Left Atrial Pressure Monitoring to Optimize Heart Failure Therapy

2014-08-27 03:13:47 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this clinical study is to evaluate the safety and clinical effectiveness of use of a physician-directed, patient self-management system, guided by left atrial pressure measurements, for use in patients with heart failure. The system allows patients to adjust their HF medications daily based on a physician-directed prescription plan and their current HF status, similar to the manner in which diabetes patients manage their insulin therapy. The goal of the LAPTOP-HF study is to demonstrate reductions in episodes of worsening heart failure (HF) and hospitalizations in patients who are managed with the left atrial pressure (LAP) management system (treatment group) versus those who receive only the current standard of care (control group).

Description

The Sponsor believes that direct measurements from your heart may provide an accurate, reliable and medically acceptable way of better managing your heart failure prior to your noticing symptoms or being hospitalized. This may enable you and your doctor to take preventative measures, by fine tuning your care including more frequently adjusting your medications with a goal of avoiding hospitalization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A class of drugs whose main indications are the treatment of hypertension and heart failure. They exert their hemodynamic effect mainly by inhibiting the renin-angiotensin system. They also modulate sympathetic nervous system activity and increase prostaglandin synthesis. They cause mainly vasodilation and mild natriuresis without affecting heart rate and contractility.

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.

Application of a life support system that circulates the blood through an oxygenating system, which may consist of a pump, a membrane oxygenator, and a heat exchanger. Examples of its use are to assist victims of smoke inhalation injury, respiratory failure, and cardiac failure.

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.

An impulse-conducting system composed of modified cardiac muscle and having the power of spontaneous rhythmicity and conduction more highly developed than the rest of the heart.
