The Safety and Efficacy of Adjunct Carvedilol in Children With Moderate Heart Failure

2014-07-24 14:35:44 | BioPortfolio

Summary

We would like to see if using Carvedilol in adjunct with Ace inhibitors will increase ejection fraction of the heart under echo. All interpretation of data will be sent to Boston Children's Hospital to be reviewed, which is the primary research center in this study. There are 5 hospitals participating in this study. The population targeted are children with moderate heart failure and must be on Ace inhibitors at the time of enrollment. Our outcome after placing them on Carvedilol is to change their ejection fraction on echo. The patients will be seen every 1-2 weeks, while we will titrate their medication to a maintenance dose. Secondary outcome is to increase quality of life, exercise tolerance and decrease their symptom scores as noted on their questionnaires.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Occlusion of the outflow tract in either the LEFT VENTRICLE or the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This may result from CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS, predisposing heart diseases, complications of surgery, or HEART NEOPLASMS.

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.

Diseases of long duration and generally slow progression. The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (e.g., heart attacks and stroke), CANCER, chronic respiratory diseases (e.g., CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and ASTHMA) and DIABETES MELLITUS.

Pathological conditions involving the HEART including its structural and functional abnormalities.

A voluntary organization concerned with the prevention and treatment of heart and vascular diseases.
