Pilot Study Using Echocardiography to Evaluate Patients With Heart Failure and Dyssynchrony Who Have a CRT-D Device

2014-07-23 21:09:01 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Out of all the patients that receive a CRT-D ( a dual chamber pacemaker with defibrillator ) for cardiac resynchronization therapy there is approximately one-third that do not respond. We believe that by using a simple technique that includes routine echocardiography that are normally performed in these patients could help us better understand how to program their device to reach better optimization.

A Study of Continuous Infusions of HNO (Nitroxyl) Donor in Patients With Heart Failure and Impaired Systolic Function

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of BMS-986231 on systolic and diastolic parameters in patients with heart failure and low ejection fraction.

LV Diastolic Dysfunction Among the Patients With Systolic Heart Failure-clinical Significance and Prognostic Importance.

Aims: To test the hypothesis that Diastolic dysfunction severity correlates with adverse clinical outcome in patients with systolic heart failure.

Blind Assessment of the Concordance Between the Administered Treatment and the Recommendations of a Medical Algorithm Decision Support Software in Systolic Heart Failure

The PREMEDIC is a prospective, observational study. Patients hospitalized for Systolic Heart Failure will be enrolled and health data will be collected at hospital admission and during hos...

Assessment of Cardiac Functional Reserve in Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction (HF-PEF)

This study will compare the ability of the heart to increase its contractile performance during stress in patients with a history of heart failure without systolic dysfunction and in contr...

Psychosocial Patterns and Prognosis in Patients With Heart Failure

This prospective observational study is designed to confirm the prognostic and economic impact of depression in ambulatory patients with systolic or diastolic heart failure, to explore the...

Pathophysiology of Chronic Systolic Heart Failure. A View from the Periphery.

Heart failure is a common form of heart disease associated with progressive exercise intolerance and high risk of adverse clinical outcome events. The pathophysiology of chronic systolic heart failure...

The heart regulates the endocrine response to heart failure: cardiac contribution to circulating neprilysin.

Heart failure (HF) is accompanied by major neuroendocrine changes including the activation of the natriuretic peptide (NP) pathway. Using the unique model of patients undergoing implantation of the CA...

Effect of Interleukin-1 Blockade on Left Ventricular Systolic Performance and Work: A Post-Hoc Pooled Analysis of Two Clinical Trials.

Interleukin-1 (IL-1) blockade appears to improve anaerobic exercise in patients with systolic heart failure through improved left ventricular systolic performance. However, it is unclear whether IL-1 ...

Left atrial dilatation in systolic heart failure: a marker of poor prognosis, not just a buffer between the left ventricle and pulmonary circulation.

The relation between systolic pulmonary pressure (sPAP) and left atrium in patients with heart failure (HF) is unclear. Diastolic dysfunction, expressed as restrictive mitral filling pattern (RMP), an...

Risk of Incident Heart Failure in Patients With Diabetes and Asymptomatic Left Ventricular Systolic Dysfunction.

Although diabetes is well known to be common in prevalent heart failure (HF) and portends a poor prognosis, the role of diabetes in the development of incident HF is less well understood. We studied t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.

A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Heart murmurs which are systolic in timing. They occur between the first and the second HEART SOUNDS, between the closure of MITRAL VALVE and TRICUSPID VALVE and the closure of semilunar aortic and pulmonary valves. Systolic murmurs include ejection murmurs and regurgitant murmurs.

A selective beta-1-adrenergic partial agonist. Because it is a partial agonist (DRUG PARTIAL AGONISM) it acts like an agonist when sympathetic activity is low and as an antagonist when sympathetic activity is high. It reduces MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA and improves ventricular function in patients with mild to moderate heart failure. In patients with severe heart failure it has been shown to produce benefits in systolic and diastolic function.
