Observational Study of Prosthetic Tissue Aortic and Mitral Heart Valve

2014-07-23 21:43:39 | BioPortfolio


This study is a multi-center, prospective, non-randomized, observational study. The objectives of this study are to confirm the clinical safety and efficacy of the SJM Epic valve.


This study is a multi-centered, multi-country, prospective, non-randomized, observational study, without concurrent or matched controls, conducted under a common protocol. Bayesian methods will be used for the design and analysis of this study. The Bayesian model will determine if the data for the valve configurations are poolable. Bayesian methods also provide a means of determining the appropriate stopping time for the study based on the amount of information generated. The objectives of this study are to confirm the clinical safety and efficacy of the SJM Epic Valve by establishing the following:

- adverse effect rates

- clinical status as indicated by NYHA functional classification

- hemodynamic performance

Prevalence, clinical characteristics and outcomes of valvular atrial fibrillation in a cohort of African patients with acute heart failure: insights from the THESUS-HF registry.

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is the commonest cause of valvular heart disease and a common cause of heart failure in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Atrial fibrillation (AF) complicates RHD, precipitates a...

Stroke and bleeding risk scores in patients with atrial fibrillation and valvular heart disease: evaluating 'valvular heart disease' in a nationwide cohort study.

Substantial interest has been directed towards stroke risk stratification in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) but prior studies have focused on AF without significant valvular heart disease (VHD...

Valvular heart disease: tricuspid regurgitation is the new frontier.

Stress echo beyond coronary artery disease. is it the holy grail of cardiovascular imaging?

Stress echocardiography (SE) is a very useful method in clinical practice, since it offers important information both for patient's functional status and hemodynamic changes during stress. Therefore, ...

Changes of body composition after valve surgery in patients with mitral valve disease.

Patients with chronic heart failure have alteration in body composition as a reduction in fat mass, lean body mass and bone mass. However, body wasting in valvular heart disease and the impact of corr...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cardiac manifestation of systemic rheumatological conditions, such as RHEUMATIC FEVER. Rheumatic heart disease can involve any part the heart, most often the HEART VALVES and the ENDOCARDIUM.

Disease-related laceration or tearing of tissues of the heart, including the free-wall MYOCARDIUM; HEART SEPTUM; PAPILLARY MUSCLES; CHORDAE TENDINEAE; and any of the HEART VALVES. Pathological rupture usually results from myocardial infarction (HEART RUPTURE, POST-INFARCTION).

Diseases characterized by pathological irregularities in the HEART CONDUCTION SYSTEM. They may be associated with other heart diseases and syndromes (e.g., BRUGADA SYNDROME; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASE, HEART BLOCKS), isolated or may result from injuries. You can have a conduction disorder without having an arrhythmia, but some arrhythmias arise from conduction disorders. OMIM: 601144.

The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the left HEART VENTRICLE. Its measurement is an important aspect of the clinical evaluation of patients with heart disease to determine the effects of the disease on cardiac performance.

Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
