To compare heart function, symptoms, exercise capacity and quality of life in patients with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and Atrial Fibrillation (AF)before and after catheter ablation. ...
The purpose of this clinical study is to collect safety and performance data to support a demonstration of substantial equivalence of the Catheter Robotics Remote Catheter System to predic...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to evaluate the potential benefits of a new heart failure diagnostic system for heart failure patients with implanted cardiac resynchronization therap...
Acute heart failure is a life threatening condition requiring rapid diagnosis and treatment. However, the differentiation between heart failure and other conditions presenting with acute d...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performance of a new sensor-based diagnostic feature, which has been implemented in a cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) device. This tria...
Atrial fibrillation and heart failure are increasing in prevalence, and frequently coexist. Despite the desire to restore sinus rhythm in heart failure patients, large studies comparing rate control t...
Mortality and morbidity are higher among patients with atrial fibrillation and heart failure than among those with heart failure alone. Catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation has been proposed as a...
Modern cardiac implantable devices provide diagnostic information on several physiological variables which are associated with worsening heart failure, creating an opportunity for early intervention t...
Interventional techniques have been developed for a wide spectrum of mechanisms of heart failure (HF), especially in valvular heart disease and cardiomyopathies (ischaemic cardiomyopathy and hypertrop...
Acute dyspnea is one of the main reasons for admission to Emergency Department (ED). Availability of ultraminiaturized pocket ultrasound devices (PUD) adds diagnostic power to the clinical examination...
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.
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.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
The study of the electrical activity and characteristics of the HEART; MYOCARDIUM; and CARDIOMYOCYTES.
