Some patients end up having the need to do cardiac surgeries. , and consequently suffer complications associated with the surgical process due to...

Dyspnea Assessment in Hemodialysis Patients

Shortness of breath is very common among patients on dialysis for kidney failure; however, its causes are often not understood. This study will explore the lungs and the heart of these patients to determine the causes of shortness of breath. The amount of salt in the body tissues, which tends to accumulate in dialysis patients and can also cause shortness of breath, will al...

The purpose of the trial is to evaluate the safety, usability and performance of the V-LAP™ System in adult subjects with New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III Heart Failure.

Simvastatin Therapy in Patients With Dilated Cardiomyopathy.

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is the most common childhood cardiomyopathy and is associated with significant early morbidity and mortality. About half of patients die or require heart transplantation within 5 years of diagnosis. The medical therapy for DCM with heart failure includes anti-congestive medications and antiplatelet therapy. Those who fail to improve within the f...

Exercise Intolerance in Heart Failure

The investigators are studying whether metabolic abnormalities in cardiac and skeletal muscle in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) are associated with debilitating exercise intolerance.

Counter-referral System Improvement Collaborative

Coordination between different levels of care has been identified as one of the main components of care among people with chronic diseases. In this sense, an adequate referral and counter-reference system facilitates the management of the care process with timely access to the required referral. The objective of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of a multicompon...

Treatment of GHD Associated With CHF

Aim of the current study is to assess the cardiovascular effects of GH replacement therapy in patients with coexisting GHD and CHF

Vascular Functions in Myeloma Patients During Anti-tumor Therapy

Treatment options for multiple myeloma have increased significantly over the last years with the approval of immunomodulatory drugs (IMiDs) and proteasome inhibitors (PIs). These therapies have markedly improved overall survival for these patients to a median of 5-7 years. Due to the advanced age, the myeloma patient collective has a high prevalence of pre-existing cardiova...

November 13, 2015 - Continuity of Care

On November 13th 2015, a terrorist attack killed 129 victims in Paris. An emergency crisis unit (CUMP) has been activated in Paris in the days following the attack and a subunit was in charge to answer to the phone calls of victims and their relatives. The purpose of this observational study is to document the evolution of psychiatric symptoms among subjects who called the...

The Effect of Simvastatin Combined With Ezetimibe in Patients With Stable Angina and Diabetes

In this study, simvastatin combined with Ezeimebum was used to enhance lipid reduction, and IVUS was used to evaluate the volume and composition of coronary plaque before and after treatment. The aim is to evaluate the overall intervention effect of Ezeimebum on stable angina pectoris with diabetes mellitus on the basis of statins.

The "ABCDE" Score as a Five-step Vascular Ultrasound Examination in Heart Failure

Heart failure (HF) is a clinical syndrome caused by structural and/or functional cardiac abnormalities, resulting in a reduced cardiac output and/or elevated intra-cardiac pressures at rest or during stress. It is the leading cause of hospitalization in Internal Medicine departments. This study aims at exploring evidence of the importance of ultrasound in HF both for ...

Optimal Left Ventricular Lead Positioning During Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy; Comparison of Two Methods of Targeting

Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy (CRT) is a well-known treatment for patients with heart failure. It is a special pacemaker that consists of three pacing wires, which are implanted in the right upper and bottom chambers of the heart and via a vein on the surface of the main pumping chamber (left bottom chamber). CRT helps by improving co- ordination between the top and the...

SyncAV Study: Investigation of the Efficacy of the SyncAV Fusion Pacing Algorithm on Exercise

In patients with weak pumping function of the heart, uncoordinated contraction of the chambers can be corrected using a cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) pacemaker. These devices make patients live longer by improving how the heart pumps and reducing symptoms such as breathlessness. However, not all patients benefit from CRT and programming devices optimally can great...

Loop Isolation-based Uploading Pre-conditioning

Myocardial protection is of crucial importance for surgical coronary revascularization in patients with ischaemic heart diseases. The investigators proposed loop isolation-based uploading preconditioning to protect heart from ischemic-reperfusion damage (LiuPhD) as a novel cardioprotective strategy, and applied to patients who underwent on-pump coronary artery bypass grafti...

Effectiveness of a Repetitive Use of 24-hour Levosimendan Infusions in Patients With Severe Systolic Heart Failure in Order to Prevent Rehospitalizations

Rehospitalizations due to exacerbation of chronic heart failure are an important problem for patients suffering from heart failure. Rehospitalzations lead to worse prognosis, have an impact on the quality of life and have a negative financial impact on the health care system. Currently, studies are being conducted on the efficacy of levosimendan in the prevention of ...

Pulsewatch: Smartwatch Monitoring for Atrial Fibrillation After Stroke

The goal of this research study is to develop a smartphone application capable of monitoring paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (pAF) in people who have survived a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) and are age 50 and older. The study team plans to develop a highly effective and easy to use cardiovascular surveillance system to monitor patients for pAF on a nearly contin...

Short Interval Resveratrol Trial in Cardiovascular Surgery

Major Problem People with diabetes have an increased risk of heart disease, heart failure, and death from a cardiovascular cause. Diabetes prevents efficient metabolism of fuel, causes inflammation and vascular disease that blocks normal blood flow, and inhibits the function of the heart after injury. These changes make diabetics more susceptible to heart attacks and heart...

Treating Heart Failure With hPSC-CMs

Heart failure has a high morbidity and mortality because the heart is one of the least regenerative organs in a human body. Drug treatments for heart failure manage symptoms but do not restore lost myocytes. Cellular replacement therapy is a potential approach to repair damaged myocardial tissue, restore cardiac function, which has become a new strategy for the treatment of...
