-glucose co-transport inhibitors in heart failure patients with impaired ejection fraction (class IA recommendation). Two molecules are used in current practice: dapagliflozin and empagliflozin, at a single dosage of 10 mg/day. We will also be collecting data on the efficacy and safety of iSGLT2. It should be noted that, for practical reasons, there may be a delay between the end of the 1st study period (ISACC1) of one year and the start of the 2nd study period (ISACC2). Follow-up examinations carried out during the study period will not differ from those currently recommended in current practice5.
While cardiac resynchronization therapy remains the mainstay for advanced HF, it is not always feasible due to unfavorable anatomy of coronary sinus or pacing characteristics. In such cases, left bundle branch area pacing itself or left bundle optimized cardiac resynchronization therapy could be a rescue therapy for failed or unsuccessful biventricular cardiac resynchronization therapy. However, the efficacy and safety of left bundle branch area pacing (or left bundle optimized cardiac resynchronization therapy) as rescue therapy for biventricular cardiac resynchronization therapy is largely hypothetic and lack concrete evidence still. Therefore, there is an unmet need for the registry purposed for left bundle branch area pacing among heart failure with mid-range (or mildly reduced) ejection fraction and heart failure with reduced ejection fraction patients to investigate its efficacy and safety. This study aims to investigate the efficacy and safety of left bundle branch area pacing in heart failure patients with ejection fraction below normal using Selectra catheters.
This protocol is designed to compare the effectiveness of two dietary intervention doses for patients with heart failure (HF) and malnutrition risk or malnutrition at hospital discharge. This random order crossover design will provide evidence as to whether the provision of dinner meals alone versus all 3 daily meals to patients' homes is more effective at improving malnutrition risk score, and secondarily unplanned emergency department visits and readmissions.
This study will explore the potential benefits of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors in preventing cardiac ischemia and cardiopulmonary edema in patients with acute decompensated heart failure during weaning from ventilators.
Heart failure is a common disease, affecting 2-3% of the population in the western world. About 30% of patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction display signs of electrical dyssynchrony on ECG, usually left bundle branch block (LBBB), which is associated with a worse prognosis. Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) reduce mortality for patients with dyssynchronic heart failure, defined as ejection fraction (EF) = or < 35% and LBBB. About 1/3 of the patients that fit CRT criteria will not respond to CRT. Which patients that will turn out to be non-responders cannot be anticipated beforehand. We have started a clinical study to collect blood samples, heart tissue and clinical data from heart failure patients eligible for CRT and a control group of heart failure patients on medical therapy. Patients will be assessed before CRT implantation or early after initiation of medical treatment, at 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. Blood samples and tissue will be analysed in the search for (i) biomarkers to separate CRT responders from non-responders and (ii) mechanisms behind the remodelling observed in CRT and with medical therapy.
This is a 26-week, open label, single-arm prospective evaluation of the effects of sodium glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibition on cardiac biomarkers, myocardial remodeling and patient reported outcomes in heart failure with both impaired and preserved left ventricular fraction.
The goal of this registry-based observational study is to establish a comprehensive management plan, which focus on medical therapy, cardiac rehabilitation and active post-market surveillance of medical devices, in patients with cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Patients with CVD mainly refers to four groups of patients：1) post-percutaneous coronary intervention (post-PCI) patients; 2) patients with heart failure (HF); 3) patients with cardiometabolic diseases (CMD); 4) patients with structural heart disease (SHD), and the detailed definition of each group can be found in "Eligibility" section. The main questions this study aims to answer are: - the effectiveness of exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation in improving cardiac function, reducing CVD recurrence and mortality, and promoting quality of life for patients with CVD; - the feasibility of registry-based active post-market surveillance of high-risk medical devices used in cardiovascular surgeries, such as PCI, heart valve replacement, and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT); - the utilization of multiomics datasets to identify and dissect cardiovascular heterogeneity in both healthy and diseased populations and to guide precision medicine in patients with CVD; - the analysis and evaluation of the prescription patterns and drug response in patients with CVD.
This study intends to investigate the current status of disease management and quality of life of patients with chronic heart failure and their family caregivers, explore the relationship between the two sides of disease management and quality of life, help nurses identify the influencing factors of quality of life of patients with chronic heart failure and their family caregivers, and carry out family-centered care in the future. This study intends to investigate the current status of disease management and quality of life of patients with chronic heart failure and their family caregivers, explore the relationship between disease management and quality of life of both sides, and help nurses identify the influencing factors affecting the quality of life of patients with chronic heart failure and their family caregivers, so as to carry out family-centered care in the future. To provide theoretical basis for improving the quality of life of both parties.
This is a two-center, prospective randomized controlled trial. The aim of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy of early left bundle branch pacing for cardiac resynchronization therapy and guideline-directed medical therapy in heart failure with mild-reduced ejection fraction.
