The purpose of this clinical trial is to evaluate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of left ventricular endocardial injection of guided bone marrow-derived cardiopoietic cells (C-Cure) in the setting of chronic heart failure secondary to ischemic cardiomyopathy.

This is a prospective, multi-center, open-label, single-arm feasibility trial to assess device safety and efficacy of the Cordella™ Heart Failure System in 10 NYHA Class III heart failur...
Heart failure is a condition that occurs when the heart muscle weakens and no longer contracts normally. Half of these patients have an irregularity of heart rhythm called atrial fibrilla...
The objective of the RELIEVE-HF study is to provide reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of the V-Wave Interatrial Shunt System by improving meaningful clinical outcomes in pat...
CardioMEMS is an implantable wireless hemodynamic monitoring system which can transmit the pulmonary artery pressure. This device is FDA approved to be used as a diagnostic tool to help ma...
In today's world of advanced surgery, children born with congenital heart disease (CHD) are surviving into adulthood. However, the surgical procedures these children undergo do not cure th...
Wireless monitoring of pulmonary artery (PA) pressures with the CardioMEMS HF™ system is indicated in patients with New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III heart failure (HF). Randomized and obs...
Barriers in heart failure self-care contribute to heart failure hospitalizations, but geographic differences have not been well-studied. We aimed to compare self-care barriers in heart failure patient...
Long-term data on outcomes of participants hospitalized with heart failure (HF) from low and middle-income countries are limited.
The primary aim of the TRIAGE-HF trial was to correlate cardiac implantable electronic device-generated heart failure risk status (HFRS) with signs, symptoms, and patient behaviours classically associ...
Recognizing the rising prevalence of heart failure in China, patients with heart failure have substantial palliative needs. This review highlights recent evidence on the epidemic of heart failure, ide...
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.
Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
