Circulating RNAs in Acute Congestive Heart Failure

The purpose of this American Heart Association-funded and NIH-funded study is to examine circulating RNAs in the acute CHF setting, how they change with decongestive therapy, and their function in vitro and in vivo. The investigators are testing the hypothesis that ex-RNA levels change significantly during decongestion therapy and can be used as a marker of those individua...

dbGaP Protocol: The Pediatric Cardiac Genetics Consortium (PCGC)

Background: Researchers do not know much about the causes of congenital heart disease (CHD). They do know that many factors play a role. Some factors are environmental. Some are genetic. But few specific factors have been identified. And researchers do not know how many involve genes. They want to study data that has already been collected from people with CHD and their ...

Contegra Versus Pulmonary Homograft for Right Ventricular Outflow Tract Reconstruction in Newborns

Pulmonary homografts are standard substitutes for right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction in congenital heart surgery. Unfortunately shortage and conduit failure secondary to early calcifications and shrinking are observed particularly for small sized conduits in younger patients. In neonates, Contegra® 12mm could be a valuable alternative, but conflicting evidence ...

Evaluation of Pain Perception and Heart Rate in Children Who Received Dental Anesthesia

The aim of this single-blind split-mouth study is to compare traditional syringe technique versus computer-controlled Wand® anesthetic System to evaluate pain perception, assessed with Visual Numerical Rating Scale, and heart rate in children requiring at least two tooth extractions on opposite sides of the maxilla. The investigators suppose that the feeling of fear during...

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and mechanistic effects of spironolactone, an aldosterone receptor antagonist, on sympathetic nervous system activity and right heart function and remodeling in patients with chronic right heart failure.

Comparison Between Prakash and Eight Figure of Sternum Closure

Comparison between Parakash p.punjabi way and Eight figure in sternum closure post open heart surgery

Comparison of Stethee® to the Conventional Stethoscope for Auscultation of Simulated Heart Sounds

The objective of this study is to compare the relative capability of Stethee® (new wireless digital stethoscope) and 3M™ Littmann® Classic III™ (conventional stethoscope) in the identification of manikin-simulated heart sounds by medical doctors. A randomised, non-blinded, two-period crossover, non-inferiority design will be used to compare the acoustic performance of...

Blood Flow Restriction Training in Chronic Heart Failure: an Effective Training Strategy?

The purpose of this current study proposal is to identify the potential physiological adaptations arising from a combined BFR+HIIT training intervention in CHF patients. We hypothesise that the addition of BFR to HIIT will increase whole-body V̇O2peak by promoting vascular and skeletal muscle adaptations above that seen with HIIT alone. The secondary outcomes of this study...

Drug Use Investigation of Selara Tablets (an Investigation for Chronic Heart Failure)

Secondary Data Collection Study; Safety And Effectiveness Of Selara Under Japanese Medical Practice

Administration of Prothrombin Complex Concentrate vs. Standard Transfusion During/After Heart Transplantation

This study is comparing the use of Kcentra vs. standard transfusion in patients undergoing heart transplantation surgery. Half of the patients will receive Kcentra, while the other half will receive fresh frozen plasma.

Quantitative Assessment of RV Strain Using cMRI Following Catheter Intervention on PE

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a condition in which the vessels carrying blood to the lungs become suddenly blocked, usually by a blood clot. There are a number of adverse consequences that result, with one of the most significant being strain on the right side of the heart (which must push blood through the blocked arteries to the lungs). Although this strain on the righ...

The Diagnostic Value of Acupoint Sensitization Based on Stable Angina Pectoris

Investigators adopt cross-sectional study design to carry out the exemplary research in the aspects of disease diagnosis.This study is designed to confirm the hypothesis "acupoint sensitization is associated with a severity of angina pectoris, which may contribute to the diagnosis of stable angina pectoris". After the eligible participants recruited in group, the coronary a...

The Effect of Personal Activity Intelligence Versus 10,000 Steps Daily on Cardiorespiratory Fitness

A high physical fitness can prevent cardiovascular disease. Which form of exercise training is efficient at improving fitness is well known. The challenge is to get people to do it. Personal activity intelligence (PAI) is an algorithm developed for this challenge. It gives a score that tells the users whether they are active enough to achieve the maximum health benefit of e...

INsTantenous wavE-Free Ratio-guided PCI Versus Fractional Flow REserve-Guided PCI in rouTine Clinical Practice, Prospective, Multicenter Registry

The current study sought to evaluate the clinical relevance of iFR-guided strategy in real world clinical practice using unrestricted study population from stable angina to acute coronary syndrome including acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Previous abundant historical data of FFR-guided strategy will be also included as historical control to validate the iF...

The Effectiveness of Biofeedback for Individuals With Long-term Post-concussive Symptoms

Most concussions resolve within 7-10 days, but approximately 40% of individuals do not fully recover and suffer from persistent post-concussive symptoms. This 8-week intervention study will evaluate the efficacy of heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback and neurofeedback on reducing the number and severity of concussion symptoms.

Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy Versus Rate-responsive Pacing in Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction

Half of patients with heart failure have normal heart pumping function (Heart failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction, HFpEF), most commonly characterised by breathlessness on exercise. A number of mechanisms are responsible, but frequently patients are unable to raise their heart rate on exercise. This can be treated by a 'rate-responsive pacemaker' (RRP), which detects e...

Cardiac Injury in Patients With Influenza

This study investigate the prevalence of elevated biomarkers of cardiac injury in patients with suspected influenza infection and the prognostic implication on the composite endpoint of death of any cause, hospitalization due to myocardial infarction, unstable angina, heart failure and stroke.

Understanding the Mechanisms of Diastolic Dysfunction

Heart failure is a clinical syndrome marked by breathlessness, even at low levels of exertion, general fatigue, and fluid retention and is estimated to affect 5.1 million people in the United States. Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) means that the heart pumps enough blood to the body, but patients still have terrible symptoms. It is estimated to accoun...
